A fatal car accident occurred on Alisal Road on Tuesday morning. A 2003 Nissan was driving southbound on the road while a 1999 Dodge was driving northbound on the same road. Amanda Bernal was driving the Dodge while Emilio Garrido was driving the dodge. Amanda had her four-year-old daughter in the car with her.
The crash began when Garrido started veering across the double yellow line, heading into northbound traffic. She collided with Amanda’s driver side door.
Garrido was severely injured during the crash. She complained of pain in her ribs, left shoulder, and her left leg. Emergency officials found Amanda and her daughter in worse condition.
Amanda had a laceration on her forehead, and she was immediately sent to Natividad Medical Center. Her child was airlifted to a children’s trauma center as a precaution. Unfortunately, Amanda died in the hospital due to blunt force trauma. Her child is okay.
Police in Salinas are currently investigating the crash. They have ruled out alcohol and drugs.
