Fulton Ave, Munroe St Crash with Tree Kills 1, Hospitalizes 1 near Loehmann’s Plaza in Arden Arcade

Sacramento, CA – A devastating car crash in the Arden Arcade area of Sacramento County resulted in the death of one man and the hospitalization of a passenger early Sunday morning, June 16, 2024, according to The Sacramento Bee.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that the incident occurred shortly after midnight on the 600 block of Fulton Avenue, near the Y intersection with Munroe Street by Loehmann’s Plaza.

A Porsche sedan driving at a high rate of speed was traveling southbound toward the road’s split when he was unable to negotiate the turn. The vehicle veered into the median and collided with a tree on the Y bar.

Emergency responders from the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District arrived swiftly, but the driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger sustained minor injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The identity of the deceased driver will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office once his family has been notified. The CHP’s investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing, and further details are expected as the investigation progresses.

Liability in Single-Vehicle Collisions

In certain situations, investigations may uncover that some liability for a single-vehicle collision falls on other drivers nearby or even on unsafe roadway structures. Sorting through these details to help victims and their families secure proper compensation is one of the key services a personal injury attorney offers.

After establishing liability, a personal injury attorney can negotiate with insurance companies on the victim’s behalf. Insurance companies invariably aim to minimize payouts for claims they cannot deny, making legal representation crucial for obtaining fair compensation.

Passenger Liability

The liability insurance that drivers carry is designed to cover accidental harm caused not only to those outside the vehicle but also to passengers within it. A driver is responsible for the safety of everyone in their vehicle.

While making a Wrongful Death or personal injury claim against someone who knew the victim personally can be emotionally challenging, the financial burdens following a vehicular accident can be substantial.

A skilled personal injury attorney can help grieving families seek proper compensation for their loss by navigating these complex issues and negotiating on the victim’s behalf with insurance companies, who routinely work to minimize the payout of any claim they cannot deny.
