The driver and third passenger were also transported to the hospital. Authorities are investigating the accident.
The California Office of Traffic Safety indicates that 128 people were killed or injured in motor vehicle collisions in Claremont in 2010. Eleven of the crashes that resulted in injury or death occurred between 9 p.m. and 2:59 a.m. The OTS compares the crash data of cities with populations of a similar size, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, starting with 1st place. That year, Claremont ranked 32nd out of 94 cities with populations of between 25,001 and 50,000 for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions.
In California, when a driver’s negligence results in injury or death, the victims or their families may file civil claims in order to obtain compensation from the driver for expenses related to their injuries or losses.
