Car Struck Paradise Work Crew

Hi I’m Ed Smith, an Oroville auto accident attorney. There were two vehicles involved in a collision at the intersection of Clark Road and Bille Road during the afternoon of Friday, July 8. The collision of the two vehicles then struck three Paradise public work crew employees that were working on a nearby traffic signal.

What Happened?

A blue Chevrolet truck was proceeding northbound on Clark Road where the female driver of the vehicle did not stop at the intersection. The intersection contained the dysfunctional signal light that the repair crew were working on at the time of the collision. The truck then collided with a white Toyota sedan that was heading eastbound on Bille Road. The two vehicles then struck the work crew that was repairing the signal light at the time.

Collision Aftermath

Two out of the three injured repair workers were transported to Enloe Medical Center in Chico. The third worker sustained minor injuries but stayed at the scene. The Toyota then struck a minivan that was parked in the parking lot of Sam’s Liquor shortly after the driver had entered the minivan. The three drivers of the three involved vehicles were not hurt. The Toyota was the only vehicle that required a tow to be removed from the scene.

Paradise Police Reports

Paradise police officer, Matthew Gates, stated all vehicles approaching an intersection where the signal lights are not functioning are required to stop at all times. The driver of the Chevrolet truck will be held liable for driving without a valid policy of insurance at the time of the accident. He will also be cited for failing to yield.
