Man and Woman Dead in Wrong-Way Crash on Highway 101 in Greenfield
GREENFIELD, CA (July 21, 2019) – Two people died following a wrong-way crash on Highway 101 in Monterey County late Sunday evening.
The crash took place at 11:51 p.m. on northbound Highway 101 near Hudson Road. A white 2002 Honda Odyssey, driven by a 71-year-old Salinas man, was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes at a high rate of speed, when it collided head-on with a 2015 Nissan Rogue, driven by a 38-year-old San Jose woman.
Following the initial crash, the Nissan SUV was hit by a 2016 Ford Fusion, driven by an 18-year-old Folsom man, and a 2015 Peterbilt truck, driven by a 24-year-old Apple Valley man.
The Ford and tractor then continued further north and struck each other. At that point, all of the vehicles came to a stop.
The San Jose woman and the Salinas man were killed in the crash. Their names will be released by the Monterey County coroner’s office once their families are notified.
A 39-year-old male passenger and two children in the Nissan were transported to a hospital, according to the CHP. The adult passenger suffered major injuries.
The teen driver of the Ford and his 46-year-old female passenger, both from Folsom, had minor injuries.
