Shortly before 4:25 p.m. on Saturday, June 2nd, a driver ran a red light in Fullerton, causing a crash that injured six people. While traveling northbound on North Gilbert Street, the driver neglected to stop for a red light at Hughes Drive, colliding with a vehicle that was turning left. Six people suffered trauma and were transported to a hospital. Authorities are investigating the crash.

 

“When a driver’s negligence causes an accident resulting in injury, he or she may be obligated to compensate the victims for expenses associated with their recovery,” explained an auto accident attorney in Orange County, “including for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”

 

Fullerton accounted for 7 of the 101 fatalities and 890 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents throughout Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, traffic signals and signs were primary collision factors in 140 of the fatal and 12,994 of the injury crashes that occurred in the state. 

 

All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the six people who were injured when the motorist ran the red light in Fullerton.

 

Resources for accident victims and their families, including books and articles on the injury claims process, are available to the public free of charge.
