Sacramento, CA (January 20, 2022) – A head-on collision on Highway 16 in Sacramento County sent two people to the hospital, according to the California Highway Patrol’s East Sacramento office.

A crash occurred at 6:35 a.m. just east of Latrobe Road on Jackson Road. Highway 16 was blocked by a Chevy Malibu behind a school bus heading east, the CHP reported. After passing the school bus over solid double yellow lines, the Malibu hit a westbound Chevy Spark head-on.

After the Spark overturned in the roadway, debris hit a Chevy Silverado that was traveling westbound behind the Spark, according to CHP. There were no students or drivers on the bus when the Malibu hit it.

The driver of the Malibu and Spark was transported to a hospital with moderate injuries. Both the Silverado driver and school bus driver were not hurt.

After the crash, all lanes of Highway 16 were closed, but they have since been reopened.

The CHP reminded motorists not to pass over solid double yellow lines following the accident.

Car Accidents Attorney’s in California

Car accidents are one of the most devastating things a person can go through. Not only are they forced to deal with having their day completely interrupted, but they are often left with painful injuries that demand extensive medical treatment. In the state of California, more than 150,000 people are hospitalized annually as a result of injuries sustained in traffic-related incidents.

These painful injuries have an overwhelming impact on the health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are they left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial burdens victims and their families face are often substantial. Having to go through extensive medical treatment, months of therapy, and repeat surgeries can have stacking consequences on victims for several years following their accidents.
