Car Crash Delays Morning Commute in California
Many drivers become frustrated when they experience sluggish traffic and congestion as they make their morning commute. However, sometimes this is a result of car accidents which have forced the authorities to close down parts of the road, requiring detours and stopping points. This is what happened in a recent car crash in California which involved two vehicles.
The incident occurred around 6:45 a.m. at an intersection. The police were at first notified of a hit-and-run accident; however, when they arrived at the scene of the incident they realized the hit-and-run reports were false. Despite that fact, there was indeed an accident which resulted in one person being injured. The exact injuries sustained by the person and the severity of the injuries have yet to be reported to the public by authorities.
The southbound lane of the road was blocked at approximately 7:30 a.m. This resulted in traffic congestion and a slow commute for motorists this particular morning. The cause of the accident has not been reported. Investigators also have not announced any determination as to who may have been at fault in causing the crash.
However, those who are injured in a California car crash may end up facing significant medical bills and even permanent effects from the injuries sustained which could result in ongoing medical bills for a long time after the accident occurred. On the other hand, they may be able to obtain some monetary assistance. The court may award them monetary reimbursement if they decide to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against those they believe to be at fault.
