Ambe Hernandez and Gary Vroman Yolo: Car Accident Near Yolo On Interstate 5 Freeway Injured Ambe Hernandez and Gary Lee Vroman

YOLO, CALIFORNIA (January 29, 2019) – Two people identified as Ambe Hernandez and Gary Lee Vroman were seriously injured in a car accident when they were rear-ended by another vehicle on the Interstate 5 Freeway. 

The 1997 Nissan that Ambe Hernandez and Gary Lee Vroman were in was traveling in the slow lane of the freeway due to a flat tire. A 2018 Nissan that was behind them was unable to slow down in time and rear-ended their vehicle. 

Both victims were taken to the UC Davis Medical Center in order to receive treatment. An investigation remains ongoing at this point .

Liability In Rear-End Collisions

Every driver should be maintaining a safe distance with the vehicle ahead of them. According to the California DMV Handbook, “Scanning your surroundings (keeping your eyes moving) includes keeping a safe distance around your vehicle. When another driver makes a mistake, you need time to react. Give yourself this reaction time by keeping enough space on all sides of your vehicle. This space will give you room to brake or maneuver if necessary.” In most circumstances, there is a presumption of negligence when one driver rear-ends another vehicle. 

Rear-end collisions almost always occur when one driver is following a vehicle too closely, distracted or speeding. Even if the vehicle in front of you stops abruptly you should have sufficient space to brake or maneuver. Victim’s of rear-end collisions can suffer from a variety of injuries including spinal injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Those who are injured in car accidents are able to seek financial compensation through a bodily injury claim. A car accident attorney can investigate your case free of charge and let you know what your options are.
