Hit-and-Run Driver Arrested in Yuba City Following ATV Crash
On Wednesday, June 24, 2020, a man was arrested in Yuba City on charges related to a hit-and-run accident that injured an ATV rider in late May. The collision reportedly occurred in Colusa County and left a woman with major injuries. In addition to the ATV, the hit-and-run driver also struck a second passenger vehicle during the incident, although no other parties were injured.
The collision happened on the northbound side Highway 45 in the small community of Princeton on May 31. The ATV rider was reportedly stalled on the side of the highway while the arrested driver was traveling with his wife and 15-year-old son in a 2014 Buick LaCross. The Buick reportedly veered off the highway and collided head-on into the ATV, throwing the rider onto the ground.
Directly after the crash, a second passenger vehicle pulled in front of the Buick to prevent the driver from leaving the scene. According to police, the driver exited the car and ran away from the location on foot. CHP indicated that the passengers of the Buick remained on-scene and cooperated with responders.
Injuries and Arrest
Medical responders were called into the accident scene directly after the incident was reported to CHP. As emergency officials arrived at the site, they discovered that the ATV rider had suffered severe trauma and had her transported to a nearby hospital via ambulance. Updates on her condition have not been reported.
The driver was reportedly arrested at an unreported location in Yuba City without incident. According to police, he is currently facing multiple felony charges related to the accident.
Auto Accident Injuries
Suffering a serious injury during a vehicle accident can change your life. People who are seriously injured in accidents often face a long and painful recovery process that takes months or even years. With severe injuries, it’s possible that you will suffer symptoms that affect you for the rest of your life like limited mobility, chronic pain, or issues with cognition. All of these issues can be difficult to deal with and can affect many different aspects of your life.
On top of being mentally stressful and personally challenging, car accident injuries can be expensive. In many cases, collision survivors need extensive medical care that can include surgeries, physical therapy, medications, and more. Furthermore, accident injuries are likely to affect your ability to work, causing a serious loss of income or earning potential. Unfortunately, these costs can often leave crash survivors unsure of how they’ll be able to move on with their lives.
People who’ve been hurt in car accidents deserve help. Fortunately, it is possible to recover compensation for your losses by filing a personal injury claim with the help of an experienced lawyer. In many cases, survivors can claim compensation for the full amount of damages they’ve suffered and pay off medical bills as well as make up for lost income, damaged property, and more.
