A single-car crash along Highway 101 on Monday morning involved a 28-year-old man from McKinleyville who was driving a truck at the time of the collision. He succumbed to his injuries after being treated at the University of California Davis Medical Center, just before 5pm on Monday. This was confirmed by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office on Wednesday. The truck driver was behind the wheel of a 2003 Ford F250 traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 101, south of the North Central Avenue exit. His vehicle veered to the right, and he over-corrected causing his vehicle to overturn.
According to a news release, the driver was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. He suffered critical brain damage in the collision. His passengers, a 22-year-old and 28-year-old were also hurt in the collision. The crash is under investigation, and authorities believe alcohol may have been a factor. As a San Bernardino personal injury lawyer, my thoughts are with the family of the driver. If you or a loved one were hurt in an auto accident caused by a negligent driver, discuss your case with a qualified San Bernardino car accident lawyer.
