Intersection Crash on Elverta Road Causes Vehicle Rollover

Two sedans collided in an Antelope intersection, which resulted in a significant injury. The collision occurred at the intersection of Elverta Road and Titan Drive between a Toyota Prius and an Acura SUV. The SUV, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), overturned, blocking the intersection. 

Investigation Underway to Determine Cause of Intersection Crash

Medics with the Sacramento Fire Department arrived at the scene to assess injuries. One patient was determined to have suffered a major injury and was transported to a hospital for further attention. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. The cause of the accident is being determined by CHP traffic accident investigators.

Why an Intersection Crash Causes Serious Injuries

Intersection accidents are especially dangerous because of the high speed and force at which vehicles collide. At intersections, cars typically travel in multiple directions at a higher rate of speed than on residential streets or highways. When two cars collide, they have more momentum, which increases the severity of the impact. This can lead to significant damage to both vehicles and injuries to any occupants inside them.

Injuries from intersection collisions range from minor bruises and lacerations to broken bones, head trauma, paralysis or death. The consequences may become even more severe if additional passengers are present in the car such as children who are not appropriately restrained with seat belts or car seats. In addition to physical harm, victims may suffer tremendous emotional distress due to the traumatic events associated with intersection crashes.

How a Lawyer Determines Fault in an Intersection Accident

When determining fault in an intersection collision, a lawyer will look at the circumstances that led up to the accident, such as any violations of traffic laws or negligence on the part of either driver. All drivers have a duty to obey all traffic rules and regulations, and if one fails to do so then they may be held liable for any resulting damages or injuries. 

Additionally, lawyers will consider other factors such as weather conditions, visibility and speed limits. Witnesses can also provide evidence that could help determine who was at fault in the crash. The lawyer’s job is to thoroughly investigate the scene of the crash and build a strong case that provides compensation for victims if possible.
