Elk Grove Fatal Motorcycle Collision
I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove wrongful death lawyer. A collision took place during the late morning hours of Saturday, February 25, 2017. The collision took the life of one motorcyclist and seriously injured two victims.
Daniel Gregson and Ron Schneider were riding their motorcycles with several other motorcyclists along Highway 99 between Elk Grove and Galt. For unknown reasons, the flow of traffic ahead came to abrupt stop in front of the motorcyclists. Gregson and two other riders were not able to slow down in time and collided with stopped vehicles.
Nature of Injuries
Two motorcyclists were transported to the Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center to be treated for major injuries. Bystanders at the scene attempted CPR on Daniel Gregson. Unfortunately, Gregson passed away at the scene.
Friends Blame Train Derailment Wreckage for Collision
Friends of Daniel Gregson blame the train derailment wreckage from February 10, 2017 as a cause of the bad backup on Highway 99. Friends say that drivers were slowing down due to the wreckage from the train derailment up ahead along the highway overpass crossing. The slow down on the highway caused traffic to suddenly come to a halt. Some believe this played as a factor in the motorcycle accident.
Loved One Forever Remembered
Daniel Gregson was a 37-year-old husband and father of three. Gregson was described to be a fun-loving guy according to his friend, Ron Schneider. A GoFundMe account has been set up by the loved ones of Gregson to cover the expenses of his funeral.
We extend our condolences to the loved ones of the man that passed away in this tragic motorcycle collision.
