Woman Identified After Vallejo Crash
On Friday, September 6, 2019, authorities from the Solano County Sheriff’s Department released the identity of a local woman who was fatally injured during a Vallejo crash six days earlier. The woman was identified as Amber Fisher, a 33-year-old resident of Vallejo. In addition to Fisher, four more people suffered injuries that ranged from minor to severe. The accident is still under investigation by the Vallejo Police Department (VPD). In addition to identifying the decedent, authorities have also released more information about the collision since it was first reported.
The accident took place at the intersection of Redwood Street and Valle Vista Avenue. Fisher had been the rear passenger in a black Nissan Altima that attempted to make a left turn to enter Valle Vista from Redwood. While performing the turn, the Altima was reportedly struck by a gold Nissan Maxima. The Maxima struck the side of the Altima head-on, sustaining major damage in the process.
Police who responded to the accident reported that they spoke briefly with the Altima driver, who was identified as a 53-year-old Vallejo man before the man got back into his car and attempted to drive away from the scene. While the man drove away, his front-right passenger fled the site on foot. Both were located and detained by police a short time later. Officers say that they stopped the vehicle at the intersection of Panorama and Tuolumne Drives. Upon stopping the vehicle a second time, police found that there were two more passengers in the vehicle seated in the rear, including Fisher.
The 23-year-old male driver of the Maxima reportedly suffered minor injuries while his 23-year-old female passenger was not injured during the incident.
Police allegedly discovered illegal drugs and alcohol inside the vehicle. The driver, who was found with a broken ankle, was arrested before being released into hospital custody and subsequently booked into the Solano County Jail. The left-rear passenger, a 44-year-old Vallejo man, suffered minor injuries while the front-right passenger, a 40-year-old Vallejo man, broke his leg as a result of the crash. Tragically, Fisher, who had been the left-rear passenger, suffered fatal injuries.
No other individuals were reported to have been a part of the crash.
As VPD continues their investigation into this accident, officers have asked for help from the public. Anyone with information that could help investigators better understand this accident has been asked to contact the VPD Traffic Division at (707) 648-4011 and to refer to case number 19-10355.
Finding a Good Attorney
It’s impossible to replace the presence of a family member or friend. However, families can often recover payments for their losses from the parties responsible for accidents. These payments can help people to have financial security so that they can focus on taking time to work through their grief after experiencing such a traumatic event.
One of the main things that keeps people from seeking help after a fatal crash is that they aren’t sure how they can find a lawyer who can be trusted to handle their case with compassion and excellence. While this may seem like a difficult task, there are a few useful methods you can easily use to make sure your lawyer is right for you. Watch the below video to learn more:
