LINDA, CA (February 25, 2021) – An unborn child died in a DUI accident early Tuesday morning on Hammonton Smartsville Road.
The accident happened just before 5:00 a.m., February 23 near Happy Way. CHP officials said 44-year-old Anthony Smith of Marysville was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe at approximately 45 mph. For unknown reasons, he crossed into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a 2005 Toyota 4Runner.
