The accident happened when a 2016 Ford Escape heading westbound on Avenue D turned left, directly into the path of a white 2013 Honda Accord traveling on the eastbound lane. The two female passengers in the Ford Escape were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash while the driver was ejected from the vehicle. The toddler who was also an occupant in the vehicle was sent to the hospital where she later died as a result of her injuries.
The 37-year-old driver, who’s from Palmdale, was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. The driver behind the wheel of the Honda Accord was also rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
The investigation into this crash is still ongoing, and no details on the factors that led to this recall were revealed. Nevertheless, we hope the authorities are able to act promptly by identifying the factors that have led to this accident. All too often, crashes occur because drivers were not paying attention to the road, but while distraction is increasingly one of the most common factors behind auto crashes across the country, intoxicated driving is still a serious problem.
Drivers who are serious about their safety should keep in mind that driving a vehicle is a responsibility. Driving irresponsibly leads to negative, and potentially deadly consequences.
