Wrong-Way Crash Reported on Yerba Buena Road and Highway 101 

One person sustained injuries from a wrong-way collision in San Jose Sunday night.

According to CHP, the wreck occurred at 11:29 p.m. on September 25th. 

One of the involved vehicles was traveling the wrong way on Highway 101, causing a head-on collision with another vehicle. 

The crash took place at the Yerba Buena Road off-ramp. 

The identity of the person injured has yet to be disclosed at this time. 

Further details will be provided once an investigation is concluded.

Although crashes involving wrong-way driving account for only 3% of motor vehicle accidents, they usually have a higher fatality rate as they are often head-on collisions.

According to NHTSA, more than a quarter (25%) of accident-related deaths are linked to the use of alcohol. With that being said, according to the CDC, there are 30 people that are killed everyday in a car accident as a result of an alcohol-impaired driver. That is equivalent to one death every 50 minutes.  

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.
