Auto accidents happen too often in California. And unfortunately, many occur because of issues that could have been prevented. Sometimes, when we hear about accidents that happen because of actions that could have been prevented, we wonder if officials and others failed locals by not working harder to raise awareness to the risks associated with certain activities. That’s why we strive to help our readers and clients learn more about accidents so they can avoid similar occurrences.
According to a series of news reports, a serious and deadly accident that happened Sunday morning in Yolo took the lives of six people.
The Interstate 5 accident happened at about 12:30 in the morning. A Dodge vehicle carrying six people was traveling northbound when a Chevrolet driving south drove the wrong way and collided with the Dodge vehicle.
After the impact, both cars were engulfed in flames.
Witnesses told reporters that a truck driver tried to put out the flames to no success.
Reporters say that after the accident, many Californians were complaining about how little is done to ensure these accidents aren’t happening. Unfortunately, authorities are not investigating this accident, reports show. Instead, they are waiting for autopsies to know whether anybody was intoxicated prior to the accident.
Witnesses say that the Chevrolet driver had been driving erratically prior to the collision.
