At around 4:30 a.m. on Thursday, November 29, one person was killed and two others sustained minor injuries in a crash on the 134 Freeway in Toluca Lake. The collision, which involved at least two vehicles, occurred in westbound lanes at Cahuenga Boulevard. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When a collision results in trauma or death, the victims or their families may hold the negligent driver liable for their injury or loss through the personal injury or wrongful death claims process,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis.
In 2010, 346 motor vehicle occupants were killed and 62,881 were injured in crashes that occurred throughout Los Angeles County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, traffic fatalities in the state decreased 11.9 percent, from 3,081 in 2009 to 2,715.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the person who was killed in the crash on the 134 Freeway. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the two people who were injured.
