Vacaville, CA (March 14, 2023) – A crash in which multiple vehicles were involved took place on Monday morning in the Vacaville area and ended in injuries.
Reports from the California Highway Patrol show that just after 5:20 a.m. on March 13, a white pickup truck, a red 2020 Lexus, and two additional vehicles collided on the westbound lanes of Interstate 80. The crash prompted the shutdown of the roadway just west of North Meridian Road.
Damaged vehicles had to be towed from the scene of the accident by an area towing company. The accident caused severe disruptions in the area as emergency crews worked to clear the scene.
A male victim that was inside the pickup truck was injured in the crash. One ambulance responded to the scene of the crash to render aid to the victim and to transport him to Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center for further medical care.
California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash at this time.
Car Accidents in California
Multiple vehicle accidents take place far too often in California. In fact, more than 70 percent of accidents that are reported involve two or more vehicles. When multiple vehicles collide on our busy roadways, there is a significant chance that victims will suffer serious injuries.
It is all too common to see victims left with traumatic brain injuries as a result of their accidents. These debilitating injuries are incredibly painful and can impact the mood and memory of victims. It is also common to see victims suffer from broken bones. Broken legs, broken arms, and even broken hands can have a significant impact on a victim’s ability to perform various tasks. Other common injuries reported in auto accidents across our state include internal organ injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, and severe cuts and lacerations.
Regrettably, many victims are forced to deal with these and other painful injuries due to the negligent actions of motorists. When drivers are traveling to higher speeds, drift into other lanes, operate their vehicle recklessly, or engage in other acts of negligence, they risk causing accidents that leave other victims with devastating and life-altering injuries.
The unfortunate truth is the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident can be incredibly challenging to endure. Trying to overcome painful injuries and protect your legal rights can be incredibly difficult.
