Our client, a 74 year old Merced County man, was driving with his wife on southbound Highway 99 in Turlock when he felt and heard an impact to his vehicle. The impact sent our client’s vehicle careening to the right and onto the shoulder of the highway before he was able to correct back onto the roadway. Upon entering back onto the asphalt roadway, our client over-corrected to the left, and his vehicle shot head-on into the left center median. After spinning out of control and colliding with the center median a second time, our client’s vehicle finally came to a rest in the middle of the highway more than 150 feet from where the initial impact occurred. Our client sustained multiple serious injuries, and required months of medical treatment following the collision.
