A Thermal woman died in a four-car crash in Mecca Saturday morning. The crash occurred around 7 a.m. on Grapefruit Boulevard just north of Fourth Street. According to Cal Fire, four vehicles crashed on the two-lane roadway. Authorities have not released further details about the collision.
1 Killed, 2 Injured in Four-Vehicle Crash
One woman involved in the crash, 31-year-old Nancy Zaragoza, died at the scene at 7:07 a.m. Two others suffered serious injuries in the four-car crash. They were taken to the hospital for treatment. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is handling the investigation.
Another multi-vehicle crash happened in Victorville Thursday night. One woman was injured in that accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that multi-vehicle crashes are some of the most dangerous crashes. Each additional vehicle involved in the crash adds more broken glass and metal to the scene, increasing the likelihood of injuries. More vehicles also increase the likelihood of a fuel spill, posing a greater risk of fire.
“We’re praying for the victim’s family and loved ones during this difficult time. We’re also hoping for a full recovery for those who suffered injuries in the accident,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
