Kayla Farr and Charleen Long Car Accident Lower Lake on Highway 53Kayla Farr, 24; and Charleen Long, 33, Injured in Lower Lake Car Crash

LAKE COUNTY (January 8, 2019) – Two drivers were injured after a traffic collision along Highway 53 in Lower Lake last week Thursday, January 3, according to The Press Democrat and Lace County News.

The motorists have been identified as 24-year-old Hidden Valley Lake resident Kayla Farr and 33-year-old Lower Lake resident Charleen Long.

As per the reports, California Highway Patrol said the accident began when a man stopped and exited his 2006 Mitsubishi Montero within the northbound No. 1 lane of Highway 53.

At the same time, Farr was driving a 2012 Ford Fusion in the same direction behind a large vehicle whose operator abruptly veered to the right upon seeing the Montero.

Farr then stepped on the brakes to avoid colliding with the Mitsubishi but was rear-ended by a 2009 Ford Focus driven by 48-year-old Tricia Snider.

The Fusion ultimately hit the man standing beside the Montero, while Snider also slammed into the stopped car.

A 2012 Ford Focus operated by Long was unable to react and struck the back of the Focus. The accident took place just before 1 p.m., south of Anderson Ranch Parkway.

CHP affirmed that both Farr and Long sustained minor injuries upon impact. Snider, of Hidden Valley Lake, was unharmed in the wreck.

Meanwhile, the man from the Mitsubishi was airlifted to a hospital and was listed in fair condition. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.

A forensic examination of all five vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of the crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or or did not yield to the right-of-way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles as point of impact, its final resting position, skid marks, and gouge marks.

Pending the result and findings of the investigation, the injured and held not liable for the collision may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
