2 Injured in Crash on Santa Fe Drive in Cressy
CRESSY, Calif. (Feb. 21, 2019) — A man and women were injured Wednesday night in a head-on crash on Santa Fe Drive and Cressey Way in Merced County.
The collision was reported at 7:19 p.m. between a 2000 GMC pickup truck and a 2011 Ford Escape. Police say a 23-year-old Turlock man driving the GMC was heading eastbound on Santa Fe Drive when he veered over into opposing traffic and struck the Ford. The 30-year-old woman driving the Ford had two children aboard when she was hit head-on by the pickup truck and it overturned.
The pickup truck was blocking both lanes of Sante Fe Drive after the crash, according to the California Highway Patrol report.
Paramedics responded and transported the injured woman to a local hospital in the Modesto area where she was treated for abrasions to her face and arms. The children in her vehicle, a 2-year-old boy and 6-month-old boy, did not appear to have any injuries. Meanwhile, the man driving the GMC suffered a broken ankle and was also taken to a hospital.
The crash remains under investigation to determine fault. It’s unknown at this time whether or not drugs or alcohol were factors.
