DATE OF INCIDENT: Tuesday, May 29th

May 30, 2018– According to the Sacramento CBS Local News, a deadly collision left two people dead and two others injured Tuesday morning on Walnut Grove-Thornton Road.

Authorities confirmed the crash to have transpired at roughly 7:30 p.m. between a Toyota Prius and a pickup truck.

Preliminary investigations have indicated that the driver of one of the vehicles attempted to pass slower moving traffic by entering opposite traffic lanes but ended up directly into the path of the other vehicle triggering the wreck.

Maria Silva Figueroa Among Fatal Victims

Two motorists in the Toyota Prius sustained fatal injuries including the driver and the right rear seated passenger. One of the victims has been identified as Maria Silva Figueroa, 22, of Walnut Grove.

Meanwhile, the front-seated passenger of the Prius suffered major injuries and was flown to a trauma center for immediate assessment.

The driver and lone occupant in the pickup truck was also injured and hospitalized with moderate injuries.

No further details have been released at this time regarding the cause of the wreck as the investigation is being carried out at this time by the California Highway Patrol.

A forensic examination of both the Toyota and the pickup truck, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the involved vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the family members of the fatal victims, as well as those, injured in the crash will be subject to a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit respectively pending the findings of the investigation. Victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income due to injury and inability to work, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
