Anaheim: Two-Vehicle Collision Injured Three
Posted on Jul 20, 2012
At about 7:35 a.m. on Friday, July 20th, a two-vehicle collision injured three people on the I-5 in Anaheim. The crash, which involved a Chevy Cavalier and a GMC pickup truck, occurred in the southbound lanes of the freeway near Magnolia Street. Paramedics transported three people to UCI Medical Center. Authorities are investigating.
“Unexpected and traumatic, motor vehicle crashes often prove detrimental, both physically and financially, to those involved,” explained an auto accident lawyer in Orange County. “Fortunately, California law protects the rights of accident victims, ensuring they may seek compensation from the negligent party to assist them with their recovery.”
According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, the likelihood of being involved in a vehicle collision is greater than most people would think: one person in three will be injured or killed in a crash. Factors that commonly contribute to crashes include unsafe speed, distraction, and violation of right-of-way rules.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the three people who were injured in the two-vehicle collision.
The Orange County Register originally reported this Anaheim crash.
