Highway 46 rollover crash claims 2 lives, injures 2 others

The male driver of a Ford Expedition and his female passenger were killed after their car was struck by another and rolled over several times, ultimately ejecting one. The fatal accident occurred around 8:30 a.m., along State Route 46 in Paso Robles on Sunday morning, April 2, 2017.

Witnesses to the accident reported that driver of the Ford Expedition failed to stop at a red light at the intersection of Highway 46 West and Buena Vista Drive. A compact Honda sedan clipped the rear portion of the SUV within the intersection as it attempted to make a turn to go in the north direction.

Upon being clipped, the Expedition rolled several times within the highway before ultimately coming to rest within the eastbound portion of the highway. Both the female passenger, who was ejected from the SUV, and its male driver succumbed to their injuries as a result of the vehicle's rollover at the accident scene.

Both of the SUV's two other passengers, believed to have been visiting from Coalinga, and Honda's driver were taken by emergency personnel to San Luis Obispo's Sierra Vista Hospital to be treated for their injuries. A small dog, also riding in the SUV at the time of the fatal crash, was transported to an area veterinarian for treatment as well.

A preliminary investigation of the accident has ruled out suspected drug or alcohol use as being responsible for having caused the fatal car crash. An investigation involving multiple agencies is continuing though.

Vehicle rollovers resulting from pickup trucks or SUVs being clipped are not all that uncommon. If you have been seriously injured or lost a family member as the result of one, a Vista, California, wrongful death attorney can advise you as to your legal options.
