Dolores Nelson Dies in Granite Bay Accident at Auburn Folsom and Eureka Roads

Granite Bay, California – Dolores Nelson, 92, of Folsom, was killed in a Granite Bay accident on Auburn Folsom and Eureka roads Tuesday afternoon.

At around 1:20 p.m., CHP said Nelson was driving a dark red 2017 Toyota Prius southbound on Auburn Folsom when she stopped for a traffic light at the intersection.

A 2016 Volkswagen Jetta traveling behind the Prius failed to stop and crashed into its rear.

The impact of the accident forced the Toyota across the sidewalk and through a concrete perimeter wall.

Nelson and the other driver, a 36-year-old, were both rushed to Sutter Roseville Medical Center with major injuries.

Nelson later succumbed to her injuries at hospital.

CHP said alcohol or drugs were not believed to be factors in the collision.

The investigation is ongoing.

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.”
