Orange County: Injury Accidents Accompany Wet Roads
Posted on Mar 07, 2011
While many of the accidents that occurred on Orange County’s wet roads this morning fortunately did not leave anyone hurt, a few people were seriously injured. Shortly before 9:00 a.m., a Honda Civic rolled several times on the Ortega Highway, critically injuring one person. On the I-5 south of Camino Capistrano, a three-vehicle collision left two people injured. Paramedics rushed one person to Mission Hospital for treatment of major injuries, and another reportedly suffered injuries to the face, explains an Orange County auto accident attorney.
According to the most recent accident statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA, rainy weather was a factor in 2,410 of the fatal and 170,000 of the injury accidents that occurred in 2009. Southern California drivers should be especially careful after it first rains, as the build up of engine oil and grease on the roads mixes with the water, making them slick.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the people injured in the accidents on the wet roads this morning a full recovery.
