Early Monday morning, a single-car wreck on Highway 101 caused three injuries, and officials believe alcohol may have been involved in the crash. According to a California Highway Patrol press release, a 28-year-old was driving a 2003 Ford F250 southbound on Highway 101 when his vehicle began drifting to the right. He over-corrected, which caused the vehicle to overturn. The driver was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected during the crash. A 22-year-old passenger was also not wearing a seat belt and became trapped underneath the vehicle. A third passenger who was wearing a seat belt sustained minor lacerations to his left leg.
According to news reports, the driver was brought to Mad River Community Hospital, then later transported to University of California Davis Medical Center for major head injury. The investigation into the collision remains ongoing, says CHP. As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, I’m glad no one was more seriously hurt in this wreck.
