 OROVILLE: Head-on Crash Highway 99, Cottonwood Road (Sept. 10)Fatal Head-on Crash State Route Highway 99

RICHVALE, Calif. (Sept. 10, 2018) — Two people died Monday morning in a head-on crash on Highway 99, at Cottonwood Road near Richvale, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch.

The crash was reported about 5:23 a.m. this morning when two motorists collided in the northbound lane and one struck a pole and the other ended up in a ditch. The CHP report stated that there was debris all over the roadway after the collision.

Police say an 18-year-old woman driving a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta southbound drifted into northbound lanes and struck the 2012 Honda Civic driven by Thai Vang, 27, of Oroville.  Next, a 2004 Dodge Ram pickup struck the disabled Volkswagen.

At least three tow trucks were sent to the scene to remove the damaged vehicles including a grey Honda.

Police are heading up an investigation into what happened and liability.

Fatal Crash Investigation

The investigation into this tragic crash is underway.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of the person or persons 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.  If someone has died, a wrongful death claim may be pursued by surviving family members against those responsible and or their insurance companies. An injury suffered in a collision needs immediate attention as well as ongoing medical care to ensure a full recovery.

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

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.
