Fiery California car accident leads to 1 death, 2 injuries

Car Accidents | October 3, 2014

A head-on crash recently took place in California. This type of collision can be deadly due to the major impact experienced when two speeding vehicles strike each other. Unfortunately, one woman lost her life in the fiery car accident, while two other individuals suffered major injuries.

A 30-year-old driver ended up having to be pulled from the car she was driving. A good Samaritan was able to do this for her before the vehicle burst into flames, police said. However, she later died at the accident scene, authorities reported.

The woman who died had been going south in the area of Highway 121 on a Saturday night. Her car went into oncoming traffic and hit another car head-on. A 53-year-old man was driving that vehicle and had to be taken to the hospital via helicopter. The 51-year-old female passenger in his car also had to be taken to the hospital, although she was taken by ambulance. Authorities continued to investigate this horrific crash.

When people become injured in a California car accident, they may be faced with thousands of dollars in medical expenses and even lose wages due to being unable to work. However, they have the right to file personal injury claims against those considered responsible for the accident that led to their injuries. Even if the person who allegedly caused the accident died, the deceased person’s estate may be sued, and so could the persons who separately own the vehicle he or she was driving when the wreck occurred. Awarded damages may help the victims to cover their losses and even address pain and suffering resulting from the incident.
