Investigators are working to piece together all of the details of a multi-vehicle crash that occurred in Contra Costa on Monday.
It was around 3:20 a.m. when the collision occurred on Highway 4.
A total of 5 vehicles were involved in the wreck on August 29th.
The events leading up to the accident, however, remain unclear at this time.
Firefighters had to extricate two people who became pinned inside their vehicles and one person was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Further details will be provided once an investigation is concluded.
Multi-vehicle collisions are typically more common in busy intersections or highways. Speeding, weather, distractions, and drowsy or intoxicated driving are main reasons negligent drivers cause these types of wrecks.
When it comes to filing a claim with this type of collision, it gets difficult. This is because multiple vehicles are involved so determining liability can take much longer. Multi-vehicle collision claims are more complex due to numerous victims, multiple negligent drivers, cross-claims and insufficient insurance.
If your injuries are caused by the negligence of a third party you may be entitled to compensation.
It is also important to remember that in the state of California a person involved in a car accident who has sustained injuries has to file a claim within two years of the accident.
