At about 6 p.m. on Friday, April 26, a woman was killed and three people were injured in a collision in Westwood. While traveling southbound on Sepulveda Boulevard, the driver of a 2010 Ford Focus made a U-turn near Montana Avenue and was hit by a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban. The impact claimed the life of a female occupant of the Ford and injured two others in the vehicle, as well as the driver of the Chevrolet. The accident is under investigation.
“California law ensures that those who are injured or who lose loved ones in motor vehicle collisions have recourse through the civil justice system,” explained car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current records indicate that 72,010 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents in Los Angeles County in 2010. Los Angeles ranked 15th out of 58 counties 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 offer our condolences to the family of the woman who was killed in the collision. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the three people who were injured.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this Westwood crash.
