Shortly before noon on Friday, February 18th, an accident involving a transportation bus and three vehicles injured three people in Alhambra. The collision occurred on the westbound 10 Freeway near Atlantic Avenue. Paramedics transported the injured to local hospitals. Authorities are investigating the cause of the accident, explains a California personal injury lawyer.
Alhambra accounted for 3 of the 390 fatalities and 485 of the 64,178 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Los Angeles County in 2009, 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 similar populations, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with first place considered the worst. That year, Alhambra ranked 35th out of 104 cities for fatal and injury crashes.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the three people who were injured in the accident involving the bus yesterday a full recovery.
