At about 11:20 a.m. on Saturday, October 4, 2014, a 26-year-old man was killed in a crash in Huntington Beach, reported the Orange County Register. While traveling westbound on Garfield Avenue, the green 1998 Ford F-150 in which the man was riding collided with a silver 2010 BMW X6 that was traveling south on Edwards Street, the impact ejecting the man and the 19-year-old male driver of the truck. Emergency responders transported him to the hospital, where he died from his injuries. The driver of the truck and the driver of the BMW were also taken to hospitals, where they were in stable condition. Witnesses are asked to contact investigator Robert Barr at 714-536-5666. 


Huntington Beach ranked the worst for auto accidents out of 55 cities with populations of between 100,001 and 250,000 in 2011, the most recent year for which California Office of Traffic Safety crash statistics are available. That year, 1,510 people were killed or injured in car collisions in the city. Five of those accidents involved a driver under the age of 21, with the city ranking 46th for such crashes in a rating system in which 1st place is the worst.


California residents who are seriously injured in motor vehicle collisions may hold the at-fault parties liable for the expenses associated with their recoveries, such as for medical bills and lost earnings. The families of the victims of fatal accidents may hold the responsible parties liable for their losses by filing wrongful death claims.

All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the man who was killed in this accident. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the two men who were injured.
