Woman Medevacked After Being Struck by Vehicle
On December 2, 2018, at approximately 5:28 PM, Trina Amore (P#2) was walking across SR-3 to Wileys Market in Hayfork , just prior to the start of the Hayfork Christmas Parade. Abdul-Latif (P#1) from Houston Texas was traveling in his 2015 Nissan Altima, northbound on SR-3 at a stated speed of 30 mph. As Amore was walking across the double yellow lines into the northbound lane, Abdul-Latif suddenly observed Amore and abruptly applied his vehicles brakes, steering to the left in an attempt to avoid a collision with Amore. This attempt was not successful as the right front of Abdul-Latif’s vehicle struck Amore, causing Amore’s right leg and hip to impact the front of the vehicle. Amore was thrown up onto the vehicle, at which time, Amore’s head impacted the right lower corner of the windshield. Amore then fell to the roadway surface. After the collision, Abdul-Latif immediately pulled his vehicle to the right shoulder and began to render aid to Amore until Fire and Ambulance personnel arrived. Amore was subsequently transported to the Hayfork Airport by TCLS, then transfered to Reach 5 helicopter, before being flown to Mercy Medical Center.
