Oakland, CA (August 04, 2020) – A multi-vehicle accident that involved several cars and a dump truck took place on the morning of Tuesday, August 4th at the Interstate 880 Freeway and Interstate 80 Freeway interchange in the city of Oakland.

According to a preliminary incident report, the multi-car collision, which caused injuries to those involved, was brought to the attention of officers from the California Highway Patrol at about 6:40 a.m. 

The wreckage from the accident caused the two righthand northbound lanes of the Interstate 880 Freeway to be inaccessible.

A total of six vehicles were involved in the crash. These vehicles included a Nissan that had sustained significant damage and a dump truck. 

Along with local law enforcement officers, emergency medical personnel were dispatched to the site of the accident where they provided transportation to at least one victim who had sustained severe injuries to a local trauma center for emergency medical care. 

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

Napa County, CA (August 04, 2020) – 28-year-old Katherine Elizabeth MacMahon, a resident of Napa, has recently been identified as the female pedestrian who was killed as she attempted to make her way across Highway 29 in the early morning hours of Friday, July 31st in Napa County.

The accident, which took place at the intersection of Highway 29 and Wine Country Avenue in north Napa, was brought to the attention of local law enforcement officers at about 5:15 a.m. 

The Napa County Coroner’s office, responsible for identifying the victim, stated that MacMahon was walking across Highway 29 when she was struck by no less than two passing cars.

Officers from the Napa County Sheriff’s Office added that not one of the vehicles that struck the victim pulled over after the accident. Two of the drivers involved and one eyewitness, however, have since come forward and made contact with the appropriate authorities.

Crash investigators who were tasked with determining cause and liability in the accident have said that there have been no indications that drugs or alcohol were involved in this accident in any way.

The northbound lanes of Highway 29 were sealed off for approximately five hours as local law enforcement officers led their investigation.

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

Fresno, CA (August 03, 2020) – 29-year-old Sevak Korkotyan, a resident of Fresno, was killed and the two passengers riding in his vehicle sustained injuries early on the morning of Sunday, August 2nd when his BMW crashed into a concrete barrier at the Highway 99/180 interchange in the city of Fresno at about 12:30 p.m.

Korkotyan, who was operating the BMW, passed away at Community Regional Medical Center following the accident. The vehicle was also occupied in the front seat by a 23-year-old woman and in the back seat was a man, both of whom were critically injured during the accident according to a report filed by officers from the California Highway Patrol.

A preliminary investigation has indicated that both the driver of the BMW X5 SUV and his male passenger did not have their seat belts on at the time of the collision. As a result, the male passenger sustained severe injuries and the female passenger, who was the only vehicle occupant who was buckled up, sustained moderate injuries.

Police have reported that the BMW was heading down the southbound Highway 99 connector ramp onto the eastbound Highway 180 when, for reasons that have yet to be determined, it crashed into the concrete barrier wall which reportedly caused it to flip over and catch fire as the driver was thrown from the car.

The male passenger exited the BMW and attempted to flee the scene of the accident but was located a short while later by officers from the Fresno Police Department.

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

Sacramento, CA (August 03, 2020) – An accident that produced injuries to at least one of the people involved was reported on the morning of Monday, August 3rd.

The two-vehicle collision involved a tractor-trailer and a black car that collided with one another along Interstate 5 in Sacramento.

A report filed by officers from the California Highway Patrol indicates that the accident took place at about 6:10 a.m. in the vicinity of Arena Boulevard.

Emergency medical personnel were dispatched to the scene of the accident where at least one crash victim received emergency care for critical injuries. No additional details were made readily available. 

Based on the supposed seriousness of the injuries, however, the victim was most likely transported to a local trauma center for medical aid.

The circumstances surrounding the incident have not yet been determined, but both cause and liability are currently under professional inquiry by crash investigators from the California Highway Patrol.

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

Motorcycle Wrecks in California

Salinas CA - One Person Killed in Fatal Motorcycle Crash on Williams RdCalifornia motorcycle accidents are unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence. Motorcycle riders are some of the most vulnerable travelers on the road at any given time. California, with its year-round warm weather and high population, has one of the highest motorcycle-accident fatality rates in the nation.

On average, the Golden State sees approximately 15,000 motorcycle accidents per year. Approximately a quarter of all California motorcycle collisions are caused by rider intoxication, and about 60% of these accidents occur after sunset. The most common reason for motorcycle collisions to occur in California is speeding, followed by intoxication and improper turning. These are all forms of driver negligence, which is the nation’s leading cause for motor vehicle collisions.

Oftentimes, injured motorcycle accident victims and their families are faced with debilitating pain that has a lasting, negative impact on their emotional and physical well-being.
