Officials say a husband and wife were injured in a two-vehicle collision near Los Banos Monday evening.
According to California Highway Patrol, 37-year-old Solomon Smith of Hollywood was traveling in his 2005 Jeep sport-utility vehicle near the intersection of Interstate 5 and California State Route 165 around 5:15 p.m. when he lost control for unknown reasons, drove into the median, and flipped his vehicle multiple times. The impact caused debris from the crash to strike the 2013 BMW driven by 31-year-old Todd Schram of Miami.
Mr. Smith’s wife, 40-year-old Lynette King-Smith of Hollywood, was transported to Memorial Hospital Los Banos with serious injuries. Mr. Smith sustained minor injuries.
Mr. Schram was not hurt.
Officials are conducting an ongoing investigation to determine the cause of this incident.
Seeing a copy of the California accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about California Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An California accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
