The Subaru then crossed over the double yellow line and struck a westbound Ford F-150 driven by Richard Fautt. As a result of the collision, the Legacy flipped onto its roof.
Richard Fautt and Sandra Fautt suffered minor injuries. Yoder was taken to Doctor’s Medical Center with major injuries.
Alcohol or drugs were not considered a factor in the accident.
The CHP is investigating the crash.
According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary so as clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
