Pickup enters oncoming traffic and causes major accident

A pickup truck in California apparently left its own travel lane, entered the lane for the oncoming traffic, and started a four-car crash that left people with serious injuries and all four cars in bad enough condition that they had to be towed from the scene.

Per the California Highway Patrol and local reports, the incident happened on Thursday, February 20. It took place right around 8:05 in the morning. The wreck was so bad that they could not open the road back up for three hours.

The truck at the center of it all was a Ford F-150. Officials estimate it was driving around 60 miles per hour. It was going north with a double yellow line between it and the southbound lanes, but it drifted to the left and crossed those lines. This put it right in the path of a Volkswagen Jetta that was going south.

The head-on crash between the pickup and the small car was bad enough, but it was just the beginning. The Jetta went out of control and got hit a second time, this time by a Freightliner tow truck. After that, a Ford Fusion that had been behind the Jetta smashed into it for a third collision.

The tow truck driver went to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital with moderate injuries, but things were far more serious for the Jetta driver. They had major injuries and also got rushed to Santa Rosa by emergency crews.

Drivers make mistakes and human error causes accidents every day. If you get injured, you may have a right to compensation for medical bills and other costs.
