Construction Worker Struck, Injured by Car at Yuba Street
REDDING, CA (June 30, 2021) — A construction worker was hit and injured by a car at Yuba Street and California Street Monday afternoon.
According to the Redding Police Department, the accident happened around 1:33 p.m. Under circumstances that require more investigation, a 39-year-old woman in a Toyota Camry made a left turn onto California Street from Yuba Street. However, she had made the turn without knowing that the portion of the street was tailored to southbound traffic only.
As a result, she tried steering out of the way, yet crashed through a chain-link fence and struck a 57-year-old construction worker. Following the accident, emergency personnel responded and freed the worker from between the Camry and a utility trench.
At this time, the accident requires more examination, and the victim remains in serious condition at Mercy Medical Center. Although, if anyone has more information, please contact the Redding Police.
