EUREKA (July 12, 2017)- According to the Time Standard, a major injury car accident was reported Sunday, July 9, at the intersection of Highway 101 and Airport Road.
The collision took place at roughly 10:34 a.m. involving a 1992 Chevy pickup and a 2016 Hyundai.
Per the article, Jose Homen, 88, of Arcata, was the driver of the pickup truck headed northbound on Highway 101 attempting to turn onto Airport Road who failed to yield to the oncoming southbound Hyundai driven by Amber Parcher, 21, of Bakersfield, triggering the wreck.
The collision left Amber Parcher and both of her passengers with injuries as they were all taken to Mad River Community Hospital for the treatment of their injuries. Their conditions have not been updated thus far.

Highway 101 has been considered one of the most dangerous highways to drive on in California as there have been countless major injury accidents over the course of the past few years. It is imperative to proceed with caution and have complete awareness of your surroundings while being on the look out for other drivers, motorcyclist, bicyclists, and pedestrians who are difficult to spot at times. JAG Founder James Johnson has settled several injury collisions including one recently in the Humboldt County area on Highway 101 making him very familiar with the road itself and the dangers.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, Amber Parcher and both of her passengers will be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the driver, Jose Homen, seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost future income, and pain and suffering.
