Carson City, NV (August 13, 2020) – A multi-vehicle accident during which one person was reportedly struck by a car occurred in Carson City on the morning of Tuesday, August 11th.

As stated in a brief report printed by a local news source, the incident took place at about 2:00 p.m. when three vehicles of unspecified make and model collided with one another and reportedly a pedestrian as well along Lincoln Highway near the Lake Tahoe East Shore Forest. 

Local law enforcement officers along with multiple emergency response units were all summoned to the scene of the multi-vehicle collision. 

At this time, accounts of victims with crash-related injuries including one victim who was reportedly hit by one of the vehicles involved remain unsubstantiated. Emergency medical personnel at the scene would have provided a medical assessment of anyone involved in the incident and the relevant emergency treatment or transportation was administered to those who needed it.

No additional information pertaining to the names or post-crash medical conditions of the victims have not been disclosed. Further details concerning the events leading up to the incident are also very sparse. 

Cause and liability for this accident are currently under professional inquiry by local law enforcement officers. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Reno, NV (August 13, 2020) – Officers from the Reno Police Department have revealed new information pertaining to a car accident that took place at the intersection of Whitfield Way and Wedekind Road on the afternoon of Monday, August 10th.

According to a story published by a local news source, various emergency response agencies were dispatched to the scene of the accident. On their arrival, they learned that the driver of one of the cars involved in the collision trapped inside their vehicle and would require immediate extrication. 

Crash investigators with the Reno Police Department stated that police officers on the scene discovered that, for reasons that have yet to be determined, a sedan that was traveling eastbound along Wedekind Road suddenly swerved over the centerline, and collided with a minivan that was heading in the opposite direction.

All three of the sedan’s occupants were transported via ambulance to Renown Health and Hospital Network with injuries that were classified as life-threatening. 

The driver of the minivan was also transported to Renown Health and Hospital Network in an ambulance with injuries that were classified as minor.

Officials stated that the Major Accident Investigation Team also reported to the crash site to conduct a professional inquiry into cause and liability for the accident. Local law enforcement has stated that speed played a role in the critical accident but it is unclear at this time if driver impairment was also a factor.

The portion of Wedekind Road between Whitfield Way and Clear Acre Lane was closed off for quite a few hours but fully reopened to traffic at about 10:00 p.m. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Las Vegas, NV (August 13, 2020) – Two adults, a young child, and a family pet were killed during a fiery multi-car collision between an off-roading vehicle, a sedan, and a Ford pick-up truck that took place on the morning of Thursday, August 13th.

As stated by officers from the Nevada Highway Patrol, at approximately 11:15 a.m., a Ford pick-up truck that was pulling an off-road vehicle along the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 was on its way to the northbound exit ramp for Interstate 95 when a sedan also heading northbound along Interstate 15 attempted a dangerous lane change. 

The failed lane change caused the sedan to strike a roadside crash attenuator before colliding with the Ford pick-up. The force of the high-speed impact then prompted both the vehicles to crash into the barrier wall on the righthand side of the interstate before both going over the side and becoming totally engulfed in flames.

Eyewitnesses to the atrocity informed police officers that the sedan was driving dangerously when the collision occurred, stating that the driver was weaving back and forth across the solid white lines just moments prior to impact. 

The occupants of the pick-up truck, a man and his 4-year-old little girl, were still inside the truck as it dangled over the railing. The man was able to get out of the vehicle and successfully extricate his daughter moments before the truck went up in flames. Both the man and his daughter reportedly sustained only minor injuries, if any.

The truck then went over the railing, landing on top of the sedan, killing the driver. The off-roading vehicle became detached from the trailer and was hit by a passing pick-up truck on the interstate. 

One of the vehicles struck a power pole at the scene of the accident, causing live wires to be exposed and creating an environment in which it was dangerous for emergency responders to attempt to reach any of the vehicles until the electricity was able to be turned off.

