The accident happened around 3:32 am in the southbound lanes near Bird Avenue. A woman in a Volkswagen Golf was driving the wrong way in the southbound lanes, and hit a red Chevrolet Aveo head on in the center lanes, causing the Aveo to spin out, crash into the median, and rollover onto its roof. The Golf spun as well as a result of the impact and finally stopped, then was rear ended by a BMW sedan.
A woman that was traveling inside the Aveo was rushed to a hospital with serious injuries, and the driver of the Golf was also rushed to a nearby hospital with major injuries. The driver of the BMW was not hurt. The driver of the Golf is suspected to have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident, and authorities are continuing to investigate.
“It’s unfortunate that motorists under the influence disregard the negative effects that may ensue from driving under the influence. Drunk drivers continue to endanger the safety of all other drivers,” said a California car accident and personal injury attorney.
