Merced County Accident Causes Road Closure
I’m Ed Smith, a Merced auto accident lawyer. A single-vehicle accident prompted the closure of a Merced County road to allow an emergency helicopter to land at the scene on August 1, 2018. At approximately 6:50 in the evening, a Cadillac Escalade was traveling along Oakdale Road in the vicinity of Shaffer Road when the vehicle left the roadway for an unknown reason and crashed. Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene to render aid to at least one party injured in the accident. The extent of the injuries sustained in the crash has not yet been released by authorities.
