Shortly after 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 29th, a head-on collision in Malibu killed 48-year-old Lyssa Marie Hand and seriously injured 47-year-old Keith William Imrie. While traveling southbound in a Ford Expedition on Malibu Canyon Road, Hand veered into oncoming traffic while negotiating a curve, striking Imrie’s Toyota pickup truck, explains a California personal injury attorney. The impact caused the truck to rollover onto its roof. Hand suffered major trauma and was transported to West Hills Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Imrie was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center in critical condition.
Malibu accounted for 1 of the 390 fatalities and 150 of the 64,178 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Los Angeles County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. According to the CHP, crossing into opposing lanes of traffic accounted for 125 of the fatal head-on collisions that year and 180 of all types of traffic-related fatalities.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Lyssa Marie Hand, the woman killed in the head-on collision in Malibu. We would also like to wish a full recovery to Keith William Imrie, who was seriously injured in the crash.
