Serious Injuries Sustained in Rollover Crash on Highway 99 in Modesto
(June 14, 2018) The California Highway Patrol reported that a Thursday morning crash on Highway 99 at Tuolumne Boulevard resulted in one seriously injured child. The collision happened around 10:55 a.m. and the vehicles involved reportedly blocked lanes 1 and 2 for an unspecified period of time.
According to a witness who called 911 operators, one of the vehicles involved in the collision had been swerving on the road before the crash. Unfortunately, a child had ended up trapped inside the vehicle after it rolled over during the accident. Paramedics were, fortunately, able to free the young child and immediately transported the boy to a local hospital. At this time, it is still unknown if there were other people injured in the crash.
Reportedly, two other vehicles had stopped in the center divider o assist those who were hurt in the accident. Currently, it is unclear whether or not this was a crash due to mechanical failure or one persons’ negligence, or if there were any other vehicles involved in the crash. An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
Our deepest and warmest wishes are now with the child who was injured in this accident.
Car Accident Attorney
All car accidents yield some sort of damage, injury, or serious concern. Although any crash involving children is especially horrific. When a negligent driver injures someone else, particularly a child, the irresponsible party will likely be punished to the farthest extent of the law. Negligent drivers far too many car accidents each day, and in the event that the investigation turns out to prove a negligent driver was responsible, there will be grounds for a serious personal injury claim.
Many victims pursue claims for compensation simply because of the expenses that arise after an accident. Furthermore, most parents of children who are injured because of an irresponsible driver will pursue litigation because there is nothing more tragic than the injury or loss of a child. Of course, it is always up to the victim or victims’ parent(s), in this case, to file a claim for compensation.
