Because so many people in California use the roadways every day, it may be easy for drivers to take their safety for granted. Unfortunately, car accidents happen every day. Though sometimes the consequences of an accident are relatively small in some incidents, other times they can result in serious injuries. In fact, multiple people were reportedly injured in a recent crash.
The incident happened one afternoon on a day in July. According to reports, the driver of an eastbound vehicle failed to stop at a red light. As a result, police claim, the vehicle slammed into a northbound sports utility vehicle. Two people in the SUV suffered critical injuries while the two occupants of the first vehicle were seriously injured.
Some reports claim that the driver of the first vehicle may have been fleeing a previous hit-and-run accident. One person at the scene claims to have spoken to a woman who said she was involved in an accident with that vehicle. She claims to have been following the vehicle at the time of the accident but reportedly left the scene of the second accident.
Unfortunately, a single moment of carelessness, such as failing to stop at a red light, can have serious consequences, often for innocent people who happen to be in the area. Car accidents such as this often require a lengthy recovery period, creating a complicated financial situation as a result of lost wages and medical bills. Because of this, many people in California who are injured as a result of another person’s negligence may choose to file a personal injury lawsuit.
