COPPEROPOLIS, CA (August 9, 2021) – Omar Hanifeh and Taher Hanifeh were seriously injured in a Copperopolis crash at O’Byrnes Ferry Road and Highway 4.

The California Highway Patrol identified the two Elk Grove residents as the occupants of the same car which ended up in an accident on Monday.

The incident began when Taher Hanifeh, 22, was driving a 2006 Toyota Avalon north on O’Byrnes Ferry Road in Copperopolis. He was traveling with Omar Hanifeh, 24, and two others.

At the same time, a 2012 Ford F-150 pickup truck was going west on Highway 4. CHP said Taher Hanifeh entered the intersection and drove into the path of the Ford.

The crash left Taher Hanifeh with moderate injuries and Omar Hanifeh with major injuries. Paramedics took Taher to the Modesto Memorial and Omar to the Doctors Medical Center for treatment.
