Highway 156 Crash Leaves One Seriously Hurt
Two vehicles collided in Prunedale on Sunday afternoon, leaving one with major injuries.
It was at 1:09 p.m. when an SUV and Ford pickup truck collided on westbound Highway 156.
Due to the impact, the truck overturned onto its side.
As a result, one person suffered severe injuries and was hospitalized for treatment.

Investigators are actively working to determine liability.
Statistics show that rollover accidents account for about one-third of all fatalities in the U.S. In addition, 30% of vehicle fatalities are rollover crashes. These types of accidents are far more likely to result in a fatality than non-rollover crashes.
In the U.S. one’s odds of dying in a car accident is around 1 in 107.
Always make sure to wear a seatbelt, obey traffic laws, and avoid distractions while driving.
