Sacramento Fatal Rollover Collision
I’m Ed Smith, and I’m a Sacramento wrongful death attorney. A man was driving in South Sacramento during the evening hours of Saturday, May 6, 2017. Unfortunately, the man was involved in a rollover collision that caused him to suffer fatal injuries.
A 31-year-old man was driving his 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer between 37th Avenue and Iowa Avenue at approximately 10:13 pm. The man allegedly turned onto Sampson Boulevard at a high rate of speed moments before he collided with a parked car. The impact caused the man’s vehicle to spin out of control and ejected him from the passenger window. The man landed face down in a grassy area of a nearby unoccupied lot. The Chevrolet continued to flip and then rolled over the man.
Officers from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and fire personnel from the Sacramento Fire Department responded to the area of the rollover collision at about 10:15 pm. Authorities found the Chevrolet over the injured man’s body. Crews were able to move the Chevrolet off the man. Sadly, the man was pronounced deceased at the scene.
We extend our condolences to the loved ones of the man that passed away in this tragic rollover collision.
