Costa Mesa: One Injured in Rollover Accident

On the morning of Wednesday, April 4th, one person was injured in a rollover accident in Costa Mesa. The collision occurred at the intersection of South Coast Drive and Harbor Boulevard and involved a Toyota Rav4, a Honda Accord, a Toyota Sienna, and a Chrysler Town and County van. Firefighters extricated the driver of the Toyota, which had overturned, and he was transported to the hospital to receive treatment for minor injuries. Authorities are investigating the collision.

“When a driver suffers trauma in an accident, he or she may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering from the negligent party,” explained an auto accident lawyer in Orange County.

Costa Mesa accounted for 1 of the 101 fatalities and 991 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Orange County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident statistics of cities with similarly sized populations, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with 1st place considered the worst. In 2010, Costa Mesa ranked 7th out of 53 cities for fatal and injury crashes.

All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the man who was injured in the rollover accident.
