Citrus Heights Couple Involved in Tragic Accident on I-80
YOLO CAUSEWAY (September 27, 2016)- According to the Sacramento Bee, a freak accident resulted in a man’s death and serious injuries to a woman on the eastbound Interstate 80 freeway.
Per the Sacramento Bee, the incident involved a series of collisions, the first one taking place at 2:33 a.m. when a Ford Fusion became disabled in the slow lane. David Miranda, 36, and Lethesia Guzman, 27, both exited the vehicle and walked over to the right-hand shoulder.
Moments later a big rig smashed into the Ford pushing it into the middle lane as the big rig driver pulled over to the right-hand shoulder.
A passing Toyota Prius suddenly struck the Ford throwing it into the air, where at some point both Guzman and Miranda were struck and pushed over the side of a railing.
The incident left David Miranda with fatal injuries while Guzman was seriously injured and rushed to UC Davis Med Center.
The report did not indicate whether or not any of the other involved motorists were injured in the collision and whether or not the victim’s vehicle had its hazard lights on prior to the first crash.
Many questions are still left unanswered at this time as the California Highway Patrol-Woodland office investigates the accident.
All of us at Johnson Attorneys Group offer our sincere condolences to the family of Mr. David Miranda while our prayers remain with Ms. Lethesia Guzman at this time.
