South Sacramento Fiery Car Wreck

I’m Ed Smith, a South Sacramento Traumatic Injury Attorney.  Victims of car accidents that result in burn injuries can be serious and life altering.

On Wednesday, November 17, 2015, just before 11:00 p.m. a car collided with a truck causing a fiery wreck. The truck was pushed up against a fence pinning the driver inside. The video images taken by Fox 40 News are graphic.  The video depicts how sudden and violent car accidents may become.

Location of Crash

This accident occurred in South Sacramento on Del Norte Avenue and Fruitridge Road.

Toyota Caught Fire

The driver of the Toyota was able to get free from the vehicle before it became completely engulfed in flames.

Truck Mangled up against a fence

The driver of the truck was pinned by twisted metal.  Due to the heat of the fire, emergency crews were not immediately able to free him. After a short time, he was removed by emergency personnel from the truck.  He was transported to an area hospital in serious condition.
