The pedestrians, an elderly couple, were walking behind the woman’s SUV when they were struck. Presumably the woman was backing out of her parking space and failed to see the couple walking by. The SUV actually ran over the woman and hit the man.
On September 26, 2014, a woman hit and killed a 40-year-old man in a wheelchair in Pacoima. The woman did not stop after hitting the man near the intersection of Terra Bella Street and Cayuga Avenue. The man was attempting to cross the street when the woman struck him.
Police officers put their lives on the line every day as they work hard to protect and serve their respective areas, but the knowledge that their job is dangerous does not make the loss of an officer any less tragic. The death of an officer still impacts the family of the victim and even the community in which they worked. Unfortunately, one motor vehicle accident in California recently took the life of one officer.
Political leaders of any kind are often held to a higher moral standard than the rest of society because of their positions of power. For this reason, when a politician may have caused a vehicle accident and been under the influence while doing so, it can seem much more shocking than an average DUI. Unfortunately, a local California politician may have been at fault for a recent motor vehicle accident.
Car accidents that occur at high speeds on major highways can be seriousness enough, but the severity of the accident can be increased greatly if the accident is a head-on collision. These accidents can leave those involved with severe injuries, or worse. One teenager in California is now in the hospital for injuries that resulted from a recent motor vehicle accident in Sutter County.
Teenagers are often not as experienced at driving as older drivers on California roadways. When combined with the rowdiness of several teenagers in a car, this can create perilous situations that endanger both the teenagers as well as others on or near the roadway. Police say that a 16-year-old in Orange County recently caused a motor vehicle accident that killed five of his passengers.
Car accidents that leave those involved with injuries can be severe enough, but if a victim is killed, it can leave the surviving family in emotional shambles. The unexpected loss of a loved one can be extremely difficult for any family, and it can cause unfathomed emotional pain. Unfortunately, after an accident takes place, the judicial process can be extremely long and therefore can be a constant reminder to the family of their loss. One man was recently sentenced regarding a California motor vehicle accident he caused three years ago.
The massive trucks that navigate California roadways are used for various jobs that standard vehicles could not properly accomplish. When these trucks are involved in an accident with a standard vehicle, it can catastrophic consequences. The size of these trucks typically increases the severity of accidents, and any collision involving one of these massive vehicles can injure or even kill those involved. A recent motor vehicle accident involving a cement truck recently killed one individual along Highway 20.
Car accidents can be serious enough when regular vehicles are involved in the collision, but when a motorcycle is involved in the accident, it can be even more severe. Motorcyclists do not have the level of protection that drivers have, nor do they have the amount of mass that standard-sized vehicles have. This means that if a motorcycle is involved in an accident, a person can receive serious injuries from the collision. Unfortunately, a motor vehicle accident in California recently injured one motorcyclist.
