Woman and 16-year-old Girl Killed in Mendota Accident- August 9, 2016

A blown tire caused the death of two and injuries of five others in a Monday, August 8th car accident. The accident happened on I5, just west of Mendota, at 9:20 am, according to the California Highway Patrol. The two victim’s names are being withheld pending familial notification. Both were Los Angeles residents and not wearing a seatbelt. The SUV they were in was a 2003 Ford Expedition. It turned over on I5, a short way from California Avenue to the south.  They were ejected. The other 5 passengers all had on their seatbelts and received minor to moderate injuries. 

The driver was an 18-year-old male. He lost control of the car after the right rear tire blew, and it drifted across southbound lanes where it overturned. Alcohol nor drugs were a factor.
