Faith Eyler Seriously Hurt in Lakeport Car Accident on Highway 175 near Mathews Road
Lakeport, California (April 14, 2020) - Faith Eyler has been identified as the driver who was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash that left two others injured on Thursday afternoon in Lakeport, according to police.
The crash occurred at about 3:45 p.m., on April 9, on Highway 175, west of Mathews Road.
As per the police reports, Eyler, a resident of Cloverdale, was driving westbound on Highway 175 in a 1997 Honda Civic when her car drifted off the road’s northern edge.
Eyler reportedly overcorrected and eventually crossed the double yellow centerline and continued driving the wrong way. Unfortunately, Eyler’s Honda collided with an oncoming 2006 BMW X5 that was traveling eastbound on the highway.
Eyler sustained major injuries. She was taken to Sutter Lakeside Hospital in Lakeport.
Eyler’s passenger and the BMW X5 driver were also taken to Sutter Lakeside Hospital in Lakeport with major injuries.
The three parties were all wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Alcohol and drugs were not considered a factor in the accident.
The crash remains under investigation.
According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary to clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
