Rancho Murieta, CA — Three individuals were hospitalized following a collision near Rancho Murieta on Wednesday night, May 22, 2024, according to ABC10. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that the collision occurred around 8:30 PM along Scott Road, north of Latrobe Road.

The incident involved a Toyota Camry driven by a man traveling northbound on Scott Road with two female passengers, one seated in the front and wearing a seatbelt, the other was in the back without a seatbelt.

According to CHP, the driver was traveling at an unsafe speed when he lost control of the vehicle, causing it to veer off the roadway and collide with a tree. The woman in the backseat sustained major injuries and was airlifted to a hospital for urgent medical treatment. The driver and the front-seat passenger suffered moderate injuries and were also transported to a hospital.

At this time, it remains unclear whether alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash. The CHP continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident.

Passenger Liability

The liability insurance that drivers carry is not just meant to cover accidental harm caused to those outside of the vehicle. A driver is responsible for the safety of those in their vehicle as well. While making a wrongful death or personal injury claim against someone who knew the victim personally may prove emotionally challenging, the financial burdens following a vehicular accident can be hefty.

A good personal injury attorney can help grieving families seek proper compensation for their loss by navigating these tricky issues, as well as negotiating on the victim’s behalf with insurance companies, who routinely work to minimize the payout of any claim they cannot deny.
