Shortly before 8 p.m. on Monday, April 15, three people were injured in a crash in the Woodcrest area of Riverside. The collision, which occurred along Wood Road near Nandina Avenue, involved two vehicles; one was reportedly wrapped around a pole. Firefighters had to extricate at least one victim from the wreckage. Emergency responders transported three people to area hospitals to receive treatment for injuries ranging from moderate to major.
“When a motor vehicle collision results in trauma, the victims may file personal injury claims against the negligent driver in order to hold him or her liable for the cost of their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Motor vehicle accidents claimed the lives of or caused injury to 1,316 people in 2010 in Riverside, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records. The OTS ranked Riverside 8th out of 13 cities with similarly sized populations for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes 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 three people who were injured in the crash in Woodcrest.
