On the morning of Tuesday, June 5th, a collision with a Border Patrol Agent left a 32-year-old woman injured in Imperial County. According to witnesses, while traveling northbound on Bowker Road, the agent failed to make a complete stop for the sign at Herber Road and struck the woman’s vehicle as she passed through the intersection, the impact sending it into a canal. She sustained a fractured neck and was transported to a hospital. Authorities are investigating the accident, which occurred in the same location as a triple-fatality collision involving a different Border Patrol agent in 2009.
“When a driver’s negligence results in a crash causing trauma, he or she may be held liable for expenses associated with the victim’s injuries,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis.
Traffic accidents claimed the lives of 31 passenger vehicle occupants and injured another 642 in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. In a California Office of Traffic Safety ranking system in which 1st place is considered the worst, Imperial County placed 58th out of 58 counties.
All of us would like to wish a full recovery to the woman who was injured in the collision with the Border Patrol agent.
