• CHP Report: Collision with major injuries – Carmel Valley

    On 07/12/2018 at approximately 1940 hours, a brown Pathfinder, driven by Margot McNally was traveling WB on Carmel Valley Rd E of Country Club Dr. Due to McNally’s high rate of speed and alcohol impairment she was unable to safely negotiate a curve in the roadway and crossed over the double yellow line onto the eastbound lane, directly into the path of a white GMC Suburban, being driven by a 69-yr-old female. After the collision both vehicles came to rest within the EB lane of Carmel Valley Rd and the GMC’s engine compartment caught fire. An off duty firefighter who arrived after the collision assisted the driver of the GMC to safety. McNally, her unconscious 16-yr-old passenger, who was not wearing her seatbelt and the driver of the GMC were transported to Natividad Medical Center. Alcohol was a contributing factor in this collision. We are working with Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) to determine where McNally and her passenger were able to obtain the alcohol. McNally’s passenger is currently in critical condition. McNally was placed under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol and causing great bodily injury. EB and WB Carmel Valley Rd were closed for approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes due to patient care, fluids in the roadway, vehicle recovery and the investigation.

    Reminder: Seatbelts save lives and driving impaired is 100% preventable.
