Wrong Way Driver Kills West Sacramento Man
I’m Ed Smith, a West Sacramento personal injury lawyer. A wrong-way motorist was driving along Interstate 80 in Sacramento during the evening hours of Tuesday, February 7, 2017. The negligent driver kept driving even after sideswiping one vehicle and eventually crashed head-on into an innocent victim.
A woman was behind the wheel of her Ford Mustang traveling west along the eastbound lanes of Interstate 80 at approximately 10:00 p.m. Due to the woman driving the wrong way on Interstate 80 eastbound, she sideswiped a Chevy Impala in the vicinity of Raley Boulevard. The woman continued to drive against the flow of eastbound oncoming traffic until she reached Northgate Boulevard. The woman then crashed head-on into a man driving a white Dodge Challenger.
What Caused the Accident?
The cause of the automobile accident has not been disclosed by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). It generally takes up to two weeks for a traffic collision report to be processed. CHP officers have not yet determined whether the female driver of the Ford Mustang was driving under the influence before the crash.
