Sierra County, CA – Major Injury Accident on Highway 49

Fatal two-vehicle crash causes car fire in Orange County

Sierra County, CA (August 8, 2018) – An accident with serious injuries occurred Tuesday evening in Sierra County.  The crash happened on Highway 49, near Calpine.  Just after 8:00 pm, a Mini Cooper and a pickup truck collided with one another.  It is unknown exactly how the collision took place.

Unfortunately, serious injuries were reported in this crash.  Both drivers were transported to nearby hospitals to received medical treatment.   There is no additional word on their conditions at this time and it is not known if the injuries are life-threatening.

The California Highway Patrol along with firefighters and paramedics all assisted at the crash scene.  The drivers involved have not been identified.  Police have not released any further details as an investigation into the accident is currently ongoing.

Serious Injury Crashes in California

It appears as though this collision caused serious injuries to both drivers.  We certainly hope that none of the injuries are life-threatening and that all who were injured will be ale to have a full recovery.

Police are still looking into the crash to determine legal responsibility.  In a personal injury case, legal fault is a concept known as negligence.  Every driver has a duty of reasonable care for the safety of others.  Generally, this means that a driver must avoid engaging in unsafe behaviors that could lead to an accident, including reckless driving, distracted driving and speeding.  Drivers should always follow traffic laws to avoid a higher risk of collision.

If a driver’s negligence causes a crash and leads to injuries then the driver is legally responsible for any injuries sustained.  In a Southern California car accident, an injured victim must bring a lawsuit within two years of the crash.   The victim may assert claims to be paid for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
