A young woman from Sonora was involved in a tragic collision Monday morning in Calaveras County, and new evidence has emerged which shows why the crash happened. The 22-year-old was texting with her boyfriend when the crash occurred. The California Highway Patrol said the crash started when the young woman veered out of the northbound lane of Highway 49 in her Honda Accord, between San Andreas and Angels Camp. She crossed into the southbound lane after over-correcting and collided with a pick-up truck head-on. The pick-up truck occupants, two men, were treated at a local hospital for moderate injuries.
According to news reports, phone records were obtained by authorities which indicated she was texting just prior to the crash at 7:35am. As a personal injury attorney Los Angeles, my thoughts are with the family of the woman involved in this collision. If you or a loved one were harmed in an auto accident caused by negligence, discuss your case with a knowledgeable, skilled car accident attorney who can evaluate your claim and help protect your rights. You may require the help of a skilled lawyer who can answer your important legal questions and assess your case.
