 Fatal Richmond Car Accident I-80 Freeway, Hilltop DriveMulti-Vehicle Crash in Richmond on I-80 Freeway

RICHMOND, Calif. (August 31, 2022) —  One person is dead, another injured following a multi-vehicle crash Wednesday on the eastbound Interstate 80 Freeway in Richmond.

The 3-vehicle crash occurred about 2:49 a.m. on August 31st, just east of Hilltop Drive, according to the California Highway Patrol dispatch.

A driver in a white pickup truck collided with a big rig truck and then crashed into the center divider of the freeway. The pickup suffered major front-end damage in the crash. Meanwhile, an oncoming silver SUV then hit the pickup truck and one of the vehicles overturned onto its roof. The two vehicles were “merged together,” the CHP report said.

Additionally, a witness told CHP dispatch operators that the driver in the big rig truck continued down the freeway without stopping.

One person died in the crash and a man was airlifted to Kaiser Richmond for treatment of major injuries.

Police diverted traffic towards Hilltop Drive and authorities are investigating the cause of the crash and liability.

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
