According to reports, the multi-vehicle accident happened just after 9:00 a.m. Moreover, it occurred on Twain Avenue and Duneville Street.
The police noted that stop signs control the intersection on Dunevill Street. As a result, northbound and southbound vehicles are required to stop and yield to vehicles from eastbound and westbound Twain Avenue.

Meanwhile, a southbound Toyota Scion XD on Duneville Street entered the intersection at Twain Avenue. The authorities noted that the Toyota Scion didn’t yield to the posted stop sign.
Then, the BMW’s front crashed onto the right side of the Toyota Scion. The impact redirected both cars in a southeastern direction.
Afterward, the Toyota Scion spun 180 degrees clockwise. Then, it veered off the road and struck a short brick wall.
On the other hand, the BMW went into the right eastbound travel lane. Then, it crashed into the Toyota Echo.
As a result of the crash, responders took the 75-year-old driver of the Toyota Scion to UMC Trauma. However, despite medical intervention, he succumbed to his injuries.
