Two people were killed, and another person was injured after a head-on traffic collision in Fernbrook, Ramona, on Wednesday afternoon, June 10th.
According to the initial reports from the local police, the crash occurred at around 12:15 p.m. A 2016 Ford Focus and a 2017 Subaru Impreza were involved.
A 56-year-old woman was driving the Ford Focus northbound on Mussey Grade Road when she suddenly lost control of her vehicle and drifted onto the southbound lane. She then crashed head-on into an oncoming 2017 Subaru Impreza.
The driver of the Ford and a passenger in the Subaru Impreza were pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Subaru sustained significant injuries and was immediately airlifted to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido.
Fatal Car Accident Investigation is Underway
Local authorities are currently further investigating the accident.
According to the statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 3,304 fatal car accidents in California in 2017. Although head-on collisions only represent 2 percent of accidents, they account for 10 percent of fatalities on U.S. roadways. These types of accidents are caused by a variety of reasons, such as distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver over-fatigue.
