Barbara Fersc Airlifted to Sutter Hospital After DUI Crash on Highway 49
Diamond Springs, CA (October 26, 2020) – On October 17, 73-year-old Barbara Fersc, an out of state resident, was injured in a DUI crash on Highway 49 near Bradley Drive.
The incident took place at around 10:35 p.m. when the 32-year-old Lauren Burger of Sacramento went off the road and struck a road divider.
The authorities arrested Burger on suspicion of drunk driving. At the same time, the rescuers airlifted Fersc to Sutter Hospital in Roseville. She sustained neck and back injuries.
Practice safe driving habits on the road at all times… even when it is empty, even when there is no police officer around to make sure you make a full and complete stop.
Scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to look out or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead.
