I’m Ed Smith, a Granite Bay auto accident attorney. At least five people were injured in a head on crash in Granite Bay on Monday, May 16, 2016.
A heavily trafficked Granite Bay road had to be shut down Monday morning after a two-car, head-on collision that injured five people.
A woman was behind the wheel of a silver sedan with three children inside.
A man was driving a Corvette and may have been traveling at a “high rate of speed,” according to investigators. Early reports suggest he may have left his lane and crossed over the center line prior to impact with the silver sedan.
Three Children Injured and Taken to Hospital
Three children in the silver sedan were rushed to the hospital with injuries of an unspecified nature.
The man driving the corvette and the woman driving the silver sedan were also taken to the hospital, officers said.
Auburn-Folsom Road at Cavitt Stallman were closed in both directions of travel while rescue workers assisted the injured and investigators processed the scene.
Where Did the Granite Bay Head On Crash Happen?
The crash happened around 7:30 a.m. along Auburn-Folsom Road in the vicinity of Cavitt Stallman Road.
Was the Man Driving the Corvette at Fault?
Maybe. Investigators believe the man driving the Corvette was proceeding at a “high rate of speed.” His vehicle crossed over the center line.
It generally takes up to ten days for the investigating agency to release their findings and produce a traffic collision report.
