2 Dead, 1 Injured in California Wreck
A California car accident that occurred on March 11 reportedly left two people dead and a third person with injuries. The crash happened at the Alessandro Boulevard and Canyon Crest Drive intersection in Riverside at approximately 12 a.m.
According to the authorities investigating the accident, it was believed that the driver of a silver Scion failed to stop at a red light. The Scion, which was thought to be traveling at a high rate of speed, allegedly broadsided a Chrysler minivan. The collision caused all of Alessandro Boulevard's six lanes to be shut down while authorities investigated.
The driver of the Scion and the driver of the Chrysler minivan both reportedly died at the scene of the wreck. The names of the two deceased individuals were not known. The survivor, an unidentified male who was an occupant of the Scion, was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. He was reportedly in serious condition.
A car crash can have a number of different causes, including drunk, reckless or distracted driving. Regardless of what caused the crash, a person who is found to have caused the incident may be held liable by other vehicle occupants for any damages that resulted. The compensation that an injured person may be eligible to recover depends on the accident; however, they often might recover the cost of hospital bills and lost income.
In some cases, the driver who was found to be responsible for causing the wreck may not survive. In these cases, a personal injury attorney may assist the injured person with filing a claim against the deceased driver's estate. The attorney may also assist with negotiating a settlement that covers the cost of the damages with the insurance company.
