1 killed, 1 injured by car crash on Highway 242 in Concord
One person died and another suffered major injuries in a solo-vehicle crash on state Highway 242 in Concord early Sunday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported at 1:54 a.m. on southbound Highway 242 near the Concord Avenue off-ramp.
A blue Nissan Sentra struck the guardrail of the off-ramp, causing the right front passenger in the Nissan to be ejected from the vehicle. First responders arriving at the scene took the passenger to a hospital, while the Nissan driver was pronounced dead at the scene, CHP officials said.
The name of the driver who died was not immediately available from the Contra Costa County coroner's office.
Although the exact details of the accident remain unclear, it is evident that none of the individuals involved were wearing seat belts. If they had been wearing seat belts, there is a strong likelihood that they would still be alive today. Unfortunately, this incident was a solo crash that resulted in the tragic loss of the driver's life, while the passenger was transported to a local hospital.
The passenger in this vehicle may have a potential legal case and the option to file a claim against the driver's car insurance. In the event that the driver did not possess insurance, or if the passenger had Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UIM), they could potentially seek compensation from their own insurance policy to cover their personal injuries.
For those without UIM coverage, there may still be a possibility of coverage if they reside in a household with someone who has such coverage. It's essential to explore these options if you have sustained injuries due to your driver's negligence.
If you find yourself in such a situation and would like to discuss your case further, please don't hesitate to contact our office for a consultation.
