4/20/2012Shortly before 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18th, a 60-year-old woman was seriously injured in a crash with a wrong-way drunk driver in San Diego. While traveling east in an Infinity G35 in the fast lane of the westbound side of Route 56, 38-year-old Jennifer Keiko crashed head-on with a Scion XD near Camino del Sur, the impact causing the female driver to suffer major trauma. She was transported to a hospital to receive treatment for fractures to the neck, leg, and arm, as well as head injuries. After receiving medical attention, Keiko was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
“When a motorist suffers significant harm due to the negligence of another driver, he or she may seek compensation for expenses incurred while in recovery,” explained California personal injury attorney James Ballidis, “such as hospital and medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.”
Throughout San Diego County, traffic accidents claimed the lives of 163 passenger vehicle occupants and injured another 16,242 in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, alcohol contributed to 103 of the fatalities and 1,754 of the injuries.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the woman who was seriously injured in the crash with the wrong-way drunk driver.
