Car Crash Kills Rancho Cordova Man
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the man was driving along a transition road that connects southbound Highway 5 to eastbound I-80 just before 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 28, 2015. As he approached the on ramp to Interstate 80, he lost control of his vehicle. His car then hit a traffic sign and careened down an embankment. It came to rest up against a tree at the driver’s side door. The man, who wasn’t wearing his seat belt, sustained fatal injuries as a result of the impact.
In some solo traffic accidents there may have been a phantom vehicle involved. Sometimes a hit-and-run situation may have occurred where the driver did not stop because he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol or perhaps he was texting. It takes the trained eye of an experienced auto accident attorney to determine if this situation exists. Sometimes an officer responding to a traffic collision fails to uncover important evidence that reveals another vehicle may have been involved. In these instances, a traffic collision report may even be wrong.