Emergency responders then had to disentangle the sedan which was fully pinned underneath of the Ford. Once they were finally able to separate the two vehicles, they discovered four bodies inside of the sedan. Officials said that two of the deceased occupants appeared to be adults, one was a child, and the fourth fatality was a dog that was also found inside the car.

An official from the Nevada Highway Patrol stated that the VIN number, the license plates, and everything else inside the car had been completely torched. As a result, the identities of the deceased victims are currently unknown.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victims at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.

Bakersfield, CA (August 13, 2020) – The driver of one vehicle was killed and a second driver sustained injuries of an unspecified nature on the afternoon of Thursday, August 13th in a traffic accident in Southwest Bakersfield, according to a local news source.

Local law enforcement officers stated that the deadly collision took place at about 2:25 p.m. along Berkshire Road when two vehicles, one of which was driving the wrong way down the street, collided with one another.

According to official reports, a sedan was traveling eastbound along Berkshire Road when, for reasons that have yet to be determined, it swerved into the oncoming lanes of traffic, where it crashed into a westbound pick-up truck that was pulling a trailer behind it.

Emergency medical personnel who were dispatched to the crash site pronounced the driver of the sedan deceased at the scene. The identity of the deceased victim is not being disclosed as police are awaiting the notification of his next of kin.

The driver of the pick-up truck endured injuries that were classified as non-life-threatening and they were transported via ambulance to a local medical facility for prompt medical attention.

A portion of Berkshire Road was shut down in order to facilitate an investigation by local law enforcement officers into cause and liability in this accident. Officials have stated that they believe speed played a part in the crash.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.

Kern Co, CA (August 13, 2020) – At least one victim was killed on the afternoon of Thursday, August 13th in a rollover accident in which a pick-up truck was involved along State Route Highway 58 in the unincorporated community of Mojave.

The accident was brought to the attention of officers from the California Highway Patrol at around 1:00 p.m. near the off-ramp for Exit 172 when the driver of a grey or white Chevrolet pick-up truck rolled over in front of the highway exit. 

Before the actual crash took place, other drivers in the area had notified the California Highway Patrol of a driver whom they had witnessed swerving in and out of surrounding traffic and almost crashing into three additional vehicles.

It is unclear at this time exactly how many people were inside of the pick-up, but a medical helicopter was seen at the scene of the crash and the Kern County Fire Department also responded. 

At least one victim was pronounced dead after the accident, but there is no additional information currently available as cause and liability in this accident are still under professional inquiry by crash investigators from the California Highway Patrol.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Driver error is the number one cause of California car accidents, an overwhelming portion of which takes place at night.

Saratoga, CA (August 12, 2020) – A deadly vehicle collision took place at the intersection of Saratoga Avenue and Highway 85 on the morning of Wednesday, August 12th. 

As indicated in a report published by a local news source, a grey pick-up truck and a white sedan collided with one another in the intersection, for reasons that have yet to be determined, at around 11:20 a.m.

Local law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel were both dispatched to the scene of the accident. On their arrival, they discovered that the sedan was fully engulfed in flames and lodged in a roadside embankment. 

In the meantime, the pick-up truck supposedly received serious damage to its front-end as a result of the impact.

Attending first responders promptly administered medical care to the injured victims. Officials on-site stated that two occupants from each of the vehicles involved were transported to various trauma centers in the area.

According to preliminary reports, one of the crash victims from the sedan, an elderly man in his 70s, was pronounced dead a short while later. The name of the deceased victims is still undisclosed as crash investigators are still awaiting confirmation and the notification of his next of kin.

Officers also said that two eyewitnesses to the collision also underwent on-site emergency care for injuries that were classified as minor and were released shortly afterward.

The identities of the injured victims have yet to be disclosed.

Local law enforcement officers closed off the lanes in both directions on Saratoga Avenue in order to facilitate an investigation into establishing cause and liability for the accident, both of which are still undetermined at this time.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.

