Shelby Little, 20, Arrested for DUI after Crash into Aftermath of Fatal Solo-Vehicle Accident on Hwy 70 in Yuba County

Yuba County, CA – According to CBS13, early Saturday morning, April 13, 2024, on Highway 70 in Yuba County, 20-year-old Shelby Little of Vacaville was arrested for DUI after colliding with the vehicle involved in a fatal solo-vehicle crash.

The incident began when a 55-year-old Olivehurst man lost control of his red Nissan sedan while driving south on Highway 70 near the Feather River Boulevard exit around 1:20 AM. The vehicle veered off the highway, collided with trees, and rolled back onto southbound Highway 70, blocking both lanes. Despite efforts to flag down help, the man succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Moments later, Little approached the crash scene driving a 2015 Audi A4. CHP officers reported that Little crashed into the Nissan. Subsequently, officers at the scene arrested Little for driving under the influence, and she was taken into custody.

Fortunately, emergency responders and one individual who stopped to help were unharmed during the incident. The highway was temporarily closed for about an hour as authorities conducted their investigations into both crashes.

Liability in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a solo-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
