Santa Clarita: Rollover Accident Injured Eight

Shortly after 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 22nd, a rollover accident near Santa Clarita injured eight people. While traveling on California State Route 126 in Santa Clarita, a Sport Utility Vehicle carrying eight people rolled over at Chiquito Canyon Road. Three occupants where ejected, one of whom was airlifted to a trauma center. Paramedics transported the other injured accident victims to a local hospital. Authorities are investigating the crash.

“After an accident resulting in injuries, passengers may seek compensation from the person responsible for the collision for expenses related to their recovery,” explained a California personal injury lawyer.

Santa Clarita accounted for 5 of the 390 fatalities and 772 of the 64,178 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic crashes throughout Los Angeles County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The following year, traffic fatalities in California decreased by 11.0 percent, from 3,081 to 2,715.

All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the eight people who were injured in the rollover accident last Sunday.
