Four people were injured in a pair of unrelated traffic accidents on Imperial Valley highways Friday.
According to a California Highway Patrol press release, shortly before 8 a.m. Jesus Garcia, 41, of Brawley attempted to change lanes as he was southbound on Highway 86 just north of Keystone Road when he realized there was a car in his blind spot.
Garcia overcorrected his steering first by turning too hard to the left and then again to the right. His car skidded and sideswiped the left side of the car he'd been trying to avoid.
That car, driven by 21-year-old Christina Garcia of El Centro, was forced onto the west dirt shoulder, where it struck a sign.
