Jennifer Culkins Injured, William Smith Involved in Shasta County Crash

Shasta County, CA (October 23, 2021)– On Thursday,  39-year-old Jennifer Culkins suffered injuries in a Shasta Dam Boulevard pedestrian accident involving 42-year-old William Smith.

Officers received the accident report at about 5 p.m. at the intersection with Oregon Avenue.

Witnesses said Culkins walked in front of Smith’s vehicle that was stopped at the intersection.

Then, Smith accelerated to make a turn while Culkins was in front of his vehicle.

Immediately, the medics arrived at the accident scene and pulled Culkins out from under Smith’s vehicle. Officers said she was conscious and responsive.

The rescue team rushed Culkins to the hospital for sustaining injuries from the accident.

Apparently, the backpack Culkins was wearing became stuck under the vehicle. As a result, she was dragged about 50 feet.

Investigating officers said Smith was southbound on Oregon Avenue and made a turn onto eastbound Shasta Dam Boulevard.

He discovered Culkins was under the front passenger side tire of his vehicle. That is when he pulled over and called for help.

Officers do not suspect DUI in this incident.

The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic accidents. If you are a driver, pay close attention to those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near.


How Can We Prevent Accidents Like the One in Shasta Dam Boulevard?

With the rise of social distancing as a safety measure to slow the spread of COVID-19, walking outside has increased in commonality.

As a result, pedestrian accidents become more widespread.

A pedestrian accident is when a vehicle struck a person on foot.

These accidents are sometimes caused by pedestrians ignoring crosswalk signals and difficult weather conditions.

Luckily, we can prevent pedestrian accidents.

Here are some of the things we can do to avoid pedestrian accidents:

– Make yourself visible: wear bright-colored clothes and carry a flashlight if you are walking at night.

– Stay off your phones, talking and especially texting distracts you from paying attention to your surroundings.

– Look before you step: cross streets at marked crosswalks/intersections, obey traffic signals, and watch for turning vehicles.
