A 44-year-old man identified as Cristian S. was hurt after a two-vehicle traffic collision in Paso Robles on Monday morning, September 20.
The collision took place at the intersection of Highway 46 and Jardine Road in Paso Robles at approximately 5:40 a.m.
A 2019 Volkswagen MK VII was traveling westbound on Highway 46 when a 2019 Freightliner pulled out directly in front of the Volkswagen. Unfortunately, the Volkswagen driver could not avoid the Freightliner successfully and crashed into the truck’s trailer.
The 2019 Freightliner initially attempted to make a left turn onto eastbound Highway 46 before the collision. Sanchez, who was driving the 2019 Volkswagen, was taken to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center to receive treatment.
No other injuries were reported. Drugs and alcohol were not considered as factors in the collision. Local authorities are further investigating the case.

California is partially known for having some of the busiest and busiest highways in the country. Car accidents are one of California’s leading injury death factors. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that in 2017 more than 3,304 fatal accidents occurred in California. Neglect, recklessness, and the violation of the law are some of the main reasons why car accidents happen. Attention to the road, the skill behind the wheel, and proper vehicle maintenance can reduce the risk of collision.
