Two Injured in Riverside Car Accident

By Brian Chase on January 23, 2011 - No comments

Two people were injured in a Riverside car accident that involved five vehicles the night of January 17, 2011. According to a news report in The Press-Enterprise, the injury car accident occurred on Perris Boulevard underneath the Highway 60 overpass in Moreno Valley. Police report that no critical injuries were sustained in the car accident but two people, including the driver who may have caused the accident, have been hospitalized. Investigators are trying to determine if alcohol or a suicide attempt contributed to the multi-vehicle accident.

My thoughts and prayers are with the many people involved in this injury car accident. I wish the injured victims a speedy and complete recovery.

Car Accident Statistics

According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), five people were killed and 629 were injured in Moreno Valley car accidents. During that same year, there were 220 fatalities and 8,561 injuries reported as a result of Riverside County car accidents.

What Caused This Multi-Car Accident?

Based on the news report, it is not clear how or why this injury car accident occurred. Police are looking into the possibility that the at-fault driver was under the influence and if one of those involved was attempting suicide. It is against the law to drive under the influence of alcohol or deliberately trigger a car accident. According to California Vehicle Code Section 23152 (a): “It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle.”

Fault and Liability

Anyone injured in a accident involving multiple vehicles would be well-advised to speak with a skilled Riverside personal injury lawyer, who will stay abreast of the official investigation and make sure that their legal rights are protected. If the at-fault driver was under the influence, he or she could be criminally prosecuted and held financially responsible for the injuries and damages caused.

Injured victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, physical therapy and other related damages. Investigations of multi-car accidents are typically complex because they involve several vehicles and victims. Witness testimony can prove contradictory. In such cases, it would be in the victims’ best interests to refrain from giving statements or rushing into premature settlements. The best personal injury law firms will always offer a free consultation and comprehensive case evaluation to injured car accident victims and their families.
