East Sacramento Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer


East Sacramento is more than just McKinley Park or the Fabulous ’40s, though that’s what most of us think of when we think of East Sacramento. Ronald Regan and Nancy, Biba Caggiano, and many other famous people have called this area home. There’s a pretty good map and description of East Sacramento at Citi-Data East Sacramento.

Car Accident Statistics in Sacramento

Data shows that Sacramento has some of the highest crash rates of any large city in California. A study of eight recent years of car crashes involving deaths and injuries shows Sacramento usually ranks poorly among big cities in several traffic categories, especially accidents involving alcohol, where Sacramento’s crash rate was highest in four of the eight years.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, Sacramento also ranked first in five out of eight years on accidents that included a combination of speed, alcohol, hit-and-runs, and night driving.

Children are among the victims of an uneven number of accidents. In 2016, 40 children under age 15 were killed or injured while crossing or walking on Sacramento streets. That was the highest rate among California’s large cities. That same year, 29 children were killed or injured while riding a bicycle, which is the second-worst among big cities in the state.
