Folsom Fatal Head-On Crash

Folsom Fatal Head-On Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Folsom Personal Injury Lawyer. A 911 call came in at approximately 5:09 am about a fatal head-on crash. The accident involved three vehicles on a road located south of the Highway 50 in Folsom on September 15, 2016.

What Happened?

A motorist of a blue sedan was traveling northbound on Scott Road. For unknown causes, the driver of the blue sedan swerved over the median and onto the northbound lane. The blue sedan clipped the side of the third vehicle involved in the accident. The blue sedan then came into contact with an oncoming black truck approaching from the northbound direction.
