2 Drivers Injured on Highway 101 Car Crash near Cloverdale

May 16th ─ two drivers were injured in a violent 2-car collision resulting in one vehicle being split in half. The incident took place at around 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, according to the CHP, Apol Lansang, 25-years old, of Sonoma, was driving her Impala south on Highway 101, near Geysers Road when she was struck by a northbound Sequoia driven by Kevin Fenty, 27-years old, of Huntington Beach, that drifted across the highway into Lansang’s lane splitting her car in two. Lansang’s entire passenger side went onto an embankment, while Fenty was ejected from his car. At first glance, it seemed the two-vehicle crash must have been fatal, but both victims suffered only minor to moderate injuries. The two were rushed to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for treatment.

An eye-witness told authorities, “it was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen many accidents”. Tom Bond, 70-year old, a former U.S. Air Force ambulance driver, who was on his way to a farm he owns when he saw smoke and debris. “It was unbelievable”, said Tom when questioned about the surviving motorists. 5 other vehicles, who had witnessed the collision, stopped to lend assistance to the injured victims. “The scene was, it was pretty intense,” said Sgt. Jason Bahlman, of the CHP, “It was definitely one of the most severely damaged cars I’ve ever seen.” The accident closed the 101 freeway for most of the morning, and reopened again in the afternoon.

The crash is still under investigation but drugs are believed to have been a factor.

Fenty was later arrested and has been charged with felony DUI with drugs causing great bodily injury, misdemeanor possession of more than 28.5 grams of marijuana and misdemeanor driver unlicensed.
