Shortly before 7 a.m. on Thursday, February 21, an SUV and a pickup truck collided in Somis, injuring five. While traveling eastbound on Highway 118, the driver of a sport utility vehicle made a U-turn in front of the truck, the impact sending the SUV into a ditch. Emergency responders transported five people—three occupants of the SUV and two of the truck—to area hospitals to receive treatment for injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Authorities are investigating the crash.


“When a motor vehicle collision results in injury, the victims may pursue personal injury claims against the negligent driver in order to obtain compensation for the cost of their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis. 


Throughout Ventura County, auto accidents resulted in 37 fatalities and 4,441 injuries in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident statistics of the state’s 58 counties, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with 1st place considered the worst. That year, Ventura ranked 30th for traffic safety. 


All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the five people who were injured in the collision.
