A woman was injured in an Orange County car accident that police report was caused by a driver failing to yield to oncoming traffic. According to a news report in The Orange County Register, the injury car accident occurred at the intersection of Lemon Street and Berkeley Avenue in Fullerton the afternoon of November 15, 2010. A Honda Civic failed to yield right-of-way at the intersection and struck a GMC Yukon causing it to overturn. The female driver of the Yukon was hospitalized for her injuries after being extricated from her vehicle. This car accident remains under investigation.
My thoughts and prayers are with the woman injured in this rollover accident. I wish her a swift and complete recovery from her injuries.
