Shane Stugis, Levi Miller Highway 99 Sutter County Truck Accident

 Nicolaus Head-on Crash Kills 2 on Highway 99 at Sacramento Ave (Oct. 8)2 Dead in Head-on Crash with Big Rig Truck

SUTTER COUNTY, Calif. (Oct. 8, 2018)  —  Shane Scott Stugis, 32, and Levi Allen Miller, 19, both of Yuba City, died early Monday morning when a big rig collided head-on with a truck on Highway 99 in Nicolaus, according to a report by Fox 40 News.

The California Highway Patrol reported the collision about 6 a.m. near Sacramento Avenue in Sutter County.

Victoriano Sepulveda, 49, of Los Banos, was driving the big rig truck and heading northbound when for unknown reasons the vehicle veered into oncoming southbound traffic. The big rig truck struck the other truck which had four occupants killing his driver and the teenage passenger named above.

A 1996 Toyota pickup truck driven by Jose M. Pintoralvarado, 35, of Yuba City, then crashed into the back of the semi-truck. Pintoralvarado suffered minor injuries, but his two passengers were uninjured.

Sutter County Accident Investigation

Police are piecing together evidence and will determine fault for this crash, but based on the facts presented in the report it appears the big rig truck driver was at fault. There are certainly many unanswered questions about this collision such as whether or not drowsy driving, distractions or speed were factors. Investigators will also determine whether or not a mechanical problem was to blame.

We offer our condolences to the families of the two people who died. 

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 company.

We hope you are able to get the help you need, but if you would like legal assistance, please call us at 855-703-4186 to request a free consultation.
