Six teens injured in I-5 collision

The California Highway Patrol said six teenagers were injured in a crash on Interstate 5 near Greenbay Road in Arbuckle. 

The incident happened, Wednesday, July 19 at about 6:30 AM. 

According the California Highway Patrol, Samuel Fishburn, 18, of Maple Valley, WA was traveling northbound on Interstate 5 and for unknown reasons allowed his vehicle, a 2008 Jeep to enter the center median causing the vehicle to overturn. 

“In the process of overturning, a juvenile passenger was ejected,” said CHP Officer Franco Castillo in a Press Release. “The remaining occupants exited the vehicle on their own and awaited for medical personnel.”

The 17-year-old, male, who was ejected, was transported to UC Davis Medical Center for major injuries.

The driver, and three 17-year-old passengers, two males, and one female,  and John Meehan, 18, of Maple Valley, WA were transported to UC Davis Medical Center for various minor to moderate injuries.

The CHP said that three of the six occupants were not wearing their seatbelt, and the collision remains under investigation. 

“It does not appear that alcohol or drugs played a role in the collision at this time,” Castillo said. 

The CHP reminds the public of the importance of wearing a seatbelt. 

“Seatbelts save lives, and prevent injuries,” said Castillo. “ Do not put your life at risk, or the life of your family or friends.” ■
