According to several news agencies, a driver was sent to the hospital as a result of an accident that happened last Sunday on Highway 18.
The official reports recently released by the California Highway Patrol have revealed that a 17-year-old motorist was driving a 1996 Pontiac Firebird on the southbound lanes of the Highway 18 around 11:45 a.m. when he suddenly was incapable of negotiating a right-hand curve. According to the troopers who responded to the accident, the vehicle ended up crossing the center median, slamming broadside into an oncoming 2002 Nissan Altima and crashed into a metal guardrail. The authorities also revealed that the Nissan Altima spun out of control as a result of the impact of the crash, ejecting the driver who was not wearing his seat belt. The Nissan passenger wasn’t injured.
According to the CHP, the Pontiac driver and his passenger sustained minor injuries while the Nissan driver sustained moderate injuries.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating this accident but troopers believe that the 17-year-old driver was going too fast for road conditions at the time of the crash.
I sincerely hope that all victims of this crash are recovering quickly from all wounds they have sustained. I’m terribly saddened to have learned that this accident has resulted in injuries but I’m glad that all individuals involved in this accident weren’t severely hurt in any way. I urge drivers to keep it in mind that they must follow traffic regulations and remember that speeding could be fatal. Stay safe and keep other drivers and passengers safe by never driving above the speed limit.
