ESCALON,CALIFORNIA – The collision occurred at 8:10 p.m. yesterday evening (11/01/17) on E. River Road just west of S. Brennan Road. Two units from the California Highway Patrol, engines from Escalon Fire Department and ambulance services from Escalon Community Ambulance responded to the accident. The accident involved a dark colored Mercedes sedan and two parked vehicles. The parked vehicles involved were a white full-size Ford pick-up truck and a white Ford Astro mini-van. California Highway Patrol is the primary investigating agency in this accident.

It was reported to the CHP Officers on scene that the driver of the Mercedes was traveling eastbound on E. River Road at a high rate of speed and possibly had a tire blowout just before the collision occurred. One witness that lives just a few homes west of the accident scene told the CHP Officers investigating the accident that he heard something like the sound of a tire blowing up just before the crash. The driver then lost control of the Mercedes leaving the roadway and hitting the parked vehicles along with a wooden fence in front of the home. There were automobile parts, automobile fluids and broken fence parts at the point of impact. CHP Officers on scene were still investigating the collision. The collision caused major damage to all three vehicles and the impact demolished the wooden fence in front of the home.

It was unclear if there was a second person inside the Mercedes, but at least one person from the car was treated by medical emergency technicians on scene, and transported to a nearby hospital with unknown minor injuries. It appeared no other vehicles had been involved in the crash. The airbags in the Mercedes did deploy. Speed and possibly a blown tire may have been the cause of this accident.
