DUI May Be Cause of Back-to-Back Crashes in Riverside, California

A 27-year-old driver ran his car into the back of one vehicle on the morning of April 6, 2011, on a freeway in Riverside, California. He then went on to drive the wrong way down the expressway until he was stopped – by colliding head-on with another car, according to California Highway Patrol officials.

The driver was severely hurt and trapped in the wreckage of his vehicle until emergency crews could free him and transport him to a medical facility. Investigators are looking to arraign him on drunken driving charges once he sufficiently recovers.

It all happened starting at 1:59 in the morning while the driver was heading south down I-215, driving his 2007 Corvette at somewhere between 90 and 100 miles per hour, police sources told New York Injury Law Offices. He first hit the back of a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was driven by a 63-year-old man.

“Following this collision, [the driver] drove… (the) wrong-way northbound on southbound I-215 where he collided head-on with [a 23-year-old woman from Riverside, California]’s 2007 Toyota Corolla,” California police said to New York Injury Law Offices.

Both the 63-year-old man and the 23-year-old woman were taken to Riverside Community Hospital, suffering from only minor injuries, investigators confirmed. They had a much better outcome than the possibly drunken driver.

Though matters may have turned out well enough for the two who were harmed by the drunk driver, they still have to deal with damage to their cars, which insurance may not completely cover. There may also minor hospital bills – which are not so minor, considering the expense of even simple medical matters. What all this adds up to is that they may need legal representation fast, and the only kind that should do is the high quality legal counsel.

There is no reason anyone should ever suffer an accident that was no fault of their own and leave it behind without any compensation whatsoever. The cause of the accident needs to pay for it and those harmed by the accident deserve compensation.

If you or a loved one has suffered through the actions of another, your first step should be to call a New York Injury Law Office. Only someone with the skill of a New York Injury Law Office can make sure justice is served when the time comes to go to court.
