Three people sustain injuries in Highway 12 vehicular accident
Two individuals sustained life-threatening injuries while one person incurred minor wounds after a three-vehicle accident occurred on Highway 12 west of Potato Slough in the California Delta, according to the Lodi News-Sentinel on April 18.
According to the California Highway Patrol, 40-year-old Castro Valley resident Danny Baker was driving his 2003 Chevrolet with a camping trailer west down Highway 12 at around 7:25 p.m. when he began to attempt a U-turn toward the eastbound lanes. Baker said he failed to see the 2006 Hyundai and 2015 Nissan that were approaching despite checking his side mirrors, so he initiated the turn.
This caused 92-year-old Stockton resident Phillip Paige, the driver of the Hyundai, to crash into the left side of Baker’s vehicle while 53-year-old Spring Valley resident Lisa Williams crashed her Nissan into the left side of the camping trailer.
Paige and his passenger, 57-year-old Spring Valley resident Lawana Vanhook, sustained major injuries, while Williams incurred minor ones.
