Shortly after 5 a.m. last Friday morning, 36-year-old Eric Doran was killed and his wife critically injured in a car accident on the 101 Freeway in Thousand Oaks. Doran, the owner of the Costa Mesa restaurant Eat Chow, was traveling in a classic Model A roadster when a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup truck rear-ended his vehicle, the impact forcing it into the back of a Honda Accord. His wife remains in serious condition at a local hospital, explains a California personal injury attorney

Nationwide, fatal and injury traffic accidents tend to peak over long holiday weekends. In 2009, 473 motorists lost their lives in crashes throughout Memorial Day Weekend, 42 percent of which involved alcohol, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In Los Angeles County, there were three traffic-related deaths from 6:01 p.m. on Friday, May 27th through Monday, May 30th at 6 a.m., and the California Highway Patrol arrested 298 people on suspicion of driving under the influence. 

All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Eric Doran, the man who was killed in a car accident in Thousand Oaks last Friday. We would also like to wish his wife a full recovery. 

The Los Angeles Times originally reported this collision.
