ESCALON, CALIFORNIA (WeEscalon) – California Highway Patrol, Escalon Fire Department and ambulance services from Manteca, and Escalon responded to a call of a major crash Wednesday morning that injured two drivers. A Manteca motorcycle officer on his way to work was the first on scene.

The crash happened on Highway 120 and Van Allen Road. The vehicles ended up crashing right though the fence in the front of Van Allen School, just missing the school sign and trees.  

The accident occurred before the children had arrived to school and no one on the school grounds was injured. 

Multiple witnesses stated that the Grey Jeep was traveling northbound on Van Allen Road at a high rate of speed, jumped the railroad tracks and blew right though the stop sign at Highway 120 before colliding into the eastbound Black Camaro on Highway 120. The impact of the crash caused major damage to both vehicles and damaged the chainlink fence in front of the school.

Both victims of the accident were transported by ambulance to nearby hospitals with what appeared to be moderate to major injuries.

There were some traffic delays in the area due to the accident and debris in the roadway.  

California Highway Patrol Officers along with McDowell and Davis Tow Services were able to clear the accident scene quickly.
