Sacramento, CA – North Highlands witnessed a collision resulting in major injuries Monday, January 22, 2024, as a vehicle, attempting to evade Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputies, crashed into a light pole, according to KCRA.
When a deputy initiated a traffic stop, the vehicle sped away and then collided with a light pole in the area of Watt Avenue and Winona Way, situated across from an Arco gas station.
LiveCopter 3 footage captured the heavily damaged vehicle that struck the light pole, with two additional vehicles showing signs of damage.
The motive behind the deputy’s attempt to pull over the vehicle remains undisclosed. Investigations are underway to shed light on the circumstances surrounding the attempted traffic stop and subsequent crash.
The liability insurance that drivers are required to carry offers coverage not just for injuries their reckless actions cause those outside their vehicle but also for their passengers. Those who are injured by another’s driving should not have to bear the financial burden of their hospital bills, even if they know the driver personally.
While maneuvering a situation like this might be tricky, a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can provide guidance to ensure that victims receive the best compensation possible from an at-fault driver’s insurance.
