California officer killed in tragic motor vehicle accident

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.

The accident occurred on October 28 at around 1:15 a.m. and involved two vehicles. The officer had apparently stopped an individual and was on his way back to his vehicle when another car collided with the two stopped cars. The vehicle then left the scene of the accident but was later apprehended after he caused another accident.

California politician may have caused motor vehicle accident

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.

The original accident took place on the night of Oct.16 and involved one pickup truck and a standard car. Initial investigations suggested that the politician was driving the pickup truck when it rear ended the car at an intersection. The car was carrying high school cheerleaders at the time of the accident, of which four were injured.

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.

The accident took place on the night of Oct. 9 at around 8:30 p.m. and involved three motor vehicles. The results of the preliminary investigation suggest that the first vehicle side swiped the second while attempting to pass it. This caused the driver of the first car to lose control, cross the median and strike the third vehicle head on.

Police say that a 16-year-old in Orange County recently caused a motor vehicle accident that killed five of his passengers.

Reportedly, the 16-year-old was unlicensed at the time of the accident, which took place on a recent Friday night and involved one motor vehicle. Initial investigations showed that speed may have been a factor in the accident, but the official cause of the crash is unknown at this time. Police stated that the victims were traveling back from an amusement park at the time of the accident.

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.

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 accident took place in 2011 and involved two motor vehicles. Reportedly, the now convicted man was driving at speeds around 90 mph when he ran a stop sign and struck the second vehicle. He then ran from the scene of the accident but was caught later by police.
