Shortly after 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30, at least one person was injured in a three-vehicle collision in Crestline. The crash occurred on Highway 18 at the Crestline Bridge. Two of the vehicles reportedly collided head-on. Emergency responders airlifted one person to a hospital. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“When a crash causes trauma to those involved, traffic investigators will determine if the negligence of any of the drivers contributed to the accident,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis. “The at-fault driver may then be held liable for the expenses associated with the victims’ recoveries.”
Throughout San Bernardino County, crashes claimed the lives of 180 motor vehicle occupants and injured another 11,050 in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked San Bernardino 36th out 58 counties in the state for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the person who was injured in the three-vehicle collision.
