Details of the Accident
According to the ongoing investigation, the 2015 model Camaro was traveling west on Bell Road when the driver, who is yet to be identified, failed to negotiate a sharp curve. As a result, the Camaro veered into the oncoming traffic lane and collided with the 2012 model 4-Runner.
