Two Men Killed in Deadly Pearblossom Accident
Two men died as the result of a wrong way collision on Saturday, December 11th.
According to CHP, Grant Molino, 21, and Jason Hernandez, 46, were traveling the wrong way in a pickup truck.
The two were not wearing seatbelts when they collided head-on with a Ford Sedan on Pearblossom Highway.
Upon impact, the pickup overturned, killing both the driver, Molino, and the passenger, Hernandez.
In addition, the collision took place around 3 a.m. within the eastbound lanes.
It is unclear at this time what factored into the accident; however, the other driver did not sustain any injuries.
An active investigation is also underway.
JT Legal Group sends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Grant Molino and Jason Hernandez.
Although crashes involving wrong-way driving account for only 3% of motor vehicle accidents, they usually have a higher fatality rate as they are often head-on collisions. A study in Virginia concluded that those accidents which include wrong-way driving are twenty-seven times more likely to end in a fatality compared to other types of accidents.
