SACRAMENTO: Fatal Car Crash on Highway 50 at Howe Avenue Exit

SACRAMENTO: Fatal Car Crash on Highway 50 at Howe Avenue ExitSACRAMENTO, California — According to an article by Sacramento CBS, one man died and another suffered injuries following a series of collisions on Highway 50 Wednesday early morning.

On March 1 a little after midnight, California Highway Patrol said a car heading east on the freeway crashed into the south guardrail for unknown reasons. The vehicle came to a rest with the driver’s side facing oncoming traffic, as per the article.

Then, the driver of a second car about to exit at Howe Avenue did not notice the wreck, and ended smashing against the driver’s door area of the first vehicle. The second collision knocked out the first vehicle’s engine, and pushed it through the fifth lane of the highway.

The third impact happened on the fifth lane where a third car struck the initially totaled vehicle.

Paramedics arrived shortly and located the driver of the first vehicle unconscious. The man, briefly described as a 22-year-old Carmichael resident, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Further, the driver of the second car was found by emergency crews in pain. He was immediately provided treatment for sustained injuries of minor severity, as per Sacramento CBS.

Fortunately, the third driver escaped without harm, officials said.

The California Highway Patrol group is conducting separate investigations on the three collisions. Officers said they have not yet ruled out involvement of drugs and alcohol on the deadly car accident.


The Johnson Attorneys Group’s prayers and thoughts rest with the family members and friends of both the deceased and injured.

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. 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.
