A motor home struck by a pickup in Paso Robles kills a mom

A 37-year-old San Jose woman died, and her 14-year-old son was severely injured, on Thursday, April 20, 2017. The accident occurred when her motor home was struck by a pickup traveling near the intersection of Highways 41 and 46 near Paso Robles. The woman and the male teen were both ejected from the motor home when it came in contact with the truck.

The fatal crash, which occurred at the intersection commonly known as Cholame "Y," occurred around 2:50 p.m. The decedent's male companion and injured teen's father was at the wheel driving eastbound on Highway 46.

As he attempted to turn north onto Highway 41, a 2013 Chevrolet pickup attempted to veer right to avoid striking the 2003 Itasca motor home, but failed to do so. He clipped the motor home's front right corner in the process.

None of the motor home's occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash except for the driver. It appears that the other occupants might have been seated in the rear portion of the motor home unrestrained when the accident occurred.

Drugs or alcohol are not suspected to have played any role in causing this accident. The investigation into the cause of the accident is still being determined.

Accidents that are so powerful that they eject the occupants of a vehicle are not all that uncommon. If you've lost a loved one, or know someone who has suffered permanent injuries as a result of their involvement in a crash like this, a Vista, California car accident attorney can advise you in your legal matter.
