An accident near the area of Appian Way did damage to two vehicles last night.
The incident happened at around 7 pm Tuesday. A Toyota Camry and one other vehicle were driving along Interstate 80 going west. Details are sketchy on why the crash actually transpired, but as a result of the collision, one of the vehicles reportedly rolled over and onto its roof, which was crushed in the process. Both cars were thrown from the roadway itself and came to a stop next to the shoulder on a nearby hill.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the incident. According to them, passersby worked to free a person who remained stuck in the Camry. Early word suggests that no one from the other vehicle was stuck. Officials have said that no one from either automobile was seriously injured in the incident.
With officers arriving at the scene, one of the lanes going west had to be shut down. This caused a minor traffic jam, and it’s unclear how long it took for officers to reopen the road completely.
As a car accident lawyer in San Francisco, I’m sad to see an accident like this hit so close to home. Any number of things can contribute to a potentially injurious accident, and we all need to be aware of our surroundings at any and all times. Take my word as a San Francisco personal injury attorney: it’s far better to be cautious than to suffer a detrimental injury.
