Shortly after 4 a.m. on Friday, December 14, two people were injured in a crash involving entrapment on Interstate 10 in Cabazon. The rollover accident occurred in eastbound lanes at Morongo Trail. Firefighters extricated one of the vehicle occupants from the wreckage. Emergency responders transported the two victims, one of them in critical condition, to a local hospital. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“Vehicle occupants injured in collisions may hold the negligent driver liable for the expense of their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.”
Throughout Riverside County, motor vehicle collisions claimed the lives of 164 people and injured another 10,594 in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Riverside 46th out of 58 counties for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two people who were injured in the crash involving entrapment on Interstate 10.
