At about 3 a.m. on Tuesday, February 12, two people were injured in a wrong-way crash on the 170 Freeway near Valley Glen. While traveling northbound in the southbound lanes at about 70 mph, the driver collided with at least four vehicles. Authorities closed southbound lanes until just before 6 a.m. to clear the wreckage and investigate.
“When a driver’s negligence causes a collision resulting in trauma, the driver may be held liable for the expenses associated with the victims’ recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Throughout Los Angeles County, 72,010 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current data. Crashes occurring between 9 p.m. and 2:59 a.m. claimed the lives of or caused injury to 6,760 people in the county that year.
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 wrong-way crash.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this Valley Glen collision.
