Two Hospitalized After Sacramento Car Accident


Two Hospitalized After Sacramento Car Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento personal injury lawyer. A car accident took place along Highway 99 in Sacramento during the morning hours of Tuesday, March 21, 2017. Unfortunately, the crash caused two people to be hospitalized.

What Happened?

A gray sedan and a silver Toyota Prius were traveling northbound along Highway 99 at about 6:20 am. For unknown reasons, the two vehicles collided at the Calvine Road off-ramp. One of the involved vehicles was discovered blocking the first lane and the other vehicle was found disabled on the right shoulder of the roadway.

Two people were found injured and required prompt medical attention. The two victims were both transported by paramedics to the Kaiser Permanente South Medical Center.

What Caused the Accident?

It is still too soon to determine a cause of the accident. It usually takes authorities up to two weeks to process a Traffic Collision Report. People who have been involved in car accidents know that traffic collision reports sometimes contain errors as to who is at fault. This is why it is so important to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer when involved in an accident. Your attorney can investigate the events leading up to the crash to properly determine fault. If someone else was negligent, your attorney can help you recover compensation for injuries and other damages.

Preventing Car Accidents

It is important to exercise extra care when sharing the roadway with other drivers. A good way of avoiding collisions and increasing road safety is by keeping a safe distance while driving. Always remind yourself to maintain a slower pace when you notice oncoming traffic and reduce your speed while making turns to avoid car accidents.
