E. Clarke Moseley, publisher of the Mid Valley News, is recuperating after being involved in a serious car accident on his way to Paso Robles approximately 3 weeks ago on Highway 46 east of Shandon. According to the Paseo Robles Daily News, “At about 9:00 a.m., CHP responded to an accident on the highway just east of Highway 41. A black Volkswagen Jetta driven by Elizabeth Turner, 24, of Salinas, traveled into oncoming traffic to perform a passing maneuver without sufficient clearance to safely negotiate the pass, CHP reports. As a result, she collided head on with a gray 2014 Ford Escape, driven by E. Clarke Moseley, of El Monte, who was traveling westbound. After the collision, the Ford Escape continued off the north roadway edge across the dirt shoulder and down an embankment. The Jetta traveled back into the eastbound traffic lane where it collided with the right side of a 2013 Peterbuilt truck, driven by Roy Bishop, Jr., 49, of Bluefield, VA.”
Clarke ended up with a severely shattered left leg and multiple bruises. He “was transported via CHP Air Rescue to Sierra Vista Hospital for treatment of his injuries. The cause of the collision is currently still under investigation.”
Some of the Mid Valley News staff visited Clarke in a rehab center in San Luis Obispo. He has undergone extensive leg surgery and is recuperating and undergoing physical therapy.
We send our prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery to our boss, Clarke. We all miss you and can’t wait to see you back at the paper.
Readers that would like to offer Clarke their best wishes can send them in c/o the Mid Valley News.
