Citrus Heights Car Accident on 80 Freeway, October 91 Seriously Injured Citrus Heights Multi-Car Crash on 80 Freeway

CITRUS HEIGHTS (October 10, 2018) – A major injury collision took place along the Interstate 80 Freeway on Tuesday morning, according to California Highway Patrol dispatch team.

The accident was reported at approximately 8:35 a.m. near Greenback Lane and Garfield Avenue.

CHP first logged the incident when five vehicles collided for an unknown reason in the westbound lanes of the 80 Freeway.

Three of the cars involved were described as a 2014 tan Honda Accord, a white Audi and a black colored SUV which sustained front-end damage upon impact.

Sacramento Fire Department officials along with the paramedics responded to the scene and attended to at least one person who was confirmed to have been seriously injured as a result of the crash.

The patient, whose name was not disclosed, was then taken to the hospital to be treated for major injuries.

Meanwhile, authorities are still investigating the cause of the wreck.

A forensic examination of all the vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of the crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.

Pending the result of the investigation, the injured and held not liable for the collision may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
