Victoria Newman involved in a deadly car crash on ‘The Young and the Restless’

2022 isn’t shaping up to be a good year for Victoria on The Young and the Restless. Her world was shattered when she discovered Ashland lied about his illness. Victoria’s family rallied around her as she contemplated her next move. While Victor and Nikki Newman (Eric Braeden and Melody Thomas Scott) encouraged her to dump Ashland, Victoria was hesitant.

Victoria still loves Ashland; however, the feeling isn’t mutual. Ashland signs Adam Newman’s (Mark Grossman) deal of $500 million in exchange for an annulment. After confronting Ashland about his lies, Victoria drives off.

However, Victoria’s ride takes a dangerous turn. According to Soaps.com, Victoria is in a car crash that will have tragic results.

Victoria Newman’s life hangs in the balance

Car crashes often lead to tragedy on The Young and the Restless. Who could forget Cassie Newman (Camryn Grimes) succumbing to her injuries following a car accident? 

So will Victoria face a similar fate?

This week’s promo doesn’t look promising for Victoria. The Newman heiress is emotional while driving and talking with her mother on the phone. Suddenly headlights from another car appear before Victoria screams and swerves off the road. 

The next scene shows Victoria’s car crashing into a tree. As flames rise from the hood, Victoria is unconscious in the driver’s seat. The situation looks dire for Victoria, who may perish in the fire.

More fatalities from the crash

The Young and the Restless fans are worried about Victoria’s fate. Although it looks like this may be the end, viewers know she’s not going to die. Victoria is an essential part of the show, and the writers aren’t going to kill Victor and Nikki’s daughter. 

Help will come to Victoria in the Nick of time. While Victoria will escape with minor injuries, the same can’t be said for the other driver. 

Speculation is that Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) was in the other car. Rey was on his way home to grab tickets for a hockey game. Yet, his plans for a fun night with Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) and Connor Newman (Judah Mackey) are altered. 

Viewers know Rey’s days are numbered since Vilasuso is leaving. Victoria’s car crash appears to be how he’s written off. Rey’s car might have crashed while trying to avoid a collision, and the impact led to life-threatening injuries.

While that seems likely, Rey could also go out as a hero. Perhaps Rey comes upon Victoria’s accident and pulls her out of the car. Yet, he ends up dying in the car explosion. 

Victoria’s accident will change her and other people’s lives.
