Traffic levels have increased to near pre-pandemic levels around the Sacramento Valley and their return has arrived with predictable results. The California Highway Patrol says that statewide they have been dealing with dramatic rises in speed as a result of fewer cars on the road due to the lockdown. The concern the CHP had was once traffic levels returned the speed levels would remain in the excessive range. Tuesday evening the worst happened.

A driver was killed and three others injured in a crash Tuesday evening involving 9 cars and a big rig on Interstate 5 in the Pocket area of Sacramento. The crash was reported at the height of the evening commute and necessitated the closure of the southbound lanes near Florin Road. The CHP reports the big rig was hauling plywood when it rear ended a BMW, Kia sedan and a Chrysler sedan. Those vehicles were pushed and continued to hit other vehicles in their path.

A man in his 30s driving the Chrysler was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the big rig was not injured. A witness told officers a vehicle was spotted speeding recklessly before the crash and officers are working to determine whether that vehicle was involved in the crash or was somehow responsible. The officers have no reason to believe that alcohol or drugs were responsible for the crash although that remains under investigation. The area did not reopen to traffic until 10 p.m.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
