I’m Ed Smith, a personal injury lawyer in Napa. Several people were injured in a crash on Monday, April 16, 2018, that authorities from California Highway Patrol (CHP) suspect to have been caused by a driver under the influence of alcohol.

CHP reports indicate that a 47-year-old man from Clearlake had been driving a Saturn sedan eastbound on River Road close to the intersection of Laughlin Road in unincorporated Sonoma County north of Santa Rosa. At approximately 6:30 a.m., the Saturn reportedly drifted west into the oncoming lane of traffic and struck a Ford-450 being driven by Jeffrey Rogers Jr., a 50-year-old Napa resident.


After this initial collision, the Saturn and the Ford both struck a 4Runner and Toyota Corolla that had been driving in the eastbound lane. The four vehicles eventually came to a rest, entirely blocking the roadway.
