Westminster, CA (December 3, 2022) – On Thursday evening, December 1, an accident was reported in Westminster that resulted in two people sustaining injuries and caused significant traffic delays.
According to the Police, the accident occurred in the evening, around 8:30 p.m. The accident occurred when two vehicles entered the intersection at Westminster Boulevard and Deodara Drive at the same time and collided, which resulted in the vehicles incurring major damage. One vehicle was a Toyota Camry, but there is no information about the other vehicle.
Paramedics were called to the scene to help those hurt in the accident. Firefighters helped the people from the wreckage and assessed injuries. One woman had been trapped in the wreckage and required the jaws of life to extract her. She was a passenger in the Toyota Camry. She was transported by ambulance to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. The driver of the Toyota Camry was also taken to the hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was assessed at the scene by paramedics but declined further medical care. The person remained at the scene and has been cooperative with the investigation.
The force of the impact caused major damage to the vehicles, blocked the roadway, and caused traffic to be backed up. Traffic was diverted while crews helped people from their cars, tended to injuries, and cleaned up the wreckage.
The authorities are still investigating the exact circumstances surrounding the crash and the events leading up to the collision.
Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for everyone’s full recovery.
California has more registered vehicles than any other state in the country. It is one of the country’s most dangerous places to drive. Every day roads are flooded with traffic and are busy with long commutes and traffic jams. Every day, car accidents also happen in California and may result in serious injuries.
When you’re injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you have options on how to proceed. You can choose one of the following:
Despite what the commercials and other advertising materials may claim, the insurance companies are not there for you and are not looking out for your best interest after an accident. They make money by paying as little as possible on personal injury claims. You will not be dealing with your agent, but instead, an insurance adjuster who is trained to look for loopholes to deny your claim or limit your compensation.
Being in a car accident is a stressful event. After the accident, the stress continues as you are recovering and dealing with the insurance company. From new financial worries to physical injuries, all these new issues may leave you wondering how you will move forward. A trusted car accident lawyer can help you regain control, and help you understand the next steps, including your legal rights and options.
