Mariposa County, CA – Harold Treadway Injured in Head-On Collision on Highway 49
Mariposa County, CA (January 30, 2019) On the afternoon of January 29th, a fatal head-on collision happened along Highway 49 at around 1:00 p.m., just north of Wass Road. According to the reports, a 64-year-old man named Harold S. Treadway was driving a Volvo 3-axle truck north on the highway simultaneously as a 2014 Subaru Forester was traveling south. When Treadway approached a left-hand curve, the Subaru somehow ended up in the oncoming lanes and crashed into Volvo truck.
When emergency crews arrived to help, they found Treadway suffering from moderate injuries and transported him to John C. Fremont hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, the 83-year-old driver of the Subaru suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash.
The police are currently investigating this accident to determine causation and liability.
We send our condolences to the deceased driver’s family as we know it’s never easy to lose a loved one in a vehicle accident. We also hope Treadway fully recovers from all of his injuries.
Head-On Collisions in California
Studies show that 10 percent of all fatal collisions are head-on collisions, which are caused by negligent driving by at least one of the parties involved. The police are currently investigating this accident to determine what caused the Subaru to veer into the opposite lane. They’re inspecting the Subaru for any malfunctioning auto parts or mechanical errors. They’re also checking road conditions, and whether drugs or alcohol played a role.
Once they finalize their reports, the deceased driver’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit with the help of a California wrongful death attorney. Treadway may also be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to retrieve compensation for medical expenses, vehicle damage, and more.
