At about 7:23 a.m. on Thursday, June 13, two women were injured in a three-vehicle collision in Brea. While traveling on Tonner Canyon Road, the Toyota Corolla in which the women were riding collided with a Ford Expedition at the intersection with Brea Canyon Road. When the Ford swerved to avoid a collision, it crashed into a Dodge Dakota truck, causing the truck to overturn. Emergency responders transported the women to an area hospital. Neither the eight teens in the Ford nor the driver of the Dodge were hurt in the crash. The accident is under investigation.
“Those who are injured in traffic collisions may file civil claims against the negligent driver in order to be compensated for the cost of their recoveries,” explained Orange County auto accident lawyer, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
In 2010, 248 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents that occurred in Brea, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records. Two of the collisions that resulted in injury or death involved a driver under the age of 21, with the OTS ranking Brea 24th out of 93 similarly sized cities for its incidence of such accidents.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two women who were injured in the three-vehicle collision.
