South Sacramento Hit and Run

I’m Ed Smith. I am a South Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyer.  On Saturday, December 19, 2015, a 17-year-old girl was struck by a South Sacramento hit and run driver at the intersection of Fruitridge Road and Vista Avenue. The light had just indicated it was her turn to walk when she was hit by what looked to be a 2002 or 2003 Toyota Solara. The car was headed east on Fruitridge Road. It failed to stop for a red light. The dark colored vehicle (possibly blue) hit the girl sending her up into the air and then landing back onto the street.

Preventing Holiday Fires

We love to hang the stockings by the chimney with care. But let’s be mindful that they don’t go up in flames. I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. It is heart-breaking when we learn of fires occurring in our community. The home is a place where sweet memories are made with those we hold so dear. There have been three home fires resulting in death in a little over one week. Heating equipment is one of the leading causes of fires that occur in homes. Nearly two-thirds of home heating fatalities are caused by portable space heating units.  We must be so careful with these devices. Equally important, is to become fire safe while decorating for the holidays.
