Aliso Viejo: Woman Critically Injured in Car Accident
James E. Ballidis
At around 6:30 last night, firefighters arrived at the scene of an accident involving two vehicles on the 73 Toll Road near the Aliso Creek Road exit in Aliso Viejo. One of the vehicles, a Ford Explorer, had rolled over, ejecting a female occupant. The woman was critically injured and transported to a nearby hospital, as was a child who was also injured in the accident, explains an Orange County auto accident attorney.
In 2009, rollover accidents claimed 8,267 lives, accounting for approximately 35% of the fatalities suffered in passenger cars and light trucks, according to the most recent accident data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA. As of 2007, the agency has required all passenger vehicles, trucks, and buses with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 4,536 kg (10,000) or less to be equipped with electronic stability control systems, providing drivers with greater vehicle control in situations conducive to rollover.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the woman critically injured in Aliso Viejo last night a full recovery. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the child who was injured.
The Orange County Register originally reported this car accident.
Resources for accident victims, such as articles and books on the injury claims process, are available to the public free of charge.
