Shortly after 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 28th, two people were hurt in a car accident on the 91 Freeway in Anaheim. While traveling at a high rate of speed, the driver of a Mazda 3 attempted to pass a semi truck but instead collided with the vehicle, the impact sending her into the Fastrak lanes, where she hit a Ford Mustang. While a fourth vehicle was also involved in the crash, only the drivers of the Mazda and the Mustang suffered trauma and were transported to a local hospital. Authorities are investigating the collision, explains an Orange County truck accident attorney.
Anaheim accounted for 13 of the 101 fatalities and 2,769 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, large trucks were involved in 5 of the fatal and 298 of the injury collisions that occurred in the county.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the two drivers who were hurt in the car accident on the 91 Freeway yesterday morning a full recovery.
