Rainy Day Accident Near Modesto
I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto car accident lawyer. The smell of fresh rain may lighten up any person’s spirit. However, rainy conditions are not always favorable by those who have to drive in this weather. Two vehicles were involved in a traffic accident near downtown Modesto on the morning of Thursday, November 9, 2017. Unfortunately, two parties were hospitalized for their injuries.
We would like to extend our wish for a speedy and full recovery to individuals who suffered injury as a result of the car accident.
A car accident involving two Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) occurred along Scenic Drive in the vicinity of Bodem Street at approximately 6:40 am. Officers from the Modesto Police Department blocked off the area of the crash and directed traffic around the wreckage. This resulted in traffic mayhem in both directions, causing congestion into downtown as a result.
Was Anybody Injured?
Officials reported that at least two parties were transported via ground ambulance to a hospital for injury treatment. It is not yet known which parties were hospitalized for their injuries.

The following video demonstrates the scene of the two-vehicle collision. As is revealed in the video, both vehicles sustained significant body damage. The video features a tow truck loading one of the vehicles onto its bed to haul it away from the scene.
Driving During Inclement Conditions
Drivers are obligated to operate their motor vehicles at a reasonable speed during inclement conditions. Maintaining a safe speed is important when driving in the rain because grease and oil both tend to rise to the surface of the roadway. Slippery road surfaces increases the risk of a vehicle hydroplaning and causing its driver to lose control. This may result in a serious car accident, especially when other vehicles are involved in the mix.
Injuries from Rainy Day Accidents
The nature of injuries incurred from rainy day accidents vary from person to person and other factors. Factors such as speed, size of vehicle and area of impact may affect how injuries incur in a car accident during rainy conditions. The most common types of serious injuries one may experience in a car accident:
- Emotional Distress and Trauma
- Arm and Upper Extremity Injuries
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Hip Fracture
- Spinal Cord Injuries
If you or a member in your family has been involved in a traffic accident, it is vital to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Receiving immediate medical attention is essential for injury treatment and filing a claim against an automobile insurance policy. Always maintain your medical appointments and avoid gaps in treatment to prevent an insurance adjuster from questioning the severity of your injuries. Failure to do so can result in reduced or even denied claim compensation. For more information, contact an experienced Modesto car accident lawyer.
