Tragic car accidents can happen when drivers run red lights

Most California drivers pay careful attention to road signs and light directions at intersections. However, tragic car accidents can happen when a driver seemingly ignores signage or does not see it for some reason. Such was the case recently when four people and two dogs were killed in a horrific crash at an intersection in Lancaster.

The crash happened early on a Wednesday afternoon. According to authorities, a vehicle traveling westbound ran a red light at the intersection and collided with another vehicle headed north. The three occupants of the second vehicle were ejected after crashing into a signal pole. Police have said they did not appear to have been wearing seat belts.

Two of the victims died at the scene. Another occupant of the car that was hit and the male driver of the first car, who seems to have been responsible for the crash, were transported to a hospital, where both succumbed to their injuries. Two dogs also did not survive the accident. One dog died at the scene, and another dog was transported to an animal hospital and was later euthanized due to the extent of its injuries.

Most people find car accidents involving this level of destruction very difficult to process and accept, since it seems one person's negligence may have been the sole cause. When authorities conclude the investigation, they may indeed find that reckless behavior on the part of the first driver led to the tragic deaths. In those circumstances, according to California civil law, the victims' grieving families would be within their rights to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
