Folsom-Auburn Road Car Accident


Folsom-Auburn Road Car Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Folsom car accident lawyer. A serious car accident took place in Folsom during the morning hours of Saturday, February 25, 2017. The accident caused two drivers to suffer traumatic injuries.

What Happened?

A Chevrolet pick-up truck was traveling northbound along Folsom-Auburn Road. At the same time, a Kia sedan was traveling southbound along Folsom-Auburn Road in the vicinity of Pinebook Drive. For unknown reasons, the driver of the Chevrolet veered into the southbound lanes of travel and struck the oncoming Kia. Due to the severity of the accident, Folsom’s Major Accident Response Team (MART) was dispatched to the scene to conduct an investigation. This resulted in a closure of the roadway for about three hours from Eureka Road to Folsom Crossing.

What Caused the Accident?

The cause of the accident is still under investigation. It generally takes up to two weeks for a Traffic Collision Report to be processed. Authorities conducted toxicology tests at the scene to determine if drunk driving could have been a factor in this car accident. The results of the toxicology tests will be released in several weeks. No arrests or citations have yet been made due to the pending results of the investigation.

Were the Drivers Okay?

The motorist traveling in the Chevrolet suffered moderate injuries and the motorist of the Kia suffered major injuries.

Wrong-Way Driving Accidents

Car accidents caused by wrong-way drivers can vary by factors. The most common factors that lead to wrong-way car accidents include driving under the influence, distracted driving and lack of traffic signs. This type of car accident can cause traumatic or even fatal injuries for victims in the involved vehicles. It is best to discuss with an experienced personal injury lawyer for more information.
