1 Hospitalized in Tracy Auto Accident on Grant Line Road and Lincoln Boulevard
TRACY, CA (January 20, 2021) – Monday morning, a driver sustained injuries in a two-vehicle crash on Grant Line Road and Lincoln Boulevard.
According to authorities, a westbound tractor-trailer truck collided with a Honda sedan in the westbound lanes of Grant Line Road. Then, officers found the wrecked sedan facing south in the crosswalk near the middle of the intersection with Lincoln Boulevard.
Responding crews from South San Joaquin County Fire Authority firefighters extricated the trapped driver of the sedan from the vehicle.
Meanwhile, paramedics transported the sedan driver, a Tracy resident, to a hospital with critical injuries.
Also, the tractor-trailer driver remained at the scene to cooperate with the authorities.
Officers closed the road to give way to the department’s traffic unit conducting an investigation.
Furthermore, reports revealed that both vehicles involved in the crash were towed to the city corporation yard awaiting further investigation.
All roads were reopened to motorists just afternoon.
If you feel yourself drifting into other lanes due to fatigue or any other reason, safely pull over and rest before continuing to drive. You can also call a friend or an Uber to pick you up if you feel like it would be unsafe to drive.
Ways to Deal with Car Accidents
Each year, around 20-50 million people are injured or become disabled due to an auto crash. To avoid suffering from such incidents, practice safe driving habits on the road at all times.
As a driver, it’s your responsibility to do it even when it is empty, even when there is no police officer around to make sure you make, say, a complete stop.
Even with the best driving habits, it is still important to know what to do if you find yourself in a motor vehicle accident
