Accident can happen anytime. However, head-on collisions are often among the worst. Today, a head-on collision occurred on Sierra Highway in Santa Clarita. The impact has sent two people to Antelope Valley Hospital. From early reports, a white Honda collided with another white sedan of some sort at approximately 1:19 p.m. near Sierra Highway, just north of the Halfway House Cafe.
Officer Christian Cracraft of the California Highway Patrol said major life threatening injuries were sustained in the crash. As of this writing, it wasn’t immediately known if the drivers were the only occupants of the vehicles. Cracraft believed but could not be certain that it was the drivers of each vehicle who were taken to the hospital.
Head-on collisions can occur when one driver tries to go around traffic, mistakenly enters oncoming traffic, loses control of a vehicle, is busy texting, otherwise not paying attention, or drinking and driving among other reasons. I extend my thoughts to the families of all involved. We shall have to wait and see what this investigation reveals.
