Double Fatality Wrong Way Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Marysville-Yuba City auto accident attorney. One of the most catastrophic and deadly types of accidents I see in my office are those involving wrong way drivers. Sadly, two Yuba City men passed away in a wrong way crash over the weekend along Highway 99 in the vicinity of Elverta Road.

What happened?

According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a double fatality wrong way crash took place around 10:50 p.m. on Sunday, August 28, 2016. CHP Officer C. Hertzell indicated the traffic collision was between a Toyota Land Cruiser and a Honda Accord.

Victims in Honda Were Killed

The Honda was headed northbound in the southbound lanes of travel along Highway 99 just south of Elverta Road when the two cars collided. Unfortunately, the two occupants inside of the Honda Accord passed away as a result of their injuries.
