Elk Grove Wrong Way Crash

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove auto accident attorney. One person has passed away in a wrong-way vehicular collision involving four vehicles in Elk Grove on the night of Wednesday, November 30, 2016.

What Happened?

Witnesses observed a man driving in a white pickup truck running red light traffic signals and swerving his vehicle at the intersection of Laguna Boulevard and Bruceville Road. Shortly after, officers from the Elk Grove Police Department observed the same motorist traveling the wrong way on a one-way roadway at about 10:00 pm. This happened moments before the driver crashed into three other vehicles in the vicinity of Elk Grove Boulevard and Wymark Drive. Authorities indicated that the motorist of the vehicle that was traveling the wrong way had fled from the scene of the accident.

The following video displays the severe extent of the wrong-way collision. As you can see in the video, a tow truck was loading the vehicles involved in the automobile accident in order to tow them from the scene. One of the vehicles, a 2- door champagne Toyota Tacoma, sustained major body damage which prompted the airbag deployment in the steering wheel. The wrong-way driver of the white pickup was identified as 41-year-old Daniel Landeros from Elk Grove.
