Willits Car Crash Highway 20, July 12
2 Injured in Willits Car Accident
WILLITS (July 18, 2017) – On July 12, two people were injured in a traffic accident which occurred near milepost 23 on Highway 20, according to Ukiah Daily Journal.
Police investigation revealed that an Indian man was driving a 2007 Jeep Patriot east at approximately 8:45 a.m. when for unknown reasons he crossed the double yellow lines at a curve.
The Jeep then veered into the opposite laneway, crashing head-on into a 2012 Brinks Armored vehicle driven by a Petaluma man.
The Brinks Armored vehicle spun out of control, and ended up colliding with an eastbound Toyota Scion operated by a Fort Bragg man. The Toyota was traveling behind the Jeep at the time.
As per the article, the drivers of all three vehicles were uninjured in the wreck. However a Fort Bragg woman riding the Scion, and a passenger in the Jeep complained of pain following the incident.
Both were transported to Howard Memorial Hospital for treatment.
At this time, authorities have not yet disclosed the names of the involved parties.
Based on the information provided by authorities, the man driving the 2007 Jeep Patriot will likely be responsible for causing the injury traffic collision.
California traffic regulations emphasize that it is illegal to cross double yellow lines. A double solid yellow line is a restrictive marking, meant to signal that passing is not allowed as it is unsafe, for reasons that vary from place to place.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, victims have the right to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. Victims are entitled to a compensation for damages including hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, property damage and other losses.
