Person Killed In Vacaville Car Crash

Vacaville Car Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Vacaville wrongful death lawyer. One person was killed in a car accident that took place in Vacaville on Tuesday, April 24, 2018. Officers from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) said the accident involved only one vehicle and that they are looking into what caused the crash. The victim has not been identified.

I want to express my sincere sympathy to the grieving family of the victim in this accident.

Accident Details

So far, little has been reported by officers about this crash. CHP reported that the accident happened on the eastbound side of Highway I-80 in Vacaville just before 11:25 p.m. CHP also said that they received multiple calls from drivers reporting the accident.

Officers said when they arrived at the accident scene, a black Toyota Camry had rolled over and come to a stop on the road. Reports noted that first responders found one person in the driver’s seat of the overturned vehicle. Sadly, the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.


CHP is still investigating the cause of the crash. Investigators are looking at standard crash factors like faulty auto parts, roadway hazards, medical conditions that the driver may have, the actions of other drivers, and more.

Auto Products Liability

On many occasions, crashes are caused by drivers who make careless mistakes. When this happens, the at-fault drivers can be held responsible for damages they caused. However, when an accident is the fault of a vehicle part, the manufacturers of the faulty auto parts can be liable to pay for the damages. These cases can involve a wide variety of vehicle malfunctions, and insurance investigators don’t always spot them. It is essential to call a lawyer who knows how to investigate these types of cases.
