Oakley Crash Injures Five
I’m Ed Smith, an Oakley personal injury lawyer. A multi-vehicle collision took place in Oakley during the afternoon hours of Tuesday, April 18, 2017. The crash caused five victims to suffer injuries.
An automobile accident involving four cars took place along East Cypress Road in the vicinity of Jersey Island Road at approximately 3:38 pm. Firefighters from the East Contra Costa Fire responded to the scene of the collision. When they arrived, they discovered three victims with minor injuries, one victim with moderate injuries and one victim with traumatic injuries. The victim that suffered traumatic injuries was transported via medical helicopter to the trauma center at John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek.
What Caused the Crash?
It’s too early to know the exact cause of the multi-vehicle crash. It can typically take authorities up to a week to process a Traffic Collision Report. Officers from the Oakley Police Department are handling the investigation. Authorities indicated that serious damage was caused to all four vehicles due to the impact of the collision.
Sometimes police reports contain mistakes. Other times police reports may be inconclusive as to fault. This is why it is a good idea to contact an experienced Oakley accident attorney. An accident attorney will take the time to thoroughly investigate the accident. If you were injured by a negligent driver, your attorney can file a personal injury claim and recover compensation for your damages.
A multi-vehicle collision is a type of automobile accident that involves many vehicles and usually occurs along high-speed roadways such as highways. This type of collision is among one of the deadliest forms of traffic accidents because they can cause victims to suffer traumatic, catastrophic or even fatal injuries.
