Shortly before 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 19, two women were injured in a car accident in Brea. While traveling near the intersection of Brea Boulevard and Fir Street, the driver of a Ford Taurus collided with a Toyota Camry, the impact sending the Camry into a palm tree. Emergency responders extricated the driver of the Camry from the wreckage, and she was transported to a local hospital, as was the driver of the Taurus. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“Under California law, when motorists are injured in a collision they may seek compensation for expenses associated with their recovery from the at-fault driver,” explained an auto accident attorney in Orange County.
Brea accounted for 2 of the 101 fatalities and 236 of the 16,620 injuries suffered by passenger vehicle occupants in traffic accidents that occurred in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, 3,081 people lost their lives in crashes in the state.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two women who were injured in the car accident in Brea yesterday.
