Auto Accident Injures Stockton Residents Near Williams
I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton personal injury lawyer. An auto accident claimed the life of one party and left five with traumatic injuries on June 17, 2018. At approximately 12:30 in the afternoon, a woman was driving her Ford Fusion eastbound along Highway 20 when her vehicle veered off onto the right shoulder of the roadway and struck a guardrail. The Ford continued uncontrollably into the westbound lane and collided head-on with a 2006 Honda Odyssey. Due to the impact of the collision, the Honda came to a rest along the westbound lane of Highway 20 while the Ford overturned onto its roof. The motorist and four passengers of the Honda, all identified as residents of Stockton, were transported by medical personnel to a hospital for treatment of injuries described as major to moderate. Unfortunately, the driver of the Ford was pronounced deceased at the scene. Officials have identified the victim as 52-year-old Barbara Newton of Orangevale.
