Joseph Laurie Airlifted in Highway 70 Collision

Blairsden, CA (December 18, 2021)– Yesterday, 51-year-old Dwayne Norton of Portola and 57-year-old Joseph Laurie of Beckwourth, sustained injuries in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 70.

The traffic incident happened just before 2 p.m. at the intersection with State Route 89.

Laurie in a 1999 green Jeep Cherokee was stopped in the northbound lane of State Route 89.

At the same time, Norton, in a 2004 black Honda Pilot was eastbound on Highway 70 approaching State Route 89.

Laurie saw the eastbound vehicle ahead of the Honda Pilot turning right onto southbound State Route 89. 

However, he did not see Norton approaching behind the first vehicle.  Laurie began to drive forward into the intersection directly in front of the Honda Pilot.

Norton did not have any time to slow and collided into the left side of Laurie’s Jeep Cherokee.

Immediately, the rescuers rushed Norton to Renown Medical Center by ground ambulance, and  air lifted Laurie to the same hospital.

When driving, better to 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. Our bodies are designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead.


Injured in Two-Vehicle Crash

According to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year. It is therefore important to follow all the traffic laws to avoid these types of accidents.

“A common misconception is that personal injury lawyers don’t care. That is simply not true. Injury lawyers care about and want justice for their clients. We are driven by the desire to make our clients whole again,” says Steve Baric of Sweet Lawyers, an attorney practicing for over 40 years.

Moreover, the most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney. Mark Sweet, a personal injury attorney at Sweet Lawyers, says that serious car accident cases may call for a separate investigation spearheaded by an experienced lawyer fighting on behalf of a party.
