Outside our Sacramento home, in Dixon, CA, a boy was hit by a car as he was crossing Highway 113. The boy, 12 years old, was crossing the highway after leaving his school, Neighborhood Christian. According to reports, the boy was unable to see oncoming traffic because of a parked big-rig truck. Venturing into the road, a car traveling southbound struck him.
The boy was taken by ambulance to U.C. Davis Medical Center in Sacramento and was treated for a broken ankle and a possible perforated bowel.
The town of Dixon is in the beginning stages of moving the highway out of downtown. Having it in the center of town poses many risks. Neighborhood Christian School is a prime example of the dangers involved in having a highway nearby, as many students have to cross it to and from school. In addition, reports state that the only way to cross the highway from the school is through a marked crosswalk with no stop sign or signal to provide more safety for the students.

Don’t Let Your Statute Of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date the incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.
