San Diego: Two Injured in Collision on Interstate 805, DUI Suspected
Posted on Nov 20, 2012
Shortly before 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 18, two people were injured in a collision on Interstate 805 in San Diego. The crash, which involved a white sedan and a tan Chevrolet sport utility vehicle, occurred on the southbound side of the freeway near Home Avenue. According to witnesses, the driver of the SUV had been operating the vehicle recklessly before the accident. The California Highway Patrol indicated that DUI might have been a factor in the collision.
“When a crash results in injury, the at-fault driver may be held liable for the expense of the victims’ recoveries,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.”
In San Diego County, motor vehicle accidents claimed the lives of 126 people and injured another 15,939 in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Alcohol was a contributing factor to 68 of the fatal and 1,534 of the injury crashes that occurred in the county that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two people who were injured in the collision on Interstate 805.
