Fatal car accidents can result from drivers' poor choices

In California and elsewhere, people who are operating any type of motor vehicle should make responsible choices before getting behind the wheel. Sometimes, car accidents happen due to circumstances beyond the control of anyone involved. Other times, tragedy results when one person has failed to make a smart choice, such as avoiding drugs or alcohol before driving. Such may have been the case in a fatal accident in which one man was killed and several others were injured.

The crash happened late one recent Saturday afternoon. According to police, the woman who is accused of causing the crash drove through a red light at a high speed and collided with another vehicle making a left turn after properly stopping at the intersection. A third vehicle also became involved in the crash. Three people were transported to a local hospital with major injuries: the two occupants of the second vehicle, as well as the driver of the first vehicle, while the occupants of the third vehicle suffered minor injuries. The 64-year-old driver of the second vehicle later died from his injuries while in hospital.

Authorities are investigating the crash as a crime. They believe the woman who was driving the first vehicle was under the influence of a controlled substance at the time of the incident. Police have said they have a suspect in custody, but charges are pending since the investigation is ongoing.

Unfortunately, to some degree, people on the roads are at the mercy of other people's choices. In this case, sadly, a man lost his life and a woman suffered serious injuries, likely because of another driver's poor choice. Following car accidents such as this one, some people consult with an experienced California personal injury lawyer who can review individual case details and discuss the possibility of pursuing a civil lawsuit. A successfully litigated case can provide monetary compensation for victims of such a tragedy.
