Reportedly, Maurice Chevalier is responsible for one of the most-cited quips about aging: “Old age isn’t so bad when you consider the alternative.”  There is immense value in age and our oldest community members have much to offer and much to teach.  However, there are also a number of concerns raised as growing numbers join the 65+ set.  Our Santa Rosa injury lawyer understands that concerns over the safety of older drivers will become increasingly important in the coming years, but that doesn’t alter the fact that this is a difficult and sensitive topic for all involved.

Sunday Morning Crash Seriously Injures Elderly Santa Rosa Driver

On Sunday morning, a crash in Rincon Valley left an 85-year-old driver seriously injured according to a report in the Press Democrat.  Police believe the elderly Santa Rosa woman was at a stop sign on Benicia Drive when she turned her Prius left onto Montecito Boulevard and into the path of an oncoming pickup truck.  Police believe the truck driver had the right-of-way.  They do not believe that alcohol or speed factored into the collision.

All car crashes are frightening, but rollovers are particularly terrifying.  Rollovers are particularly violent and particularly deadly.  They leave occupants feeling particularly helpless, a feeling that often persists long after the event itself.  When a rollover crash is caused by someone’s negligent or wrongful actions and it results in death or injury of another, our Santa Rosa rollover crash attorney is prepared to file a wrongful death or personal injury claim on behalf of the injured and/or surviving relatives.  These claims seek to hold the at-fault party accountable and provide much needed compensation to those impacted by the terrifying event.

Rollover Accident Claims Life in Lake County

The Press Democrat reports that a 35 year-old woman died in a Lake County rollover crash on Sunday.  CHP investigators say the woman was a passenger in a 1996 Honda Accord that was travelling south on Highway 39 near the Hill Road undercrossing when the vehicle started to drift towards the dirt median.  Apparently, the driver overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle which proceeded to skid across the southbound lanes before hitting a curb and dirt embankment.  The force of the impact caused the Accord to roll and slide off the road, landing on its roof on the adjoining frontage road.
