Head-On Collision Fatally Injures Three Near Merced
I’m Ed Smith, a Merced car accident lawyer. Three individuals passed away after a head-on collision outside Merced on May 29, 2018. The accident took place shortly after 9:30 a.m. along East Yosemite Avenue in the vicinity of Kibby Road. A 1996 Nissan Sentra was traveling westbound toward Merced and was reportedly attempting to overtake two slower vehicles by entering the eastbound lane of the roadway. While doing so, the Nissan collided head-on with an oncoming 2000 Honda Civic. The impact of the collision caused the Honda to be thrown along the shoulder of the road while the Nissan overturned. Unfortunately, the accident caused serious injuries to one party and claimed the lives of three.
My thoughts and prayers are with those grieving the loss of their loved ones during this difficult time.
