At around 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, 36-year-old Jessica Vasquez, of Burbank, was critically injured in a multiple-vehicle collision in Anaheim. She was a passenger in a 2005 Hyundai driven by 36-year-old Edgar Aragon that was involved in a crash with two SUVs and a red sedan on the 91 Freeway near Gypsum Canyon Road. Aragon suffered moderate injuries, along with passenger 22-year-old German Mora. Another passenger, 21-year-old Anghy Aragon sustained minor injuries. They were taken to a nearby hospital, explains an Orange County auto accident attorney.
Nationwide, there were 24,474 vehicle occupant fatalities and 2,011,000 injuries in 2009, the most recent year for which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA, has released accident statistics. The injury rate per every 100 million vehicle miles traveled decreased by 6.3 percent from 2008 to 2009. Moreover, the number of fatal crashes in California decreased by 10 percent.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish Jessica Vasquez, the woman critically injured in the multiple-vehicle collision in Anaheim, a full recovery. We would also like to wish a full recovery to Edgar Aragon, Anghy Aragon, and German Mora.
