Shortly before 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29th, a multiple-vehicle collision injured four people, one of them seriously, in Tustin. Involving a Ford Mustang, a Ford Festiva, and a Chevrolet Tahoe, the crash occurred at the intersection of Irvine Boulevard and Prospect Avenue and sent the driver of the Mustang to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana to receive treatment for major trauma. Paramedics also transported the driver of the Festiva and one of the two occupants of the Tahoe who were hurt to hospitals, their injuries ranging from minor to serious. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When vehicle occupants are injured in an accident, the at-fault driver may be held liable for the cost of the victims’ recovery,” explained an auto accident lawyer in Orange County, “including for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Tustin accounted for 3 of the 101 fatalities and 453 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic collisions in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Comparing 104 cities with populations ranging in size from 50,001 to 100,000, the California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Tustin 44th for fatal and injury collisions, which is slightly below average when one considers that 1st place is the worst a city can receive.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the four people who were injured in the multiple-vehicle collision today.
