Two Drivers Hospitalized after Rear-End Collision near Devere Mautino Park
GRASS VALLEY, CA (October 12, 2018) – A teenager was airlifted Friday morning following a three-vehicle crash on Alta Street. The victim was later identified as 18-year-old Dylon Zaworski, a resident of Grass Valley.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident took place at about 10:13 AM near Devere Mautino Park. A Nissan Altima, driven by Zaworski, was heading north on Alta when it failed to avoid a slowed Chevrolet pickup truck that was attempting to make a right turn.
The impact of the crash caused the Nissan to overturn and to land partially on the front of a southbound Ford Ranger.
The driver of the Ford, identified as 34-year-old Jeremy Hlebichuk of Nevada City, refused treatment but was later rushed to the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital due to suspected minor injuries. Meanwhile, Zaworski was airlifted to the Sutter Roseville Medical Center, where she is expected to survive. Further updates on their current medical conditions were not immediately available.
Distracted driving and high speed are believed to have been factors in the crash, which remains under investigation. It is unknown whether or not the involved parties were secured in their seatbelts. No additional information has been disclosed to the public at this time.
