Shortly before noon on Tuesday, November 15th, five people were injured in a car accident in Santa Ana. The collision between the Nissan Altima and the Diamond Environmental Services septic truck occurred at the intersection of First Street and Euclid Street after one of the vehicles failed to stop for a red light. All four occupants of the Altima were injured, a 2-month-old girl critically. The driver of the truck also suffered trauma. Authorities are investigating the crash, explains an Orange County car accident lawyer.
Santa Ana accounted for 2 of the 101 fatalities and 1,625 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, the number of traffic fatalities in the state decreased by 10.3 percent, from 3,434 in 2008 to 3,081 in 2009, the lowest level recorded since 1975.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the five people who were injured in the car accident yesterday a full recovery.
