The California Highway Patrol is investigating a traffic collision that left three people injured in the Keystone area of California on Tuesday, July 28th. They identified two of the victims in the car accident report as Helen Vermillion, 68, and Sadi Tucker, 18, of Atwater.
The CHP said that a 2017 Audi A4 and a 2010 Subaru Forester were involved in the collision. It happened near Tulloch Road and Highway 108 at about 7:45 p.m. The investigators said that Tucker drove the Audi westbound on Highway 120, and she entered the path of the Subaru driven by a 66-year-old man.
The two vehicles collided, and the impact caused the Subaru to overturn, leaving the driver with significant injuries. The medics flew the motorist to a hospital in Modesto to receive treatment. Vermillion, a passenger in the car, sustained moderate wounds and received treatment in a hospital.
Tucker sustained minor injuries, and the paramedics attended to her at the scene. The CHP said that they do not suspect that drugs or alcohol were contributing factors in the accident. There is no additional information at this time.
