Head-on collision in California results in fatality

Head-on car accidents sometimes result in an individual’s death. This can be seen in a head-on collision that occurred over the weekend in California.

The accident happened on Sunday near Bonsall, California. Reportedly, that afternoon, a car was traveling east along Route 76. The car was being driven by a 53-year-old woman.

The car was then struck head-on by a westbound pickup truck that had crossed onto the road’s eastbound side.

Allegedly, the pickup truck was moving erratically in the moments leading up to the crash. The pickup truck’s driver, a 22-year-old man, reportedly is suspected of having been under the influence at the time of the accident. He was arrested after the crash. Included among the charges the man is facing are charges of a Golden, CO DUI and gross vehicular manslaughter.

The 53-year-old woman died as a result of this head-on auto collision. The crash also caused the 22-year-old man and three passengers of the 53-year-old woman’s car to suffer injuries.

As this tragic incident shows, head-on motor vehicle accidents can sometimes result in a fatality.

Thus, it is very important for motorists in California to do everything they reasonably can to prevent head-on auto collisions. This includes making sure to not engage in reckless conduct (like driving while under the influence) when out on the roads. It also includes doing everything one reasonably can to not interfere with opposing lanes of traffic when driving.

One hopes that motor vehicle drivers will do what they can to help keep California’s roads safe.
