Brawley woman hurt in head-on collision southeast of Imperial

June 30, 2001

IMPERIAL — A Brawley woman suffered minor injuries in a head-on collision at Dogwood Road south of Aten Road east of here Friday.

The accident occurred as Andy Villagrama, 19, of El Centro was driving south on Dogwood Road behind a slow-moving tractor-trailer rig, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

Villagrama steered into the northbound lane to pass the truck without sufficient clearance from approaching traffic, the report states.

Maria Arellano, 35, of Brawley, traveling north on Dogwood, slowed and pulled to the shoulder in an effort to avoid colliding with Villagrama's oncoming vehicle.

However, Villagrama took the same evasive action, and both vehicles struck head-on in the dirt shoulder.

Arellano suffered minor injuries to her left shoulder and left knee and was transported to El Centro Regional Medical Center.

A hospital spokesman said Saturday the hospital had no record of whether Arellano was treated at the hospital.
