Crash Fatally Injures Galt Man

I’m Ed Smith, a Galt car accident lawyer. An accident involving two vehicles occurred on the night of Saturday, August 26, 2017. The crash, unfortunately, caused a Galt man to suffer fatal injuries.

What Happened?

A 28-year-old man from Galt was driving his 1998 Cadillac westbound along Highway 88 in the vicinity of Liberty Road at approximately 10:29 pm. At the same time, an 82-year-old man was behind the wheel of his 2003 Dodge traveling eastbound along Highway 88 at an estimated speed of 55 miles per hour. For unknown reasons, the motorist of the Cadillac abruptly veered into the oncoming traffic lane and collided with the Dodge. The impact of the collision caused the Dodge to overturn.

Nature of Injuries 

Authorities reported that the elderly man driving the Dodge was not injured as a result of the collision.

The man from Galt, who was driving the Cadillac, passed away due to his injuries. The identity of the victim has not yet been released by officials.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the loved ones and friends of the Galt man who passed away in this tragic accident.

What Caused the Crash?

The cause of the crash has not yet been decided by investigators. Authorities generally take 7 to 10 days to process a Traffic Collision Report. However, officials suspect that alcohol or drugs may have played as factors contributing to the collision. A traffic report may sometimes be inconclusive or contain error relating to fault. It is important, especially when a victim has passed away, to contact an experienced Galt personal injury lawyer. An experienced attorney can conduct a solo investigation of the collision scene and study the list of events leading up to the accident to determine liability.

Head-On Crashes

Head-on crashes are among the most serious type of motor vehicle collision. The reason for this is typically because the magnitude of impact is almost doubled due to the speed traveled by each car. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that such accidents oftentimes take place in rural areas, typically those with two-lane roads. These types of collisions tend to occur due to:
