At least five people have claims to pursue a personal injury lawsuit with the guidance of a car injury lawyer following a two-vehicle accident in Murphys, California that left them injured. The incident took place on Tuesday, April 14, as confirmed by the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department.
In a statement released by the California Highway Patrol, officers said the crash took place on Highway 4, in the Northwood Drive area at about 6:35 pm.
Investigators determined that a Subaru, driven by Sky Harris, 38, was traveling through the highway when he reached a road ramp.
Just as the driver negotiated a left turn at the ramp, an oncoming minivan collided with his vehicle, causing major damages. The motorist suffered minor injuries in the crash.
The operator of the minivan, identified as Carlos Vigil, 32, of Arnold, was not harmed in the traffic collision. However, four children, who were traveling as passengers in the van were seriously injured.
Emergency responders transported the juveniles to UC Davis and Adventist Health Sonora for treatment of injuries ranging from minor to moderate.
Harris failed field sobriety tests and was taken into police custody on suspicion of driving under the influence. He is being held at the Calaveras County Jail.
The incident is still under investigation by the CHP.
It is important that victims of car accidents consult a car injury lawyer to ensure they are duly compensated for damages and expenses incurred as a result of the crash.
