Morning Chain-Reaction Crash in Clover Creek Hurts One
CLOVER CREEK, CA (January 15, 2019) – A woman was hurt following a chain-reaction crash Tuesday morning in Clover Creek.
The crash happened around 7:27 a.m. at the intersection of Airport Road and Rancho Road.
According to the CHP, a pickup truck pulling a trailer rear-ended another truck, which hit an SUV and another vehicle. A school bus was reportedly unable to stop in time and rear-ended one of the already involved vehicles.
One vehicle was pinned in the crash and its female occupant was hurt upon impact.
Paramedics were dispatched to the scene to provide medical aid. The extent of injuries sustained was not immediately available.
It is unknown if drugs and/or alcohol were contributing factors in the crash. An investigation is still ongoing to determine the cause and liability.
When driving, it is always best to leave more space between you and the vehicle in front. Following too closely not only increases your chance of hitting the vehicle in front but also guarantees you will be braking harder when that vehicle’s brakes are applied. This will cause the trailing vehicle to also brake rapidly, increasing the chance of a collision. Be prepared to accelerate and steer to where you want to go.
