Placer County Interstate 80 Freeway Fatal Car Accident at Nvack Road in Gold Run

Fatal Crash on 80 Freeway Involving Big Rig Truck

 Placer County Interstate 80 Freeway Fatal Car Accident at Nvack Road (Sept. 11) PLACER COUNTY, Calif. (Sept. 11, 2018) — At least one person died Tuesday morning when a pickup truck sideswiped a big rig truck and crashed on the westbound Interstate 80 Freeway at Nvack Road in Gold Run near Lake Putt, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported at 5:45 a.m. The red Ford pickup truck went off the roadway and into a ditch after the collision. A helicopter was set to land at a nearby Nyack Shell station. The coroner was called due to at least one death reported at the scene.

The pickup truck had four blown out tires and was towed away for evidence by Five Star Tow. There was also a hazmat environmental cleanup at the scene because one of the involved vehicles had an external tank that ruptured.

Placer County Accident Investigation

The investigation into this collision is underway to determine fault.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of the person or persons who died in this horrible crash. 

There are many steps that should be taken following a collision to ensure your legal rights are protected, but this can vary depending on the circumstances. An injured person should seek out immediate and ongoing medical care until they are completely better.  If someone has died, a wrongful death claim may be pursued by surviving family members against those responsible and or their insurance companies.

Keep in mind that there are times when a government entity or an employer of an involved motorist that may share responsibility for an accident. All responsible parties can be identified during the investigation.
