CHP was made aware of an accident on the Northbound 99 near the Olive Avenue off ramp. Original reports indicated that a solo car had gone off the road and down the embankment into a tree, however CHP have now discovered that a second car was involved. A while Ford minivan was found to have pulled over and was waiting on the scene. The car that went down the embankment was a dark grey Honda Accord or Nissan. The vehicle is believed to have struck a tree.
Car vs tree accidents can be fatal. While the force from a car on car accident is reduced by the give of both vehicles, when a car hits a tree, there is no give. The force of the impact is much greater on a body. Injuries are almost guaranteed to occur. Don’t be fooled by not immediately feeling pain, it is important to get treatment right away to prevent long term effects from the accident.
