The accident happened around 2:52 pm on Union Road near Lathrop Road. A 2011 Hyundai was heading northbound on Union Road, near Lathrop Road. The Hyundai was driving at a high rate of speed when it began to drift off the right shoulder. The driver overcorrected and veered into the southbound lanes and into the path of an oncoming 2004 Toyota, hitting it head-on.
The impact sheared the Hyundai almost in half, ejecting two people. Both were tragically killed as a result of the accident. The driver of the Toyota sustained major injuries and was hospitalized. The accident remains under investigation at this time to determine cause and liability, and Lexton Law is still receiving updates at this time.
