Two female motorists and three juvenile passengers were transported taken to local medical centers following an automotive accident involving a Ford Expedition sport utility vehicle and a Riata Ranch pickup truck pulling a horse trailer recently north of Visalia at the intersection of Avenue 352 and Road 132. The collision overturned the empty horse trailer, which eventually came to rest on its side in an alfalfa field. Two of the injured children were transported in separate helicopters.
The California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement agents responded to the late morning accident. The Ford Expedition was moving westbound on Avenue 352 when she collided with the Riata Ranch Dodge truck, which was traveling southbound on Road 132. The female driver of the sport utility vehicle was transported by emergency vehicle to an area medical center for the treatment of injuries. The injured children were riding as passengers in her sport utility vehicle. The driver of the truck said she was returning from dropping off her horse at the veterinarian’s office. The driver did not complain of injuries, but a female passenger was transported to a medical center to be treated for back pain.
