On the afternoon of Thursday, March 28, a vehicle crashed into a bakery in Glendale, killing a man and injuring five others. A female driver in her 60s crashed into Oledina’s Cake Factory in the 1100 block of East Broadway, trapping a man who was purchasing a cup of coffee. He was pronounced dead at the scene. One of the five people who sustained injuries in the accident was transported to a local hospital. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When a motorist’s negligence causes a crash that harms others, the victims may file personal injury claims against the driver in order to obtain compensation for the expense of their recoveries,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis. “In the event that a victim does not survive the accident, his or her family may pursue a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver.”
Glendale accounted for 6 of the 568 fatalities and 1,000 of the 71,866 injuries suffered in traffic accidents that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Glendale 32nd out of 53 cities with similarly sized populations for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the man who was killed when the vehicle crashed into the bakery. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the five people who were injured.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this Glendale accident.
