Car accident causes 1 death, 1 injury in California

When people suffer injuries in accidents, they may face a wide range of problems. Victims of car accidents might struggle to overcome their physical injuries, for instance, and they might also be forced to quit working for a time while they heal. Monetary relief, which can be awarded in appropriate circumstances, may help these individuals (or the families of deceased victims) to recover from their losses following a car accident.

One individual was recently injured and another person was killed in a two-vehicle accident in California. The accident happened on a Thursday in the area of Highway 246. It happened past 1 p.m., authorities said.

The teenage girl, said to be 17, allegedly breached a double yellow line. She then ended up in oncoming traffic and struck another driver head-on. The other motorist, said to be 62, suffered major injuries. Authorities had to extricate her from the vehicle wreckage, and she was transported to a hospital by helicopter. Police said they weren’t sure why the teenager went over the center line, although it doesn’t appear that drugs or alcohol were causal factors in the crash.

The injured victim may choose to file a personal injury claim in this case. Although the younger driver who police said caused the accident ended up dying in the crash, her legal estate and any separate owners of the vehicle she was operating may be held financially responsible for the victim’s injuries. If the injured woman wins her civil court claim, any financial restitution that results might help to cover her hospital bill, lost wages and other damages connected to the California car accident.
