Watsonville, CA (July 05, 2020) – Four people sustained injuries during a rear-end collision on Friday, July 3rd.
The accident took place at around 1:00 p.m. on Highway 1, a little south of Harkins Slough when a piece of broken farming equipment being towed by a truck sparked and caught fire, causing the truck to stop unexpectedly, which resulted in the three vehicles behind the truck to stop as well.
The rear vehicle, a van, failed to stop, inciting a chain-reaction accident along the highway.
Four people were injured during the collision. Two of the victims were listed in serious condition and the other two were listed as moderate. All were transported via ambulances to various hospitals for further treatment.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
