At about 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 17, a head-on crash killed three people and seriously injured six in Redlands. A commercial van with two occupants collided with a minivan carrying eight people on Orange Street north of Pioneer Avenue. Two male occupants and one female were pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency responders transported six victims to the hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“After a crash, the victims or their families may seek compensation from the negligent driver for the expense of their recovery or loss by filing a personal injury or a wrongful death claim,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis.
Redlands accounted for 6 of the 180 fatalities and 467 of the 11,050 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in collisions that occurred in San Bernardino County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Redlands 18th out of 103 cities with similarly sized populations for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of the three people who were killed in the head-on crash. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the six people who were seriously injured.
