A woman's life was recently snuffed out in a tragic motor vehicle crash in California. Three men also suffered injuries in the car accident. The crash was reportedly caused by a drug-impaired driver, who ended up being arrested following the fatal accident.
The California accident took place on a Tuesday at about 7:30 a.m. along the 15 Freeway. Video from an uninvolved car's dashcam reportedly showed a car rear-ending another car that had come to a stop. According to police, a 25-year-old man who was suspected of driving while impaired by drugs ended up being arrested in connection with the crash after allegedly hitting multiple cars and sending one into a nearby parking structure.
A woman, 44, passed away in the crash. Meanwhile, two individuals suffered major injuries, and one person suffered minor injuries. Two other parties involved in the crash declined medical treatment. All in all, five ambulances showed up at the crash scene.
The loved ones of the woman who died in the car accident may opt to file a wrongful death claim against the man who reportedly caused the accident, seeking damages. Likewise, the victims who suffered serious injuries may decide to file personal injury claims against the arrested man. If they are successful in their cases, they may receive financial damages that might help them to cover their accident-related losses. These losses may range from hospital expenses to burial costs and even the loss of support for dependents. Monetary damages might also help with addressing pain and suffering caused by the California car accident.
