At about 1:35 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, a motorist was killed in a collision with a limousine in Van Nuys. The accident, which involved four vehicles, occurred at the intersection of Fulton Avenue and Magnolia Boulevard. The driver of a sedan suffered fatal trauma. Shortly before the crash, the driver of the limousine was involved in a hit-and-run accident near Riverside Drive and Fulton Avenue. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When a collision results in fatal trauma, the motorist determined to be at-fault for the crash may be held liable by the family of the victim for their loss,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
The incidence of traffic deaths in California increased 2.6 percent in 2011, from 2,720 in 2010 to 2,791, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The state’s Mileage Death Rate (MDR), which is the number of fatalities per 100 million miles traveled, was 0.84 in 2010. This is lower than the national 1.11 MDR.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the motorist who was killed in the collision with the limousine.
