Tyler Fhurong, 21, and Darren Chaytor, 31, Identified as 2 Men Killed in Crash

ELK GROVE, California (July 26, 2017) – Two people died early Wednesday morning after a delivery truck crashed into the back of a big rig on the northbound Interstate 5 Freeway, a California Highway Patrol report said.

The victims who died in the delivery truck were later identified as the passenger, Tyler Fhurong, 21, of Gilroy, and driver, Darren Chaytor, 31, of Hollister.

The crash took place about 5:23 a.m. this morning just north of Laguna Boulevard. The pickup truck was demolished beyond recognition after it crashed into the Hyundai semi-tractor-trailer truck.

The Sacramento Fire Department responded to the scene and a SigAlert was issued due to the Nos. 1 and 2 lanes being blocked. Later the two lanes reopened and a hard closure was in place for the No. 3 lane.

There is an investigation into what led to this collision and why the driver was heading the wrong way on the freeway.  Often when a driver is traveling in the wrong direction, it turns out they have been drinking or under the influence of drugs.

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.

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.
