Accident Involving Traffic Pole Near Turlock
I’m Ed Smith, a Turlock car accident lawyer. A single vehicle accident involving a traffic pole occurred near Turlock during the evening of Friday, August 18, 2017. The sole occupant of the car, unfortunately, suffered traumatic injuries resulting from the collision.
Crews from the Turlock Fire Department responded to a call for a single vehicle accident along Tuolumne Road and Colorado Avenue at approximately 11:30 pm. When they arrived, they located a vehicle that had appeared to have collided head-on with a traffic signal pole. The front of the car was split by the pole, causing the motorist to be pinned inside. Firefighters were prompted to initiate heavy extrication equipment to free the woman from the wrecked vehicle.
Was Anybody Injured?
The motorist was identified as a 25-year-old woman of Turlock. Sadly, she sustained major injuries as a result of the accident. She was transported via air ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.
What Caused the Accident?
The cause of the accident is not yet known. Officials generally take one to two weeks to process a Traffic Collision Report. The Major Accident Investigation Team of the Turlock Police Department are investigating the crash. Authorities do not suspect that drunk driving played a role in the collision.
Single Vehicle Accidents
The most common vehicular accidents tend to involve two or more cars. However, there are times when a collision involves only one vehicle. For instance, you are driving home and spot an animal or object in the roadway. You attempt to avoid the obstruction, however, you end up losing control of your vehicle and colliding with another object and/or building. Most of the time, you will be held liable for the accident.
There are other times when a single vehicle accident is completely unavoidable. You may be able to prove that the crash resulted from a hit-and-run driver, vehicle defect or road defect. For more information, contact an experienced Turlock personal injury lawyer.
