At about 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 4th, six people were injured in a collision involving entrapment in Reche Canyon. The accident occurred in the 7800 block of Reche Canyon Road, in an unincorporated area between Moreno Valley and Colton. Emergency responders extricated two people from the wreckage and transported them, along with four others, to the hospital. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
“When vehicle occupants are hurt in a crash, the negligent party may be held liable for expenses associated with their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “including for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Motor vehicle collisions claimed the lives of an estimated 32,310 people in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s statistical projection for that year. The agency noted a decline of 1.7 percent in the incidence of traffic fatalities from 2010, when 32,885 deaths were recorded. In California, however, traffic deaths rose by 3.3 percent.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the six people who were injured in the collision involving entrapment.
