23-Year-Old Los Angeles County Woman Killed in Highway 101 Crash
GEYSERVILLE, CALIFORNIA - According to reporting from The Press Democrat, a 23-year-old Los Angeles County woman has been identified as the victim of last Friday’s deadly crash on Highway 101.
The Sonoma County Coroner's Office informed reporters that Ariana Salazar of El Monte, CA was killed in a crash after her vehicle crossed the median and struck a sedan head-on, and then collided with an oncoming pickup truck.
The two occupants of the pickup truck were transported to a local hospital with “moderate” injuries. Both occupants of the sedan were examined by emergency responders and released at the scene of the crash.
Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of motor vehicle accidents. A study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that while head-on collisions account for less than 2 percent of all auto accident, they are responsible for nearly 11 percent of all fatal wrecks.
As many as 4,000 people are killed in head-on collision in the United States each year, while many others suffer debilitating injuries.
This crash is still under active investigation by state and local law enforcement agencies. If you witnessed this accident or if you have any information that might be relevant, you are encouraged to contact the Santa Rosa Area California Highway Patrol.
