US 101 Crash Injures Paul Stemper of Paso Robles, Suspect Concepcion Garcia Oropeza Wanted

 
Templeton, CA (May 05, 2021) – On Tuesday, 60-year-old Paul Stemper of Paso Robles was injured, while 35-year-old Concepcion Garcia Oropezaof Atascadero was suspected of the hit-and-run crash on US 101.
 
The crash took place at about 3:35 p.m. on the northbound lanes of the 101 Freeway, north of Del Rio Road.
 
A green, 1998 Honda Civic driven by Oropeza was seen driving in a reckless manner.
 
He was speeding northbound and making unsafe lane changes. At some point, he attempted to move into the right lane from the left.
 
However, Oropeza lost control of his vehicle and drove onto the east asphalt shoulder. Then, he drifted back to the left towards the traffic lanes and traveled out of control in a westerly direction.
 
That is where his vehicle struck the rear of a white GMC Sierra, driven by Paul Stemper.
 
As a result, Stemper traveled out of control in an easterly direction, crossing all traffic lanes.
 
Afterward, his vehicle went down an embankment and rolled over through a chain-link fence, where it finally stopped on its wheels.
 
Oropeza immediately fled the accident scene and traveled northbound on US 101.
 
Meanwhile, Stemper suffered moderate injuries as a result of the crash.
 
Oropeza’s whereabouts are currently unknown, and the authorities are still searching for him.
 
Please contact the Templeton CHParea office at (805) 434-1822 if you know where Oropeza may be located.
 
Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate. Keep some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time, should the one ahead make a sudden turn or stop.


Preventing Crash Injuries

 
While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. This is because accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
 
Here are some ways that we can practice defensive driving:
 
Always drive at the speed limit.
 
Never assume that you know another driver’s intention.
 
Be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
 
Yield at intersections, especially if another vehicle is recklessly trying to take your turn.
 
Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as cell phones or other devices.
