6 people injured in Lakeville Highway accident

The highways that stretch from one side of California to the next are traveled by millions of people everyday of the week. For this reason, the chance of an auto accident always exists. For this reason, drivers need to be cautious at all times.

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, an accident on Lakeville Highway led to injuries suffered by five members of the California Conservation Corps driving in a Ford F-550 truck.

According to the California Highway Patrol, 11 members of the California Conservation Corps were traveling to the site of a restoration project when the driver of a Ford F-150 drifted over the center line and struck the side of the F-550.

After being struck, the F-550 overturned and eventually came to a stop on its right side. The F-150 was also badly damaged.

The driver of the F-150 was seriously injured in the accident and was extricated from the vehicle by emergency crews. He was then taken by air to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

Five of the passengers riding in the F-550 were also injured, with some taken to Petaluma Valley Hospital and the others to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. All five suffered minor to moderate injuries.

As a result of the accident, Lakeville Highway was closed until 1:10 p.m., while police investigated, and crews cleaned up the wreckage.

An auto accident can happen at anytime, resulting in injuries to multiple people. In this case, the driver of the vehicle who caused the accident was seriously injured. Along with this, five others were taken to the hospital for treatment. Anybody who has been injured on the road due to the negligence of another party have the right to seek compensation for their injuries and other damages.
