Shortly before midnight on Tuesday, April 16, three men were injured, one seriously, in a truck crash in Wildomar. While traveling near La Estrella Road and Crest Meadow Drive, a white Ford F-250 pickup truck crashed into a wall and several trees, ejecting one of the occupants. He suffered major trauma and was transported to an area hospital, along with the other two men, who sustained minor injuries. Witnesses, or anyone with information about the accident, are asked to call the sheriff’s Lake Elsinore Station at 951-245-3300.
“When a crash results in trauma, the victims may hold the at-fault driver liable for the expense of their recoveries by filing personal injury claims,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
