Fiery Sunrise, Gold Country Boulevard Crash in Sacramento County

Sacramento County, CA — A vehicle caught fire following a multi-vehicle crash that injured one on Thursday afternoon, May 23, 2024, as reported by Fox40.

The collision occurred around 4 PM at the intersection of Sunrise Boulevard and Gold Country Boulevard, approximately one mile south of Fair Oaks.

According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a woman driving a Lexus SUV was heading west on Gold Country Boulevard and approached a red light at the intersection with Sunrise Boulevard. Meanwhile, a man driving a Nissan Altima was traveling north on Sunrise Boulevard, approaching a green light.

As the woman in the Lexus made a right turn onto Sunrise Boulevard, she collided with the Nissan Altima. The impact caused the Nissan driver to swerve left, hitting a Kia traveling south on Sunrise Boulevard. The collision resulted in the Nissan catching fire and becoming fully engulfed in flames.

CHP reported that the male driver of the Nissan managed to exit the vehicle with minor injuries, while the drivers of the Kia and Lexus were unharmed. Traffic at the intersection was blocked for about an hour as Sacramento Metro Fire crews extinguished the fire and cleared the scene.

Personal Injury Claims

When the actions of reckless drivers lead to injuries for others, the cost of caring for those injuries should not fall upon their victims. Filing a claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver can offer compensation to help cover medical bills and time taken off of work to recover from injuries.

However, insurance companies always have it in their interests to deny or minimize all claims they receive, which is why the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can make all the difference.
