San Francisco trucking accident lawyers Michael and Michelle Mandel help people who have suffered injuries as the result of semi or big rig accidents. As reported by SFGate, Four people were killed in a crash on state Highway 12 in unincorporated Napa County a California Highway Patrol officer said.
The crash was reported at about 8:20 a.m. on Highway 12 east of Kirkland Ranch Road, near American Canyon, CHP Officer Jaret Paulson said.
Paulson said the people who died were two men and two women in a Subaru Forester. Their names have not been released but Paulson said their ages range from about 20 to 80.
He said a big-rig was traveling west on Highway 12 behind the Subaru and a commercial truck just before the accident happened, Paulson said.
Traffic began to slow or stop, and the big-rig did not stop in time and crashed into the back of the Subaru, pushing it into oncoming traffic and into the path of an eastbound big-rig, he said.
The eastbound big-rig struck the Subaru, pushing it about 200 feet up the road before it came to a stop.
Four occupants of the Subaru were pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the big-rig involved in the initial collision was transported to a hospital with minor to moderate injuries, Paulson said.
That big-rig also clipped the commercial truck before coming to rest, but the driver and passenger in the truck were uninjured, he said. The driver of the eastbound big-rig was also unhurt.
