Dixon, CA – Deadly Head-On Car Crash on Highway 113
Dixon, CA (July 21, 2018) – A head-on collision that reportedly occurred in the northbound lanes of Highway 113, sadly claimed the lives of two people late Friday afternoon, according to a local and trustworthy news source in Dixon. The accident that apparently transpired between Fry Road and Hay Road took place at approximately 5:00 p.m.
A report filed by the California Highway Patrol stated that the male driver of a gray Mini Cooper was heading north on Highway 113 at an excessively high rate of speed when his vehicle allegedly began to veer off the roadway. The driver overcorrected the vehicle in an attempt to stay in his lane but drifted over into the oncoming lane as a result. The Mini Cooper then proceeded to collide head-on with a gray Kia SUV.
Emergency responders arrived immediately in order to attend to the victims. However, both the male driver of the Mini Cooper and the female driver of the SUV were unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol reportedly had to close down the highway due to the fatal collision. The names of the victims are being withheld until family members can be notified, and the cause of this accident is currently under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences and most heartfelt prayers to the family members of the victims during this devastating time.
California Car Accident and Wrongful Death
At this time, the driver of the Mini Cooper is allegedly assuming liability as he was reported to have been excessively speeding and swerved into the path of the SUV. However, all factors must be analyzed before a proper and definitive conclusion can be reached.
Depending on the irrefutable findings of the investigation, there will likely be a wrongful death claim available to family members. Although, the decision to file a claim for compensation is a personal one that may only be made by those who were affected by this accident.
