Highway 46/Blood Alley Fatal Accidents October 23 and October 28

On October 28 there was a deadly crash on Highway 46 also known as Blood Alley. This was the second fatal crash in a week's time. The crash on October 28 was east of Wasco near Wildwood Road. The crash occurred when a car was trying to pass others on a two-lane stretch of road. Passing on a two-lane road can be very dangerous if there is not proper visibility. In this instance a Toyota with 3 people was trying to pass a motor home. When the driver of the Toyota realized he did not have enough room to pass it was too late. The Toyota tried to get back into the right lane, but it instead hit a flat bed truck when it lost control. Officers claim that unsafe driving practices, rather than road conditions were to blame for the crash. The 19-year-old male driver of the Toyota and two female passengers were killed. The driver of the flat bad truck was treated for moderate injuries.Previously, on October 23 there was a similar accident also on Highway 46. This accident occurred east of Highway 33, near Blackwell's Corner. Once again a car was attempting to pass another on a two-lane stretch of road. A Chevrolet with a man, woman, and infant tried to pass several trucks. The Chevrolet struck a Toyota Prius with two people. The man in the Chevrolet and the infant passenger were killed along with a man and woman in the Prius.While both accidents are considered tragic, officers have stated that unsafe driving, not road conditions, was to blame for both accidents. If you or a friend or family member were involved in either of these accidents please contact us for a free consultation. /

Head-on collision investigation

October 23, 2009--The recent head-on collision on Highway 46 near Lost Hills in Kern County raises more questions than answers.  Unfortunately the CHP multi-disciplinary accident investigation team (MAIT) report will not likely be completed for several months.  Issues include the roadway design, the speeds of all involved vehicles, including the big rigs that were being passed, lighting and dust or fog issues  and obstructions to visibility or line of sight.  Under normal circumstances, assuming drugs or alcohol were not involved, the combination of the negligence two or more parties may contribute to a collision.

Highway 46 Crash near Lost Hills

October 23, 2009--Another Highway 46 fatality occurred Friday which took the lives of a baby and 3 adults.  A blue Chevy Cavalier was passing 2 big rigs when it ran out of room and swerved to the shoulder just as a Toyota Prius also headed for the dirt.  A major head-on collision resulted.10 years ago a Toyota Lexus hydroplaned in the rain on Highway 46 and veered into oncoming traffic.  6 deaths and other major injuries resulted.  The driver of the Lexus had been heading to the family cabin in Cambria and that particular stretch of roadway was slanted such that water pooled and thereby contributed to the accident.  The law firm of Nelson & Rozier was able to establish that Cal Trans knew of the roadway defect and cause them to contribute to settlement.  This came only after extensive records were produced by Cal Trans at their regional construction offices in San Luis Obispo.  If you would like us to investigate this accident please call Attorney John Rozier at 559-713-0159.
