Fatal Collision on 80 Freeway Closes All Lanes
Several vehicles were involved in a deadly accident in Dixon on Tuesday morning, May 10th.
A Ford F-450 and big rig were among those involved that collided just before 7 a.m. within the westbound lanes of the 80 Freeway.
Per CHP, the vehicles, work equipment, buckets, and wheelbarrows were left blocking all traffic lanes.
Sand was also spread over the freeway from one of the vehicles.
At least one unidentified person died as a result.
There was also a SigAlert issued due to the closure of all westbound lanes for a period of time.
Investigators are actively working to determine fault.
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.
