Our thoughts are also with the other victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Southern California is home to some of the country’s busiest and most dangerous roadways. Development continues in the region and has led to a continued increase in the number of cars on the roads, which further adds to the congestion. The daily commutes for Californians are often riddled with accidents. Accidents involving multiple vehicles are also very common on California’s roadways. Because of all the cars on the roads, when two vehicles are in an accident, the potential for an accident to turn into a multiple-vehicle incident is very high. There are many reasons for accidents to happen in California, including speeding, texting while driving, impaired driving, or failing to yield or stop at traffic lights and stop signs. Of all the various causes, the majority of road fatalities in the US are caused by reckless driving.
