Fatal Santa Clarita Head-On Collision

Man in His 60s Killed Following Car Crash 

A head-on collision claimed the life of one unidentified man in his 60s on Sunday night. 

The deadly accident took place in Santa Clarita around 8:30 p.m. on February 13th. 

CHP reported that a northbound Toyota Prius veered into the southbound lanes, resulting in a head-on collision with a Honda CRV.

The two vehicles reportedly collided on San Francisquito Canyon Road.

Sadly, the Honda driver died at the scene of the crash. His name is being withheld; however, he was a Moorpark resident in his 60s. 

The 74-year-old passenger of the Honda also sustained major injuries and was airlifted to the hospital. 

In addition, the 54-year-old Lancaster resident who was the driver of the Toyota suffered moderate injuries. 

The crash remains under investigation. 

Head-on collisions are without a doubt the most dangerous types of crashes. They may only account for 2% of accidents, however they make up 10% of all deadly crashes. 

The Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) has found that: 

  • 75% of head-on crashes happen in rural areas
  • They are most common on two-lane highways
  • Failure in negotiating a curve on the road causes 23% of all fatal head-on collisions
  • 58% of head-on collisions result in a fatality

If your injuries are caused by the negligence of a third party you may be entitled to compensation. In the event of a death, families may be entitled to wrongful death benefits. 

It is also important to remember that in the state of California a person involved in a car accident who has sustained injuries has to file a claim within two years of the accident.
