Highway 9 Crash Leaves 1 with Major Injuries
Multiple vehicles collided on Sunday afternoon in Saratoga, resulting in severe injuries.
Per CHP, the wreck took place around 2 p.m. on Highway 9 at Pierce Road.
It was reported that a Toyota Rav4, motorcycle, and third vehicle were involved in the collision.
Due to the impact, two people ended up in the roadway following the crash.
A 29-year-old woman suffered a broken leg and was hospitalized for treatment.
The Toyota also acquired side damage and a broken front tire and had to be towed away.
An active investigation remains underway to determine liability.
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.
