Turlock Single Vehicle Collision


Turlock Single Vehicle Collision

I’m Ed Smith, a Turlock personal injury lawyer. A Sacramento man was driving along the highway in Turlock during the afternoon hour of Saturday, June 24, 2017. Unfortunately, the man was involved in a single vehicle collision, which caused him to suffer fatal injuries.

What Happened?

A 42-year-old man from Sacramento was driving his 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee southbound along Highway 99 in the vicinity of the West Main Avenue exit at approximately 4:00 pm. For unknown reasons, the man’s vehicle veered off the roadway towards the right side, collided through a chain link fence and crashed into two redwood trees. The impact of the collision caused the man to be ejected from the vehicle.

Was He Okay?

Medics were dispatched to the scene of the collision to assist the injured man. When medical personnel arrived, they pronounced the man deceased at the scene.

Our deepest sympathies are with the loved ones of the man that passed away in this tragic car accident.

What Caused the Collision?

It is still too soon to determine a cause of the car accident. Authorities usually take from seven to ten days to release a Traffic Collision Report. Sometimes, traffic reports can be inconclusive pertaining to fault. It is crucial, especially when a victim has lost their life, to contact an experienced car accident lawyer who can immediately conduct their own investigation of the collision scene and study the sequence of events leading up to the accident to pinpoint liability (fault).

Similar Single Vehicle Collision

A similar single vehicle collision occurred in Turlock on June 4, 2017. A 19-year-old Delhi man was driving his 1998 Lincoln Navigation northbound along Highway 99 at about 11:00 pm. For unknown reasons, the man allegedly made an unsafe turning movement to the right. This resulted in the man losing control of his vehicle, allowing it to drift off the roadway and down an embankment. The vehicle overturned several times, collided with a fence and caught fire in a nearby field. The man was rescued by a passing motorist that witnessed the crash.
