Big Rig Tanker Truck Hits 2 Cars in Fiery Auto Accident on Sacramento Highway

A fiery crash resulted on a Sacramento highway today when a tanker truck slammed into 2 cars while two other cars were also damaged on Interstate 80. Four people were injured as a result of the truck accident as traffic was backed up for hours while Sacramento emergency crews put out the fire and cleaned up the roadway.

The CHP reported that the driver of the tanker truck, Darrin Demello of Sacramento, failed to stop when traffic had slowed on the freeway shortly after 5pm. The semi truck rear ended a pickup truck then ran over another car which was lodged underneath the big rig. Another car was also struck as the tanker truck continued down the highway.

The drivers of the truck and car that were lodged together were able to exit both vehicles before the fire broke out. Fortunately the tanker truck was not hauling gasoline at the time which could have resulted in a deadly explosion. Another vehicle involved was an SUV that was damaged as it was hit by car parts.

Sacramento CHP truck accident investigators are looking into why Demello was not able stop his tanker truck as traffic slowed in front of him. It was reported that he was traveling in the fast lane well below the speed limit but did not see the stopped traffic in front of him.

Most of the injuries were minor but a few truck accident victims had major injures and were transported to local hospitals for care.

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.

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...

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!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
