Linda, CA – On Sunday night, April 28, 2024, a 44-year-old motorist from Olivehurst lost his life after veering off a Yuba County freeway and into a canal for unknown reasons, according to the Sacramento Bee.

The driver was discovered just before midnight following a call received by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) reporting a car had driven off southbound State Route 70, just past Feather River Boulevard.

Investigators found that the 1993 Chevrolet had drifted off the roadway to the right, traversed through a barbed wire fence, and collided into a canal parallel to the freeway.

CHP stated that the cause of the crash remains under investigation. The identity of the deceased is expected to be confirmed by Yuba County’s coroner.

Liability in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a solo-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
