Highland Park: Car Accident Claims the Life of a 2-Year-Old Girl
Posted on Aug 29, 2011
Shortly before 5:30 p.m. on Friday, August 26th, a car accident in Highland Park claimed the life of a two-year-old girl. While traveling in the southbound lanes of the 110 Freeway, a GMC Yukon and a Nissan Altima collided, causing the Altima to burst into flames. Despite efforts to free the toddler from the fiery wreckage, her mother and good Samaritans were unable to save her, explains a California personal injury attorney.
Los Angeles County accounted 390 of the 2,373 traffic-related fatalities and 64,178 of the 207,651 injuries suffered throughout the state in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident statistics of counties with similar populations, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with 1st place being the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the 2-year-old girl who was killed in the accident in Highland Park last Friday.
