Major Injury Crash on Highway 99 in Chico

Chico, California –The California Highway Patrol is investigating a major injury crash on Highway 99 in Chico that left a man with severe injuries.

A female driver was operating a truck heading north on Highway 99 near the on-ramp off East First Avenue.

CHP said the driver attempted to make a lane change when she noticed two objects in the middle of the highway and tried to avoid hitting them but was unsuccessful.

The truck lost control and flipped, landing on one of the trees off the highway embankment.

The crash happened at about 7:30 a.m. on August 14.

Firefighters responded to the crash and attended to the victims.

A man, who was a passenger in the truck, suffered serious injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital by an ambulance.

The truck driver sustained minor injuries.

Authorities said alcohol and drugs did not appear to have played a role in the crash.

One lane of the highway was closed following the incident.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
