Four People Killed, Others Injured in Severe Two-Car Collision

Authorities are continuing to investigate a fatal two-vehicle crash that happened recently on Highway 99. Four men in a sedan were heading west on Oswald Road when they approached an intersection with Highway 99. Vehicles on the highway have right of way and there is a stop sign for those traveling on Oswald. The sedan with the four men pulled out onto the highway and was struck by a Mercedes sedan being driven by a Chico man. The Mercedes was southbound on the 99 and T-boned the other sedan. The impact of the Mercedes at highway speed on the other sedan's passenger side doors caused the westbound sedan to spin out and then hit a light pole before coming to a rest in the roadside ditch. A passenger in the back seat who wasn't wearing a seatbelt was ejected from the car. The Mercedes veered partly off the road into a ditch as well before coming to a stop. Paramedics and other authorities arrived at the crash location where all four men who were in the westbound sedan were pronounced dead at the scene. The 23-year-old driver of the Mercedes suffered serious injuries and was rushed to the hospital. The man's three female passengers, ages 25 to 30, received minor injuries and were treated and released from a different hospital. Investigators are trying to determine if the westbound sedan failed to stop before crossing the 99 or if there was some other circumstances that led to the tragic accident. Neither speed nor intoxication is suspected to be a factor. If you were hurt in a car accident caused by someone else's negligence or recklessness then you need the help of a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
