1 Hurt in Butte County Auto Accident on Highway 32 and Meridian Road
BUTTE COUNTY, CA (October 28, 2021) – Wednesday morning, a woman suffered injuries in a rollover crash on Highway 32 and Meridian Road.
The incident occurred at about 7:00 a.m. on Highway 32 and Meridian Road.
According to reports, the crash involved a Jeep Wrangler and a Dodge Durango.
CHP Officer Torrey Rodgers confirmed that the Jeep traveled south on Meridian Road. Then, it stopped at a stop sign on the north side of Highway 32. As the Jeep attempted to cross Highway 32, an eastbound Durang on Highway 32 struck the Jeep on the side.
As a result, the Jeep rolled over, struck a fence, and landed on its roof. The Jeep rolled in front of a home, adjacent to Highway 32.
Meanwhile, the Jeep driver admitted that she thought she could cross the highway on time. However, her timing was off.
She sustained moderate injuries as a result. Meanwhile, the Durango occupants suffered no injuries in the crash.
Due to the limited information available, the authorities continue to investigate the incident.
As a driver, it is your responsibility to be a proactive driver, rather than a reactive one. Moreover, driving defensively prepares you for emergencies.
