Redding Multi Car Crash

Hi I’m Ed Smith, a Redding Car Accident Attorney. A multi car crash occurred on Southbound I-5 at the Cypress Avenue ramp in Redding, California. Enterprise High School’s new football coach, Russell McWilliams, was involved and injured in the crash.

What Happened?

The multi vehicle collision occurred at approximately 2:40 pm on Wednesday, July 6. 26-year-old Shilee Davidson, of Anderson, was driving in a Buick where the vehicle precariously merged and collided with a semi truck. The driver of the semi truck was identified as 57-year-old Mark Davis, of Anderson. Davidson’s vehicle then maneuvered to the left and struck a Nissan pickup driven by 31-year-old Russell McWilliams, of Redding. After Davidson’s car struck McWilliam’s pickup, McWilliams pick up lost control, drove off of the roadway, and crashed into a tree.

California Highway Patrol Reports

According to California Highway Patrol, McWilliams sustained minor injuries. The multi vehicle collision consisted of three involved vehicles. California Highway Patrol also reports that McWilliam’s pick up contained two adult passengers and four children in his vehicle. McWilliam’s three-year-old daughter was one of the four children involved in the crash.
