The driver of a car traveling southbound on U.S. 19 lost control of her vehicle and crossed into a northbound lane, striking and overturning another car on Oct. 22. The driver lost control after she attempted to merge to the left through lane, realized that another vehicle was in that lane and swerved to avoid a collision.
Police say that after swerving to avoid the collision, the vehicle traveled through the median and into the northbound lanes into the path of another vehicle. That other vehicle overturned multiple times, causing severe injuries to that driver's hand. Officials transported the driver to a local hospital for treatment of the injuries.
