Duane Roork, Jose Gomez, and Thomas York Injured in Nice Car Accident

 
NICE, CA (March 19, 2019) – On Tuesday morning, three people were injured in a car accident on Highway 20.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident occurred around 7:50 AM just east of Lakeshore Boulevard.
 
As per reports, 57-year-old Duane Roork was driving west on Highway 20 in a Toyota Corolla at 50 MPH. Due to unknown reasons, Roork’s vehicle veered across the solid double yellow lines and into the eastbound lane.
 
29-year old Jose Gomez was driving a 2012 Kenworth T660 east on the highway, when he saw Roork swerving. After that, the two vehicles collided. As a result, Roork’s car was pushed over the double yellow lines and into the westbound lane where it struck a 2012 Dodge Ram driven by 50-year-old Thomas York.
 
The Northshore Fire Department extracted Roork from his vehicle. Eventually, he was airlifted to the Vacaville Kaiser Hospital. Roork suffered a broken ankle and a punctured lung.
 
Gomez and York were treated at the scene with minor injuries. Their current medical condition is currently unknown.
 
The surrounding area was closed off for a brief time for cleanup and preliminary investigation, but has since reopened. Authorities believe fatigue was a contributing factor in the cause of the collision. No further details have been released regarding the circumstances leading up to the incident at this time.
 
Always be aware of your surroundings, especially when you are driving on a road. Even if you are not driving impaired or drowsy, it is possible to drift into other lanes. This can lead to a dangerous accident with deadly consequences.
