On the afternoon of Friday, July 13th, a two-vehicle crash in Hemet injured five people. While traveling westbound on Stetson Avenue in a Chevrolet Tahoe, Bonnie Briones collided with a Hyundai driven by Joan Rodgers that was turning north from an eastbound lane, the impact causing the SUV to overturn. Paramedics transported five people who suffered minor to moderate trauma to local hospitals. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When passenger vehicle occupants are seriously hurt in a crash, the negligent driver may be held liable for their recovery-related expenses,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis.
The California Office of Traffic Safety reports that 454 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents that occurred in Hemet in 2010. After analyzing the accident statistics of 103 cities with populations ranging in size from 50,001 to 100,000, the OTS gave each a ranking, with 1st place reflecting the poorest safety record. That year, Hemet ranked 13th for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the five people who were injured in the two-vehicle collision.
