Shortly after 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 12th, a head-on collision in Fountain Valley left five people injured. While traveling eastbound on Edinger Avenue, a 26-year-old man in a white Volvo turned left onto Richardson Street into the path of a black BMW that was traveling westbound on Edinger. Four of the five family members in the BMW sustained injuries, as did the driver of the Volvo. Authorities are investigating the accident, explains an auto accident lawyer in Orange County.
Fountain Valley accounted for 1 of the 101 fatalities and 578 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident statistics of cities with similar populations, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with 1st place considered the worst. That year, Fountain Valley ranked 1st out of 104 cities for fatal and injury traffic accidents.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the five people who were injured in the head-on collision last Sunday a full recovery.