San Benito Co, CA (August 12, 2020) – One person was killed and another person sustained critical injuries during an accident involving a single-vehicle along Highway 25.

According to a report published by a local news source, initial investigations into the crash revealed that a Toyota Tacoma that was heading northbound on Highway 25 attempted to make a righthand turn off of the roadway. The abrupt maneuver caused the driver of the Toyota to lose control of the vehicle, swerve off of the roadway and crash into a nearby tree.

Emergency medical personnel and local law enforcement officers were both dispatched to the scene of the accident. On their arrival, they located the driver, a 21-year-old male, who was trapped inside of his vehicle. The victim was extricated and transported to Natividad where he died a short while later. 

Officials involved with the crash investigation continue to withhold the identity of the deceased victim until they receive confirmation and his next of kin has been notified.

Paramedics working the scene also stated that the passenger, a 20-year-old male from Morgan Hill, sustained critical injuries caused by the collision. He was transported via ambulance to Natividad for emergency medical treatment.

Due to the fact that this accident is still under the professional inquiry of local law enforcement officers in an attempt to establish cause and liability, no further information has been made available.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.

Rancho Cucamonga, CA (August 12, 2020) – A fatal accident involving a pedestrian took place on the night of Tuesday, August 11th along Highway 60. 

A source from within the California Highway Patrol stated that, at about 11:45 p.m., a tractor-trailer struck a male pedestrian in the westbound lanes of SR-60 at the intersection for Euclid Avenue. The cause of this deadly accident has not yet been established by crash investigators.

Emergency medical personnel reported to the scene of the accident. On their arrival, they administered critical aid to the victim whom they discovered lying in the street.

Officers from the California Highway Patrol later confirmed the pedestrian had died due to injuries he sustained during the impact. His identity remains undisclosed at this time, as local authorities are still awaiting confirmation and the notification of his next of kin.

Officers from the California Highway Patrol are carrying out a professional inquiry in order to establish cause and liability in this accident, so no additional details pertaining to the collision or the circumstances surrounding it are being divulged at this time. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Anaheim, CA (August 12, 2020) – A pregnant pedestrian died following a car accident involving an alleged drunk driver on Katella Avenue on the evening of Tuesday, August 11th.

According to a story published by a local news source, the fatal collision took place at around 7:35 p.m. just east of Euclid Street.

As stated by responding law enforcement officers, a white Jeep SUV traveling down Katella Avenue in Anaheim hopped the curb, drove along the sidewalk for approximately 300 feet, and then hit a 23-year-old woman from Anaheim who was almost nine months pregnant.

Official reports indicate that the victim and her husband were walking down the sidewalk when the SUV struck her. The vehicle then swerved across Bayless Street and crashed into a car wash.

Emergency medical personnel also reported to the scene of the accident. On their arrival, they discovered the pregnant woman lying on the sidewalk, having sustained life-threatening injuries caused by the impact. She was transported to UC Irvine Medical Center, where she died a short while later.

The identity of the victim has not been yet made known as officials are currently awaiting the notification of her next of kin. Paramedics that were on the scene confirmed that the newborn was in the hospital in the neonatal ICU unit.

In the meantime, additional emergency responders transported the 40-year-old female driver of the SUV to a local medical facility for treatment of injuries that were classified as minor. Crash investigators believe the woman was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs when the incident took place and arrested her on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Police also revealed that the woman has two previous convictions for DUIs and, at the time of the incident, was driving on a suspended license.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.

The incident occurred at approximately 3:00 p.m. on the afternoon of August 10 on Interstate 15 near the US-93 split in the southbound lanes.

The Isuzu’s driver was pronounced deceased at the scene of the wreck. He has been identified as Thomas Burger, 34. 

The reason the crash took place is currently being investigated by local law enforcement officials. 

The area of the roadway where the collision took place was blocked off for a period of time after the crash, though it has since been reopened.
