At around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 18, several people were injured in a crash involving at least sixty vehicles on northbound Interstate 5 near Yreka. Occurring on an extremely icy span of the highway between Anderson Grade and Collier Rest Area, the accident caused the closure of all lanes in both directions as multiple emergency response agencies assisted motorists, including Cal Fire, the California Highway Patrol, and local fire departments, as well as air and ground ambulances.
“After a crash causing injury, the victims may file personal injury claims against the party determined to be at-fault for the accident,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis. “Such claims will ensure victims are compensated for the cost of their recoveries, including for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.”
Yreka accounted for 1 of the 7 fatalities and 32 of the 285 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in collisions that occurred in Siskiyou County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Siskiyou 17th out of 58 counties with similarly sized populations for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions that year; 1st is the worst possible placement.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to those who were injured in the crash involving at least sixty vehicles.
