Several Hurt in Multi-Vehicle Crash on Holman Highway in Pacific Grove

Several Injured in Pacific Grove Truck Accident on Holman Highway 68 near Skyline Forest Drive

Pacific Grove, California (April 23, 2020) – Several people sustained injuries Wednesday morning following a traffic collision involving four vehicles in Pacific Grove, Monterey.

The accident took place at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 22 on Holman Highway 68, just east of Skyline Forest Drive and near the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

Authorities said a Penske box truck and three passenger vehicles were involved in the collision. Details of what led up to the crash at this time are unknown.

Firefighters along with the paramedics responded to the scene and extricated a woman who was pinned inside one of the vehicles.

At least two people were transported to a local hospital. One of the patients had major injuries and was airlifted to another hospital for further treatment.

The crash remains under investigation.

According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary to clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.

What to Do At the Accident Scene

Nobody is ever prepared for an accident. However, knowing what to do in case you are involved in the accident is very crucial. The following steps will help you ensure your safety and the safety of others.

  1. Stay at the scene and don’t panic.
  2. Check for injuries and immediately call for an ambulance if anyone is hurt.
  3. Notify the police even if no one is injured. The police will examine the scene and document the accident. At this point, it is important to record accurate information. You can later request a police report.
  4. If the accident is minor, it is advisable to move the vehicles to the shoulder and turn on your vehicle’s hazard lights to ensure the safety of other motorists.
  5. Gather information about the other drivers involved in the accident. Also, talk to witnesses and get their information.
  6. If possible, take photos of the damage to your car and the surrounding area.
  7. Do not admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone. Do not sign any papers unless requested by the police.
  8. Do not leave the accident scene until the police have left. 

After leaving the accident scene,

  1. Contact your insurance company as soon as possible.
  2. Get a copy of the accident report from the police.
  3. Get a property damage valuation.
  4. If you were injured in the accident, keep detailed notes of your injuries and track your medical treatment.
  5. Contact a reputable personal injury attorney to protect your rights.
  6. Seek legal advice before you contact your insurer to discuss your car accident claim and compensation for your personal injuries. A qualified attorney will help you recover the maximum amount of damages.
