Man, 26, Injured in Spacer Drive Head-on Crash
DATE OF COLLISION: Saturday, August 4th
August 6, 2018- According to the Visalia Times-Delta, a deadly head-on collision was reported over the weekend on Spacer Drive just north of Avenue 192 which left a man badly hurt and a woman fatally injured.
Authorities did not indicate what time the accident occurred but confirmed a Chevy Malibu and a Chevy Silverado were the involved vehicles.
The driver of the Malibu, a 21-year-old woman, had been driving northbound on Spacer before veering over into southbound lanes directly into the path of a 26-year-man in the Silverado.
The crash left the man in the Silverado seriously injured as he was rushed to Kaweah Delta Med Center in critical condition. He has not been identified publicly at this time.

A forensic examination of both vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what ultimately caused the accident. Based on the preliminary information provided, however, it appears as though the 21-year-old woman will likely be held fully responsible for this incident.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the injured 26-year-old man will have the right to a personal injury lawsuit against the driver of the Malibu. Injured accident victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost future income, and pain and suffering.
