An inattentive driver may be the cause of a multi -car injury accident on the freeway in Grass Valley Saturday. CHP Officer Greg Tassone tells KNCO that the series of events began with traffic slowing for some reason on eastbound 49/20 between the East Bennett Street on-ramp and the Idaho Maryland exit.
As traffic began to slow, the driver of the third vehicle did not.
The driver in the CRV was a 90 year old male.
The accident remains under investigation but preliminary investigation shows driver error.
Tassone says that the driver swerving maneuver created a worse collision than if she had just maintained straight inline braking.
