Daniel and Jennifer McCubbins Hurt; Fatal Crash on State Route 49 at Fricot City Road
SAN ANDREAS, Calif. (Sept. 4, 2018) — A teenage passenger died and several others were injured Tuesday morning in a 4-vehicle collision on Golden Chain Highway 49 at Fourth Crossing, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The collision took place about 9:12 a.m. and involved up to four vehicles including a work truck and a tan SUV, both vehicles ended up down a nearby hill. One of the involved vehicles reportedly was on fire and the occupants of the two vehicles that went off road did not immediately get out of their vehicles.
Klayton Powell, 25, of Jamestown, was reportedly driving his 2016 Chevrolet Silverado when his truck sideswiped a 1993 GMC Yukon being driven by Matthew Coldwell, 45, of Mountain Ranch. Next, the truck collided with a 2000 Saturn Vue, driven by Daniel McCubbins, 37, of Copperopolis. The Saturn veered off the roadway and down an embankment.
Powell’s truck also crashed into a 2017 International truck. Brayan Morales, 26 of Foothill Farms, was the driver of the truck that was involved. The impact caused Powell’s pickup to overturn down a west side embankment.
Jennifer McCubbins, 37, and Daniel McCubbins, were both taken to Memorial Hospital in Modesto for treatment of moderate injuries.
The multi-vehicle collision resulted in a long-term closure of the highway as police investigate what caused the accident.
