At about 1:32 a.m. on Saturday, June 8, a texting driver caused a crash that injured two people in San Dimas. The collision, which caused one vehicle to rollover and sent another through a wall and into a backyard, occurred on Arrow Highway and Lone Hill Avenue. Emergency responders transported both drivers to area hospitals. Authorities suspect distracted driving was a contributing factor and are investigating the accident.
“When a motorist’s negligence causes an accident that injures others, he or she may be held responsible for the cost of their recoveries,” explained California injury lawyer James Ballidis.
Distracted driving claimed the lives of 3,331 people and injured another 387,000 in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This was an increase from the 3,267 fatalities that were recorded in 2010 and a decrease from 416,000 injuries. Distracted driving accounted for 18 percent of crashes that resulted in injury in 2010.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two people who were injured in the crash caused by the texting driver.
