Two Adults Hospitalized After Ford Expedition Rollover Accident on I-80 in Auburn Placer County, California

PLACER COUNTY, Calif. — A rollover crash on I-80 in Auburn left two adults hospitalized on Monday afternoon.

The incident occurred when a 30-year-old woman from Stockton was traveling westbound on I-80 near Ophir Road, and her Ford Expedition struck the center divider, causing the vehicle to overturn.

The driver sustained major injuries and was transported to the hospital for medical care. A 39-year-old passenger was also taken to the hospital due to a fractured leg. Additionally, three children, aged 9, 8, and 2, were transported to the hospital as a precaution.

No further information was immediately available.

The Ford Expedition Needs to be Inspected to Determine if Ford is Responsible for the Injuries Suffered in this Crash.

Many people will look at this crash and assume the driver of the SUV is to blame for the injuries suffered in this crash. We do not know if that is true or not. However, many times, people who are injured in rollover accidents are injured because the SUV fails to provide them with sufficient protection.

This can happen when the SUV’s roof crushes the occupants of the vehicle or when the SUV’s seatbelts fail to restrain the occupants to the seat. Both of these have been a big problem in Ford SUVs over the years. We have handled over 300 rollover accidents just like this for clients injured and killed across the nation.

The women injured in this accident can learn more about Ford defects on our site. Or, they can contact our firm for a free consultation to determine if they can recover compensation from Ford for the injuries suffered in this crash.

I extend my best wishes to all affected by this accident and hope for a full and speedy recovery.
