Copperopolis, California – Five People Injured, One Dead after Brutal Accident on O’Byrnes Ferry Road
Copperopolis, Calavares County, California (July 8, 2018) – Local news sources reported that five people were injured, one killed as the result of a brutal accident involving a 2010 Jeep and a 2008 Scion that took place on O’Byrnes Ferry Road, in the vicinity of Duchess Driver. The incident happened at roughly 2:00 PM in the afternoon on Wednesday, July 4, 2018. Authorities have identified the Jeep driver as 31-year old Patterson resident Eliah Joy Curry Jensen and the Scion driver as 30-year old Daniel Glover, of Woodbridge. Officials have also revealed the deceased to be 71-year old Daveonne Curry, another Patterson resident who was a passenger in the Jeep.
According to California Highway Patrol reports, Jensen was driving the Jeep northbound on O’Byrnes Road near Duchess Drive. Simultaneously, Glover was driving the Scion southbound on the same route. Attempting to make a left turn, Jensen swerved directly towards the oncoming Scion, ultimately resulting in the collision.
First responders confirmed Daveonne Curry died from traumatic injuries at Mark Twain Medical Center.
Other Jeep occupants included 32-year old Joshiwin Curry, 21-year old Kendra Curry, and 3-year old Rimmington Jensen. All three victims were taken to Adventist Health Sonora for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
