CHP reported a head-on collision involving a motorhome and van Monday afternoon.
It was at about 3:10 p.m. when the two collided at the junction of Highway 46 on July 11th.
A Tioga motorhome, which was towing a Honda Accord, crashed head-on with a van for unknown reasons.
Debris became scattered across the roadway as a result.
Three people suffered injuries; one had a severe laceration to the left knee and another suffered a rib injury and arm lacerations.
It was also reported that the motorhome sustained major damage and required a heavy-duty tow truck.
Investigators are actively working to determine liability.
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
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.
