Roseville Multi Vehicle Collision


Roseville Multi Vehicle Collision

I’m Ed Smith, a Roseville personal injury lawyer. A seven-vehicle collision occurred at a busy intersection in Roseville during the afternoon hours of Monday, February 13, 2017. Unfortunately, five people including a hit-and-run driver suffered traumatic injuries from the crash.

What Happened?

A deputy from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department observed two motorists arguing on Cirby Way in the vicinity of Vernon Street. One of the drivers indicated that the woman driving in her RV crashed into their vehicle. The deputy then asked both of the drivers to pull over and exchange information. One of the drivers complied with the deputy’s request, however, the woman driving in the RV did not and drove away from the scene.

Hit-and-Run Driver Causes Multi Vehicle Collision

The deputy began to follow the woman in the RV to obtain her vehicle license plate. However, the incident later escalated to a high speed pursuit. The woman was evading the deputy by traveling at a high rate of speed and running red light signals along the way. When the woman approached the intersection of Baseline Road and Fiddyment Road, she crashed her RV into other vehicles. Upon impact, the woman’s RV flipped over on its side and caught fire. Thankfully, authorities and bystanders were able to remove the woman from her burning RV.

Were They Okay?

Unfortunately, the crash caused five people including the RV driver to suffer minor to moderate injuries. They were all transported to local hospitals for treatment.
