Elk Grove Personal Injury Attorneys
Elk Grove is the second-largest city in Sacramento County with a population of about 156,000 people. Originally designated as a stagecoach stop in 1850, the city was also one of the stops on the famous Pony Express. Located 15 miles south of Sutter’s Fort, the city grew as a housing base for the California Gold Rush and as a transportation and communication hub in the Sacramento Valley.
Lying between Highway 99 and Interstate 5, Elk Grove today can best be described as a bedroom community for the greater Sacramento area. Although many Elk Grove residents work in the city of Sacramento, they return home in the evenings to pleasant, tree-lined streets and quiet neighborhoods.
Elk Grove residents enjoy life away from the hustle and bustle of Sacramento, but they also face a certain amount of traffic in their own hometown. The increase in traffic in the past few years has led to higher injury and fatality numbers, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Reporting System. Elk Grove reported the following accident statistics last year:
- 8 motor vehicle fatalities
- 405 car accidents with injuries
- 529 motor vehicle property damage cases
- 2 fatalities from alcohol-related accidents
- 27 injury accidents from alcohol
- 1 pedestrian fatality
- 17 pedestrian injury accidents
- 2 bicycle fatalities
- 33 bicycle injury accidents
- 2 motorcycle fatalities
- 14 motorcycle accidents with injuries
Given the relatively small size of the city, the chances of being hurt or killed in a vehicle accident remain high. This may be due to the large numbers of commuters in Elk Grove’s population.
