Janice Christensen Killed in Pedestrian vs Car Accident in Sacramento

The California Highway Patrol is looking for a Sacramento hit-and-run driver in connection with the death of Janice Christensen. It was reported that Christensen had been seen pushing a shopping cart in the Arden Way and Maple Glen intersection. The CHP is trying to determine if the pedestrian was actually inside of the crosswalk line when she was struck. Christensen was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The fatal hit and run accident in Sacramento is believed to be caused by a black 2003 Lincoln SUV or similar vehicle. The SUV was traveling westbound on Arden Way when Christensen entered the crosswalk in the slow lane. They are still trying to determine if she had been walking completely in the designated crosswalk or just near it. The SUV immediately fled the hit and run scene after the pedestrian accident.

The Sacramento Police are looking for a black SUV similar to the one pictured here with possible left front damage. The CHP are asking the public for any leads that will help lead them to the Sacramento hit and run driver. If you know anything about this accident please contact the Sacramento CHP.

The Sacramento hit and run accident attorneys at the Tiemann Law Firm urge pedestrians to be very carefully when using crosswalks on busy streets. Motorist are becoming increasingly distracted these days so never assume that just because you are in a crosswalk that you are safe. Always looks both ways and make sure to proceed with caution.

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!

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
