Five Injured in Two Car Collision in Natomas



Five Injured in Two Car Collision in Natomas

I’m Ed Smith, a Natomas car accident lawyer. Five people suffered injuries on Thursday, June 15, in an accident that involved two vehicles. According to a representative of the Fire Department in Sacramento, all the victims were transported to a hospital for medical attention.

I extend my sympathy and prayers to those injured in the accident and their families with the hope that they will recover soon and completely.

What Happened

The accident occurred along San Juan Road and Airport Road on the north side of Sacramento shortly before 4:30 in the afternoon. It was originally reported that the victims were one child and four adults. However, according to a later report, the victims were juveniles. Two victims have been reported to be in a condition described as critical, and the other victims’ medical conditions are unknown at this time. It is also unknown whether the occupants of the vehicles were using seat belts at the time of the accident or what damage the other vehicle sustained.

Accidents in Sacramento County

The California Office of Traffic Safety reported 9,747 injuries and fatalities in 2014 that were caused by motor vehicle accidents in Sacramento County. Among those accidents, 1,123 involved drunk drivers, 421 involved motorcycles and 440 of those accidents involved pedestrians. One surprising figure is that out of the total number, 2,376 of the accidents had speeding as a factor in the crash. When someone is injured as a result of a negligent driver who is speeding or driving drunk, an injury lawyer who is experienced in motor vehicle accidents can help recover fair compensation.

Accident Injuries

The injuries an individual suffers can depend on a number of different things. For example, the place where a motor vehicle is hit, which side, front or rear can make a difference. In addition, the speed that the vehicles are going can determine the severity of injuries in a crash. In any accident, injuries may range from simple bruises and cuts to more serious injuries such as abdominal trauma, broken bones and soft tissue injuries to traumatic brain injuries and damage to the spine. After head and spinal trauma, the third leading cause of death from a motor vehicle accident is chest trauma, which can require emergency treatment in order to save an individual’s life.
