Atwater, CA – 19-Year-Old Uziel Martinez Injured in Fatal Head-On Collision

Atwater, CA (January 13, 2019) On the 10th of January, a fatal head-on collision took place at the intersection of Shaffer Road and Palm Avenue. According to the reports, 19-year-old Uziel Martinez was driving a 2007 GMC Yukon on Shaffer Road when he moved into the southbound lane and tried to pass a Jeep Grand Cherokee. However, Martinez ended up crashing head-on into a Toyota Camry instead.

When emergency crews arrived at the scene, they found several people suffering from injuries. Martinez, the 43-year-old driver of the GMC Yukon, and two of his passengers were all transported to a local Modesto hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. Unfortunately, the driver of the Toyota suffered fatal injuries.

No further information has released regarding this accident. The police are currently conducting a thorough investigation to determine causation and liability.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences the family of the deceased accident victim.  Our thoughts are with them as they begin the grieving process. We hope that all of the other injured victims will be able to make full recoveries from the injuries sustained in this accident.

Head-On Collisions in California

Most head-on collisions happen during night hours and can result from too much alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, poorly lit roads, or mechanical errors. Because the force of impact is twice as intense, fatalities often result from these types of collisions.

The police are working on determining what led up to the crash and who will be held responsible for damages and losses. Once they’ve completed their reports, it’s likely that a wrongful death lawsuit and multiple personal injury lawsuits will get filed with the help of a California attorney.
