Salinas, CA- Woman Seriously Injured In A Wreckless Driving Crash Along The Intersection Of Natividad Road And Los Coches Avenue
A 54-year old woman was seriously injured after being ejected from a truck struck by another vehicle being driven by a driver who ran a red light on Friday, June 14, 2019, in Salinas, CA. The crash occurred around 6:15 pm along the intersection of Natividad Road and Los Coches Avenue. The truck was a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado pick up. The said vehicle was found tipped on its side on the road. The female passenger in the vehicle, identified as Filomena Ruelas, was ejected from the truck. The truck was travelling west on Los Coches Avenue and stopped for a red light on the Natividad intersection. A 29-year old woman was reportedly driving the truck. Ruelas and a 26-year old man were passengers of the truck. When the light turned green, the truck turned left, heading south on Natividad Road. However, 19-year old Christian Reyes, driving a 1994 Honda Accord, drove north on Natividad into a yellow light turning red. As such, the Honda Accord broadsided the truck. The force of the collision caused Ruelas to be ejected from the truck. The truck was also turned from its side, spinning it around in the process, during the collision. The other 3 people involved in the crash were also injured. As of Monday, June 17, 2019, Ruelas remained in critical condition. Meanwhile, Reyes was charged with reckless driving.
