According to a recent press release from the California Highway Patrol, there was a car accident on Sunday in which driver Jose Homen crashed into another vehicle on State Route 101 near Airport Road, causing four people to suffer major injuries.
As mentioned in the article, the accident occurred at about 10:34 a.m. when 88-year-old Jose Homen of Arcata, driving a 1992 Chevrolet 1500 pickup on the southbound US-101 attempted to cross into Airport Road.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Amber Parcher, a Bakersfield resident, was driving a 2016 Hyundai Sonata northbound on Highway 101, at about 50 miles per hour in the No. 1 lane, approaching the intersection with Airport Road. As Parcher drove into the intersection, Homen also entered the northbound lanes to get to Airport Road, the article said.
What followed was a crash between the two vehicles, with the front of the Hyundai smashed into the right front end of the Chevrolet pickup.
Additionally, after the initial collision, the pickup truck spun around and Homen was ejected from his vehicle. The Hyundai also spun around and came to rest facing the wrong way in the northbound lane of the highway.
As a result, Homen reportedly suffered major injuries and paramedics transported to St. Joseph Hospital for medical treatment. Furthermore, Parcher along with two passengers also sustained minor injuries. Paramedics transported them to Mad River Community Hospital for medical treatment.
