Roseville, CA – A 23-year-old man from Rocklin lost his life in a Placer County crash on Monday, June 17, 2024, according to ABC10.

The collision occurred just before 1 PM on Baseline Road near South Brewer Road. The incident began when a driver in a Volvo XC90, a 57-year-old man from Plumas Lake, slowed to a stop in preparation for a left-hand turn into a private driveway. Several vehicles had lined up behind the Volvo, waiting for the turn.

As the Volvo driver initiated his turn, a 23-year-old man driving a Nissan Rogue approached the stopped vehicles at a high rate of speed. The Nissan driver attempted to bypass the stopped traffic by crossing over the solid double yellow lines into the opposing traffic lane. Unfortunately, as the Volvo driver began his left turn, the Nissan collided with the front of the Volvo.

The impact caused the Nissan to veer off the roadway and overturn several times. Tragically, the driver of the Nissan, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle and sustained fatal injuries. The identity of the deceased has not yet been released by authorities.

The driver of the Volvo was unharmed in the collision.

At this time, it remains unclear whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. The CHP continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and urges any witnesses to come forward with information.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. One crucial way a personal injury attorney can assist grieving families is by determining legal liability after the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If another party is found to hold some responsibility for the death, the family may be eligible to file a Wrongful Death claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. This claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for the deceased’s dependents.
