Montgomery Creek Fatal Head-on Car Accident Highway 299, Fenders Ferry Road (Aug. 30)

 Montgomery Creek Fatal Head-on Crash Highway 299, Fenders Ferry Road (Aug. 30) Pest Control Truck, Pickup Crash Highway 299 Montgomery Creek

SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. (August 30, 2018) — At least one person was killed Thursday morning on Highway 299 when a pest control pickup truck and another pickup crashed head-on in Montgomery Creek, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

The crash was reported about 10 a.m. just south west of Fenders Ferry Road in front of the Halcumb Cemetery. The drivers of a silver pickup and a green and white pickup truck were involved. One person was struck inside a vehicle that overturned onto its side. A helicopter was scheduled to land nearby to transport a seriously injured person to a trauma center. It’s unknown if that was the person who died or if it was a different person.

It’s unknown at this time how many people were in the two vehicles. The roadway was closed due to the two vehicles blocking lanes, but later reopened by 11:33 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation to determine fault.

Shasta County Crash Investigation


A full investigation into what caused this collision is underway.  This is a narrow, two-lane highway and the crash took place in an area where passing is permitted on both sides of the roadway. Police will piece together evidence and speak with witnesses to determine fault. There are certainly many unanswered questions such as whether or not speed was a factor, distractions or a dangerous road condition.

We extend our condolences to the family of the person who died as well as our heartfelt prayers to anyone hurt in this collision. 

There are many steps that should be taken following a collision, but if you were injured the first step should be to obtain medical help. A surviving family member may have grounds for a wrongful death claim, however, a police report will be necessary to file an insurance claim.

We know that dealing with the insurance company can be difficult. We hope you are able to get the help you need, but if  you feel you need help, please do not hesitate to call us at 855-703-4186 to request a free consultation.

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
