Two people suffered injuries from a two-vehicle collision in Earlimart, California, on Monday afternoon, September 14th. The car accident report disclosed their names as Roberto Barron Vejar, 48, and Adelmira Sanchez, 35, both from Delano.
According to the California Highway Patrol, they received a report about the incident at about 3:20 p.m. and dispatched officers to the area of Avenue 48 and Road 160. The preliminary investigation uncovered that a 26-year-old McFarland woman operated a 2014 Nissan Sentra northbound on N-160.
The driver failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a 2003 Toyota Tacoma traveling west on A-48. The woman and her two passengers, a 4-year-old and a 4-month-old, also from McFarland, died in the crash.
The investigators said that the motorist did not properly restrain the minors in the child passenger seat. The Tacoma driver, Vejar, and his passenger, Sanchez, sustained minor injuries and received treatment in a hospital.
The highway patrol said that alcohol or drugs did not appear to have played a role in the occurrence in any capacity. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
Two-vehicle collisions are one of the common causes of accidents in California and the United States. Factors leading to this type of occurrence are avoidable if drivers follow traffic rules and regulations.
One of the above is obeying stop signs and drivers must avoid trying to beat a yellow light. Additionally, drive carefully and cautiously at all times, and make safety a priority.
