Shasta County Jail Crash

Shasta County Jail Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Redding Auto Accident Lawyer. A female driver in a silver Honda Accord came into contact with the Shasta County Jail in Redding.

What Happened?

The motorist of the silver Honda Accord was driving northbound on West Street through the intersection of Placer where she was struck by another vehicle. Authorities stated that the female motorist of the silver Honda Accord was struck by a Toyota Prius. The motorist of the Toyota Prius was granted permission to leave the scene shortly after the accident. At approximately 5:10 pm, the female driver drove into the fence of the Shasta County Jail which caused it to collapse over. A witness nearby the collision area stated that she had heard the clenching sound of a vehicle’s brakes shortly after the vehicle drove off the roadway.

Redding Police Department Reports

According to the Redding Police Department, the cause of the crash was stated to be a result of a right of way violation. The vehicle is still operational and has been removed since the occurrence of the accident. The impact from the vehicle caused about sixteen feet of the fencing at the Shasta County Jail to fall out as a result. There have been no reports of any injuries.
