Highway 138 experienced another accident. On March 11, 2015, a Toyota struck an SUV near Desert View Road causing injuries to at least one person. In this automobile accident, the SUV was struck from behind when it was making a left-hand turn. Apparently, the Toyota sedan did not see the car stopped on the highway. The magnitude of the collision sent both cars off the highway. The driver of the SUV was taken to a local hospital due to the injuries suffered.
Highway 138, like so many other narrow roadways that are heavily traveled, sees its share of traffic collisions. These collisions may be rear end accidents like this Phelan crash, they can be side impact accidents from someone improperly making a left-hand turn in front of oncoming traffic, they can be passing accidents which end up in frontal impacts. No matter how the accident occurred, these accidents often result in injuries, which can range from minor aches and pains to paraplegia or death of an individual.
