Four People Injured in High Speed Collision on 99W at Orangewood
CORNING, CA (Map): Four people were injured in a high speed collision that occurred at about 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday on the 99W at Orangewood Road. Three of the four people involved were severely injured in the accident. The CHP responded to a report of the collision where the driver of a 2012 Mercedes Benz, Edgar Valencia, rear-ended a 2001 Dodge being driven by Elfego Haroacevedo.
Valencia had been traveling at 90 mph when he rear-ended the Dodge. Both vehicles were traveling south on 99W north of Orangewood Road when they collided (Haroacevedo was in front going about 50 mph when he was rear-ended).
The force of the rear-end impact caused the Mercedes to veer out of control, leaving the road’s edge, spin out of control and finally come to rest on its wheels. Meanwhile the Dodge went off the west road edge, rolled over and hit a fence, and then landed on its wheels. Haroacevedo had to be transported to Enloe Medical Center in Chico with minor injuries while the passengers traveling in his vehicle, Arturo Rivera, 37, and Abran Gutierrez, 42, sustained major injuries and also had to be transported to Enloe. Meanwhile, Valencia was not wearing a seat belt and sustained massive trauma injuries.
“Police will gather evidence and conduct interviews with the drivers and witnesses to determine liability” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm. “Any injured party involved in an accident will have a bodily injury claim against the negligent driver who caused the accident.”
