Driver education programs typically place an emphasis on being a defensive driver. While following this advice could prevent car accidents, there is often nothing an oncoming driver can do to avoid a driver who runs a red light, for example. Unfortunately, five people in California were recently sent to the hospital following a serious car accident.

The accident happened just before 8 p.m. on a mid-April evening. A witness claims that the driver of an SUV attempted a left turn against a red light into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Unfortunately, the oncoming vehicle, which the witness says did not appear to be speeding, collided with the SUV.

Reports indicate that when first responders arrived at the scene, the oncoming vehicle was in flames. Its four occupants were lying on the sidewalk. Although their injuries are described as significant, they are expected to survive. The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries that required treatment at the hospital. It is unclear whether charges are expected to be filed as a result of the collision; however, the incident likely remains under investigation.

Anyone who has received treatment at the hospital — even for a minor condition — is likely aware of the medical bills that can be generated. In many cases, those injured in car accidents in California are unable to work while they recover, potentially making their financial situations even more stressful. Fortunately, there are legal options available to those injured as a result of a driver’s negligence. An attorney with experience with personal injury claims can help these victims fully understand their options.
