At about 4:16 p.m. on Friday, September 14, 53-year-old Frieda Hampton was killed and three others were injured in a collision on Highway 60 in Beaumont. While the California Highway Patrol indicated that Hampton’s SUV slammed into the center divider and collided with two vehicles, the Riverside County Coroner’s Press Release cited a head-on crash with a full size pickup truck as the cause of her death. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency responders transported three people to local hospitals, their injuries ranging from minor to serious. Authorities are investigating the cause of the accident.
“When a motor vehicle collision results in injury or fatality, the at-fault party may be held liable for the victims’ injuries or losses,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis.
Beaumont accounted for 1 of the 164 fatalities and 172 of the 10,594 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in crashes that occurred throughout Riverside County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Traffic fatalities in the state decreased by 11.9 percent from 3,081 in 2009 to 2,715.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Frieda Hampton, the woman killed in the collision on Highway 60. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the three people who were injured.
