At about 3:40 p.m. on Sunday, May 2, a crash sent a vehicle into a restaurant and injured five people in Long Beach. While traveling eastbound a Hyundai Tucson collided with a southbound Volkswagen Jetta at the intersection of Wardlow Road and Orange Avenue, the impact sending one of the vehicles into the Hole Mole restaurant. Emergency responders transported five people to the hospital. Witnesses, or anyone with information about the accident, are asked to contact investigators at 562-570-7355.
“California law ensures that those who have been injured in a collision may hold the at-fault party liable for the expense of their recoveries,” explained injury lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records indicate that 1,874 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents in Long Beach in 2010. The OTS ranked Long Beach 9th 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 five people who were injured in the crash that sent the vehicle into the restaurant.
The Long Beach Press-Telegram originally reported this accident.
Additional information on the injury claims process is available to the public free of charge through our office.
