Maria Teresa Cano and Maria Orbilla Milton Injured In Costa Mesa Pedestrian Accident
James E. Ballidis
Shortly before 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 27th, Maria Teresa Cano and Maria Orbilla Milton were injured when the driver of a Ford F150 struck them while turning right onto Adams Avenue in Costa Mesa. The driver had waited for other people to traverse the marked crosswalk, looked west, and then began to execute the turn without noticing that the two women were crossing. Cano sustained serious head trauma, while Milton suffered minor injuries. Both were taken to nearby hospitals. Police are investigating the pedestrian accident and have asked witnesses to call Investigator Rick Cummings at 714-754-5264, explains an Orange County pedestrian accident lawyer.
Nationwide, 4,378 pedestrians were killed and 69,000 injured in traffic collisions in 2008, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). California accounted for 646 of the fatalities and 12,774 of the injuries, with none of the fatalities and 60 of the injuries occurring in Costa Mesa that year, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The majority of the accidents occurred in urban areas (72%), at non-intersection locations (76%), in normal weather conditions (89%), and at night (70%).
Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish Maria Teresa Cano and Maria Orbilla Milton, the two women injured yesterday, a full recovery.
