 Antonio Montano, Brittney Montano Fatal Crash Interstate 80, Nevada County4 Killed in Crash with Wrong-way Driver on I-80 Freeway

NEVADA COUNTY, Calif. (November 22, 2021) – Brittney Montano, 29, Antonio Montano, 29, and two of their three children, died early Saturday in a collision with a wrong-way driver on the Interstate 80 Freeway in Nevada County.

The deadly crash happened about 4:47 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21st near Eagle Lakes Road at the Yuba Gap, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Both Brittney, 29, and Antonio Montano, 29, were traveling with three children under 7 years old, but only the infant survived the crash. The family is from North Highlands, California.

Wrong-way Driver Suspected of DUI

A suspected DUI driver in a Jeep reportedly drove the wrong-way in the eastbound lanes of the Interstate 80 Freeway. The Jeep eventually crashed head-on into the young North Highlands family’s Honda Civic, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Firefighters and paramedics responded to the crash scene and confirmed that both adults and the two children died.

Meanwhile, the infant suffered undisclosed injuries and was airlifted to the Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno. Also, paramedics rushed the driver of the Jeep to the same hospital with major injuries.

Finally, a third vehicle became involved in the aftermath of the collision, but it’s unknown if anyone was hurt in that vehicle.

Investigators with the CHP believe that the wrong-way motorist was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision.

However, the fatal Nevada County crash is still under investigation.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
