Collision at an intersection leaves a driver dead

On Behalf of | Feb 24, 2024 | Car Accidents

In recent years, it seems that traffic accidents are happening more and more across California. In every state, traffic laws and infrastructure exist specifically to protect motorists as well as prevent car accidents. Yet, for these laws and safety measures to work and be effective, they must be followed. Unfortunately, not all drivers will adhere to traffic laws or stay focused behind the wheel.  

Fatal crash 

Recently in Sacramento, a two-vehicle crash at an intersection claimed the life of a motorist. The accident happened during the overnight hours at the intersection of Roseville Road and Marconi Avenue. According to reports, a silver vehicle crashed into a red SUV at the intersection causing the SUV to rollover. 

Reportedly, the SUV came to rest on its top and leaning against a pole. Tragically, authorities said the driver of the SUV was killed in the wreck. The occupants of the silver vehicle were not injured, police said. Apparently, police and multiple emergency vehicles remained on the scene for hours while the crash was investigated and cleared. 

Help is available 

A deadly accident such as this one can happen in the blink of an eye and often when least expected. Sadly, negligent and reckless drivers cause thousands of serious and fatal car accidents every year across the country. Those in California who have suffered injuries or loss in an accident caused by the negligence of another party can get help by consulting an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. Monetary damages from a successful lawsuit could help victims and family members with medical bills and other financial losses that may have occurred due to an accident.
