Garden Grove: Four Injured in Seven-Vehicle Crash on 22 Freeway
Posted on Nov 26, 2012
Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 24, four people were injured in a seven-vehicle crash on the 22 Freeway in Garden Grove. The collision, which occurred near the Magnolia exit, was attributed to the reduced visibility caused by dense fog in the area. Emergency responders transported four people to area hospitals. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“After a crash resulting in injury, the victims may pursue personal injury claims against the negligent party,” explained Orange County auto accident attorney James Ballidis. “Such claims ensure victims are compensated for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.”
Garden Grove accounted for 2 of the 71 fatalities and 853 of the 17,031 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in crashes that occurred in Orange County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Fog was a contributing factor to 22 of the fatal and 582 of the injury collisions that occurred in the state that year.
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 seven-vehicle crash.
