At about 9:15 p.m. on Sunday, June 16, 37-year-old Ryan Daniel Callahan was killed and two men were injured in a head-on collision in Fallbrook. While traveling eastbound on Reche Road in a 1991 Toyota Corolla, Callahan swerved into the westbound lane and crashed into a 2003 BMW 540i. Callahan was pronounced dead at the scene. The male driver of the BMW and his passenger were transported to an area hospital to receive treatment for moderate trauma. Authorities are investigating the collision.
“The likelihood of suffering serious or fatal trauma in a motor vehicle collision is higher than many would expect,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “with the DMV estimating that one person in three will be killed or injured in a crash.”
Throughout San Diego County, 126 people were killed and another 15,939 were injured in traffic accidents in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Collisions that occurred between 9 p.m. and 2:59 a.m. accounted for 1,640 of the traffic-related injuries and deaths in the county that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Ryan Daniel Callahan. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the two men who were injured in the head-on collision.
Additional information on the injury and the wrongful death claims process is available to the public free of charge through our office.
