Major Injury Collision at Valley Ford and Walker Roads
PETALUMA (October 1, 2018)- According to the California Highway Patrol, a major injury head-on collision was reported this morning at the intersection of Valley Ford and Walker roads.
At roughly 11:25 a.m., an alleged gold-colored Lexus and a large sized truck hauling ladders were involved in the accident.
Following the collision, several motorists became trapped and were confirmed to have been injured as both vehicles were noted to have both caught fire.
Emergency Airship Called to Scene
A medical airship was dispatched to the scene due to the severity of the incident itself as paramedics quickly attended to the injured victims, at least one of which was flown to a trauma center.
California Highway Patrol officials were still present at the scene compiling evidence in hope to determine what exactly happened and why as those details are unclear at this time.

A forensic examination of both vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle, and whether or not one of the drivers did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, victims involved in any given auto accident and not found liable are entitled to personal injury lawsuit against the driver pending the results of the investigation. Injured victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills and pain and suffering.
