Motorhome Crash on Highway 46

Investigators are working to determine the cause of a head-on collision that occurred in Shandon on July 11th. 

A motorhome towing a Honda Accord reportedly crashed head-on with a van around 3:10 p.m.

The wreck occurred on Highway 46, just west of Highway 41. 

Debris became scattered across the roadway as a result and left 3 people injured.

The motorhome also sustained major damage and required a heavy-duty tow truck.

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. 

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.
