Oroville Highway Crash Kills Two

Police from Oroville area California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that a fatal accident happened on a local highway on Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Police say that the crash happened south of Oroville and left at least two individuals with injuries that cost them their lives. The identities of the fatally injured persons have not been reported by officials. CHP says that their investigators are still looking into possible causes of this accident. I would like to send my condolences to the grieving families and friends of the people who tragically lost their lives in this accident.

Crash Details

CHP reports indicate that the accident happened at around 11:25 a.m. A pickup truck and sedan, both of unreported make and model, were traveling on Highway 70 near Ramirez Road. The two vehicles crashed into each other, causing major damages. Further details about how the crash happened have not been reported as of yet.

Emergency response officials who responded to the crash scene reported that they found multiple people with severe injuries. At least two of these people tragically passed away at the accident scene.


Both lanes of Highway 70 were blocked to traffic after the crash. Traffic officers diverted drivers onto Woodruff Lane to avoid the area. Police investigated the crash scene for evidence and workers removed the wreckage from the road. The highway was eventually re-opened at 2:00 p.m., around two and a half hours after the collision took place.

Multiple vehicle accidents can be caused by many factors. These factors commonly include things like driving over the speed limit, distraction, medical issues, defective car parts, hazards in the road, and more.

What to Do After a Fatal Accident

Fatal car accidents often leave families devastated. Suddenly having to accept that someone you care about has passed away can be very emotionally difficult. The families of people who lose their lives in accidents often find themselves overcome with complex emotions. These emotions can be intense, and it can be hard to focus on anything other than mourning. It’s important to understand that these emotions are normal and that learning how to cope with grief can take time.

Unfortunately, the people who are responsible for car accidents almost always start to defend themselves right away. While it is important to take your time while working through the grieving process, calling a wrongful death lawyer is one thing you shouldn’t delay. An experienced attorney will be able to begin working on your case right away in order to make sure you get the payments you deserve from the people responsible for the crash.

Finding a Lawyer

Even though you may know that you need a lawyer, many people are unsure of how to find the right attorney. It’s important to have an attorney that you can trust and that you feel comfortable with. There are a few good methods you can use to make sure that your lawyer is compassionate, experienced, and trustworthy. Learn about these methods by watching the below short video:
