Devastating crash leaves00one teen probably paralyzed A devastating two car crash on Chianti Road, involving several Cloverdale teens, has left one young man paralyzed from the waist down. The accident occurred last Thursday Dec. 4 at 3:45 p.m. on Chianti Road, north of Canyon Road, the frontage road adjacent to Hwy. 101. The accident involved a 1988 Ford Escort with four teens in the car, and a 1994 Taurus, also with four teenagers inside. Apparent- ly the youths knew one another and were both heading out to a spot on Chiarti Road, to hang out after school, according to Califor- nia Highway Patrol Officer, Wayne Ziese. The accident happened when the driver of the Ford Escort, a 17- year,old Geyserville boy, slowed to turn left off of Chianti Road. The 17-year-old driver of the Taurus, listed as a Cloverdale res- ident, was following the Escort at a high rate of speed, according to the CHP. The Taurus came over a rise and after seeing the Escort, which had slowed for the turn, the driver applied the brakes, be- gan skidding and started to pass in the opposing lane just as the Escort driver turned left. What followed was a front end impact that was so violent that it propelled the engine out of the Escort, sending it into the freeway fence, finally coming to a stop on U.S. 101, according to Ziese. The force was so violent it eject- ed three kids out of the Escort, while the Taurus overturned and slid to a stop upside down. The names of the minor drivers of both cars are lot being released because there is a possibility they may be prosecuted for Reckless Driving with Injury, which is a potential felony charge. The 17-year-old driver of the Escort had moderate to serious injuries. His passenger, Estanis- lao Nava, Geyserville, is reported to have a fractured neck and may be paralyzed from the waist down. He was airlifted to Memorial Hospital inSanta Rosa by REACH Air Ambulance. Two other youths in the car, Gustavo Lepe and Jared Spald- ing, both 17 and from Geyserville were transported to Memorial Hospital and suffered minor inju- ries including cuts and lacerations. The driver of the Taurus, a 17- year-old Cloverdale teen suffered minor injuries and was transport- ed to Sutter Medical Center in Santa Rosa. Other students in the car, 15-year-old Adrian Espitia, of Cloverdale was treated and released at Healdsburg; John Seg- er, 16, of Geyserville was treated and released at Healdsburg Hos- pital, and Chris Godoy, also a 15- year-old Cloverdale boy was treated and released at Healds- burg hospital with minor injuries. The investigation is still under- way and no charges have been filed. "We are continuing to piece together how this all went down," noted Officer Ziese. He also commented that Nava is the second teen in Sonoma County to be paralyzed from a car accident within the last month. Ziese mentioned that hopefully a new law that goes into effect Jan. 1 may help curb some of these senseless teen accidents caused by reckless driving and excessive speed. The law stipulates that new 16-year-old drivers will not be allowed to transport friends in their car for the first six months of their license. Exceptions will be made for school or church events, but for the most part, it will be a violation for a first-time driver to have his friends as passengers. "Hopefully this will cut down on some of these accidents. A lot of times teens won't act recklessly if they are alone because they aren't trying to impress anyone," the officer noted. 1998 Project Graduation Bulletin John McMillian Tournament starts Thursday, December 11 and runs through Saturday, Dec. 13.
