Huntington Beach: One Person Killed, Three Injured in Crash on Bolsa Chica
Posted on May 09, 2012
Shortly after 7:31 a.m. on Wednesday, May 9th, one person was killed and three were injured in a crash on Bolsa Chica Street and Tasman Drive in Huntington Beach. The collision involved four vehicles, including a Ford Bronco. Paramedics transported the injured to local hospitals. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“The formal investigation into a fatal collision can take several weeks to complete,” explained an auto accident attorney in Orange County, “which can be frustrating for family members seeking information about how their loved one died.”
Huntington Beach accounted for 9 of the 101 fatalities and 1,204 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic collisions throughout Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Comparing the crash data for 56 cities with populations ranging in size from 100,001 to 250,000 residents, the California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Huntington Beach 5th—a poor score considering that 1st place is the worst a city can receive.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the person who was killed in the crash on Bolsa Chica Street this morning. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the three people who were injured.
