Corvette Crashes into Farming Truck on I-5 Freeway Near Woodland
(June 18, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol reported a crash involving multiple vehicles Saturday morning. The large crash occurred at approximately 3:05 a.m. on the Vietnam Veterans Bridge near Woodland. The accident reportedly involved a Corvette that was evidently speeding well over 80 mph when it struck the rear-end of a farming truck. The severe impact of the crash caused the truck, which had an attached forklift, to hit a guardrail. Reportedly, the Corvette almost immediately went up in flames while approximately 50 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the truck out onto the roadway.
Paramedics swiftly arrived on the scene to assist the victims of the crash. The driver of the Corvette suffered unspecified injuries and was promptly rushed to a local hospital for treatment. The truck driver, who suffered serious injuries was transported to UC Davis Medical Center. Although the speed of the Corvette is a pretty solid indicator of what caused the crash, the accident is currently being further investigated. Our hearts are with both victims of this unfortunate accident as they recover from their injuries.

Any ongoing investigation will certainly look to cement the already assumed cause of the crash, and properly determine negligence in order to establish who will be liable for injuries. When serious injuries result from someone’s reckless behavior behind the wheel, the emotional and financial consequences are most often detrimental for the victim. If the cause of the crash is determined to be due to negligence, there will likely be reasonable cause for a personal injury lawsuit.
The most important thing for every victim to remain focused on after an accident is their own health and recovery. Nevertheless, many victims often decide to fight for compensation. There is no wonder why victims seek compensation as the cost of hospital bills, current and future medical expenses, and lost wages typically add up to quite a lot. However, it is always the victims’ choice to file a claim for compensation.
