Deadly I-5 accident in Sacramento Caused by a Drunk Driver

A Sacramento resident was killed and three other people injured after a drunk driver hit a wall and light pole then walked into traffic as reported by the California Highway Patrol.

The multi-car accident happened just after 4:00 a.m. when Timothy Bolton struck a safety barrier then a light pole on Interstate 5 in Sacramento. Bolton then exited his car and started running down the highway in an attempt to evade arrest. When Bolton ran into on-coming traffic, fleeing the scene, Mohammad Rouf tried to avoid hitting him and the downed light pole then hit several other cars with his truck. Tragically the second crash took the life of Rouf.

The CHP reported that Bolton was believed to be on a controlled substance and was booked into Sacramento county jail. A woman riding in Bolton’s car and two other people were transported to a local hospital.

Both sides of the freeway were affected by the accident which created some road closures. It took Sacramento emergency crews several hours to move the wrecked cars from the roadway.

Client Testimonials

Herb T. Testimonial

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

S.B. Testimonial

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

Jereme S. Testimonial

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
