Anaheim: Hit-and-Run Driver Caused Multiple-Car Crash
Posted on Dec 20, 2011
Shortly before 10:50 a.m. on Monday, December 19th, a hit-and-run driver caused a multiple-car crash in Anaheim. At the intersection of Euclid Street and Catherine Drive a Chevrolet Cavalier turned left into oncoming traffic and collided with a Honda Civic, the impact sending it into a parked Chevrolet Tahoe. The driver of the Civic sustained injuries and was transported to a hospital; fortunately, her child was not hurt. Police have yet to apprehend the driver of the Cavalier, who fled the scene of the crash on foot, explains an auto accident attorney in Orange County.
Anaheim accounted for 13 of the 101 fatalities and 2,769 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents throughout Orange County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident statistics of cities with similar populations, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings. 1st place is considered the worst. That year, Anaheim ranked 4th out of 13 cities for traffic safety.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the driver who was injured in the multiple-car crash in Anaheim a full recovery from her injuries.
