1 Dead in Merced Auto Accident on Highway 99 and Franklin Road
MERCED, CA (October 20, 2022) – Wednesday afternoon, a driver died in a rollover crash on Highway 99 and Franklin Road.
The incident happened in the first lane of northbound Highway 99, north of Franklin Road. According to the reports, a sedan had overturned off the road and sustained major rollover damage.
When the CHP arrived, they determined that a 67-year-old driver traveled along the first lane at an unknown speed. Then, the driver veered their car to the right. As a result, the sedan went off the east shoulder of the 99, causing it to roll multiple times.
Moreover, the 47-year-old front-seat passenger sustained moderate injuries and was taken to a local hospital. Meanwhile, the driver succumbed to injuries at the scene.
At this time, the authorities do not believe that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. Moreover, they haven’t determined whether the victims wore a seatbelt at the time of the incident.
Due to the limited information available, the authorities continued to investigate the crash.
We want to send our sincere sympathies to the bereaved family and friends of the victim of the crash on Highway 99 and Franklin Road.
