Truckee Major Injury Head-on Crash on Highway 89 Thursday, October 4thHead-on Collision on Highway 89

TRUCKEE (October 4, 2018)- According to the California Highway Patrol, a major injury head-on crash was reported this morning on Highway 89 at or near Cain Creek Road.

CHP officials responded to the accident which took place at roughly 8:26 a.m. between an alleged pickup truck or a street sweeper truck and possibly a Porsche sedan.

At Least 2 Motorists Badly Injured

Both vehicles incurred major damage leaving at least two motorists with very serious injuries.

At least two ambulances were required to transport the injured victims, per CHP authorities.

At this time, it has been confirmed that one of the two vehicles veered into opposing traffic lanes triggering the head-on collision but it remains unclear which driver it was.

Authorities were at the scene for at least an hour and a half investigating what happened, gathering evidence, and interviewing any possible witnesses who may have seen the accident take place.

No additional details have been provided.

A forensic examination of both vehicles involved, 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, which driver had the right-of-way, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by each vehicle 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, injured accident victims not held responsible for an accident will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Injured accident victims may seek recompense for damages including medical expenses, hospital bills, and pain and suffering.
