On the morning of Wednesday, August 31st, one driver and two pedestrians were seriously injured in a car accident in the Koreatown area of Los Angeles. The incident was triggered when a car ran a red light in the 3300 block of W. 8th Street and crashed into another vehicle, the impact sending one of them onto the sidewalk where pedestrians were waiting for the bus. Two of the pedestrians and one of the drivers were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Authorities are investigating the accident, explains a California injury lawyer.
Los Angeles County accounted for 390 of the 2,373 traffic-related fatalities and 64,178 of the 207,651 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants throughout the state in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, 177 of the state’s 596 pedestrian fatalities and 5,215 of the 13,083 injuries occurred in Los Angeles.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the driver and two pedestrians who were injured in the car accident yesterday a full recovery.
