Double Fatal Car Crash Shuts Down Highway 140 Near Yosemite

April 06, 2016

Yosemite National Park: Two people killed in head on collision after driver crosses lane into on-coming traffic.

The double-fatal car accident occurred around 1:15 p.m, on Highway 140 in Mariposa County. CHP Investigators have ruled that the 2011 Honda CRV crossed over into on-coming traffic, plowing into the 1996 Dodge Caravan. According to Mariposa County CHP, the driver and passenger of the Honda CRV, a 47-year-old female and 56-year-old male, were pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger from the Dodge Caravan, Tim Todd Hartley, was airlifted to nearby Modesto’s Doctor’s Medical Center and suffered a hip fracture.

Wreckage from the accident blocked all lanes, causing the highway to be closed, and traffic re-routed for nearly 2 1/2 hours while emergency crews worked to free the trapped victims. CHP reopened the highway close to 5pm.

Names of the deceased were not immediately released, nor whether alcohol or drugs may be involved. Vince Roeber, CHP spokesman says the investigation into the fatal crash is on-going.
