At about 10:40 p.m. on Sunday, March 9, 2014, Georgina Gallegos and Hector Manzo were killed and a teenager was seriously injured in a crash in Anaheim, reported the Los Angeles Times. While traveling at a high rate of speed near the intersection of East and South streets, Manzo lost control of the vehicle and struck two parked cars, the impact causing the vehicle to flip over and crash into a brick wall. It landed in the backyard of a residence. Manzo and a passenger were thrown from the vehicle. Gallegos, the front passenger, was pronounced dead at the scene. Manzo and the teen were taken to the hospital, where Manzo was later pronounced dead and the teen remained in critical condition. Authorities suspect that speed was a contributing factor and are investigating the accident.
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records indicate that 2,075 people were killed or injured in motor vehicle collisions that occurred in Anaheim in 2011. Speed was a contributing factor to 338 of the crashes that resulted in injury or death. Anaheim ranked the 2nd worst in the state for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes and for crashes involving speeding out of 13 cities with populations of more than 250,000.
When a crash results in injury or death, the victims or their families may file civil claims against the at-fault party in order to obtain compensation for the expenses associated with their recoveries or losses.
