Early Monday morning, an Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputy was injured in an auto accident after he was ejected from his vehicle.

The collision occurred around 3:00 a.m. in Mission Viejo. The deputy’s police vehicle struck a pole on Marguerite Parkway and Alarcon and was removed from the car.

Officials have not released the identity of the victim at this point. He was immediately taken to Mission Hospital to be treated for unknown injuries. Though based on the conditions of the accident, his injuries are likely serious; however, he is expected to survive.

The accident is still under investigation at this point, but the scene has been cleared. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash and no other injuries have been reported.

In most cases, an ejected victim leads to more unfortunate outcomes. This deputy is quite lucky to have only sustained injuries from the collision.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident, contact an Orange County Accident Attorney who will assist you with identifying negligence, filing claims; and can ensure that you receive the highest possible compensation for the damages that you have suffered, including punitive damages in the event of a fatality.

In Southern California, two accidents occurred over the weekend that caused major distress for police officers and those involved. A Los Angeles crash produced one fatality and a San Diego collision left an injured child abandoned in a wrecked vehicle.

On Saturday afternoon in East Los Angeles, a crash occurred after police were led on a high-speed pursuit. A reckless driver in an SUV that may have been stolen sped away from the police after they attempted to pull him over. The chase lasted five minutes and concluded when the SUV crashed into a truck and another car.

The accident took place in El Sereno around the 5300 block of Poplar Boulevard. Paramedics arrived on the scene and immediately found one dead bystander.

Four others were injured from the accident, three men and one woman. One man was in critical condition, while the other three injured parties were reported to be in fair conditions.

The driver of the SUV tried to escape once more after exiting his wrecked vehicle, but officers caught up to him. He was arrested and suffered injuries from bites of a police dog.

The accident is still under investigation, but the driver will likely face criminal charges for both the status of the SUV and the results of the crash.

On Sunday evening in Old Town, San Diego, a vehicle collision occurred resulting with an injured child and a runaway driver. The accident was reported by witnesses who saw a truck dangling off of the edge of the Interstate 5 Southbound freeway.

California Highway Patrol rushed to the scene where they were told by witnesses that a man ran from the crash, despite there being an injured child in the backseat.

Officers found a two-year-old child strapped into the vehicle’s backseat as it hung off of the highway. The child’s condition is currently unknown; however, it was transported to Rady Children’s Hospital immediately.

The driver of the truck is suspected to be a Hispanic male in his 30s. He was seen wearing a white shirt, black shorts, and sandals. CHP is working hard to find the runaway and is currently investigating the registration information of the vehicle.

Accidents are incredibly unfortunate, no matter the situation. If you or someone you know was involved in an accident, whether it caused fatalities or included runaway drivers; contact a Los Angeles accident attorney today for assistance. Our lawyers will help you in finding medical attention and filing claims; and will ensure that you receive the highest possible compensation for the damages that you suffered, including punitive damages for instances of death.

Dog Crashes Truck into House

Just Two Dogs in a Car

Redding, California experienced something new on Wednesday afternoon: a dog accelerated a truck into a house.

The dog was seated in the front seat of the truck originally. Apparently he felt the need to use the bathroom, and could not wait for his driver to stop. He began his business on the center consul but his foot slipped. The dog then fell down near the driver’s feet and he pushed down on the accelerator.

The driver attempted to halt the vehicle but he failed, and the truck smashed into a house.

According to a neighbor, the driver claimed that he had the brake pedal all the way to the floor, but could not stop.

No one in the house or the truck was injured. The same neighbor explains that the boys were out of the house at the time, which is fortunate because they may have been at risk for injuries.

The neighborhood seems to understand that it was an accident and are just all thankful that no one was hurt.

The accident occurred at Bobwhite Way and Partridge Drive around 2 p.m.

This crash seems humorous because it was caused by a dog, but accidents like this can lead to much more serious consequences. Vehicular collisions are destructive enough, but having one go through a house can damage much more than property. Thankfully in this instance, there were no fatalities or injuries.

If you or someone you know has been in a collision, whether it was caused by dog or human, contact a northern California accident lawyer today.

A fatal car accident has been officially cleared off of the road early this morning. The scene included a burnt car split in half and dead bodies.

In Newport Beach on Monday afternoon, a car carrying five passengers struck a tree and then proceeded to split in two and catch fire. All passengers have been declared dead.

The Infiniti crashed on Jamboree Road and Island Lagoon Drive. Upon impact, four out of the five travelers were ejected from the vehicle and died on site; however, one passenger was found only partially ejected and was taken to a hospital by ambulance. The injuries were too grave, though and the fifth passenger died before reaching a doctor.

The passengers have yet to be identified; however, it has been reported that they are five teenagers from the Irvine area. There were three women and two men involved in the accident.

The accident did not include any other vehicles and the cause is still being investigated. At this point, it is unknown whether speed or alcohol was a factor in the crash; but every possibility is being explored.

The scene was officially cleared at 3:50 a.m. this morning.

This accident has been named the worst that has been seen by officers. Fatal accidents are always tragic, but ones that involve so many victims and those that are so young are especially unfortunate.

If you or someone you know has been in an accident, contact an injury lawyer in order to make your first step toward recovery.

Late last night in Florence, California, a bicyclist was killed by a motorist. The driver of the vehicle was fleeing from the police due to his involvement in a shooting that took place moments before.

The victim’s identity is unknown at this moment, but he was described by authorities as a Hispanic male aged 30 to 40 years old.

The driver, whose identity has not been revealed yet either, was being chased by the cops after a shooting that occurred around East 84th Street and South Avalon Boulevard. Apparently, there was a dispute between the driver and his girlfriend and the man fired three shots into her car.

The police found him driving and followed him with cruisers and a helicopter. Once he reached East 84th Street and South Central Avenue, his dangerous driving killed the cyclist.

The driver dragged the victim across the street and then attempted to run once more. The police caught up to him and took him into custody. They are still searching for the gun that was used in the initial shooting.

Accidents are a tragic part of our lives as drivers and as cyclists. Thankfully the police was able to arrest the criminal in this instance, because many times drivers get away with it. If you are the victim of a car accident or a bicycle accident, contact the Accident Attorneys’ Group. We can help you file the correct claims, refer you to medical assistance, and award to you the highest compensation possible for your suffering.

Early Sunday morning, Anaheim experienced a major collision at Gilbert Street and La Palma Avenue.

The driver, whose identification is currently unknown, had been drinking that evening. The suspect reached the intersection, and instead of stopping at the red light, crashed into two stopped vehicles.

The two vehicles were filled with passengers. It has been reported that eight people were injured in the accident, but their current conditions have not been disclosed.

The driver who caused the accident was arrested on site and faces the charges of a felony DUI.

Paramedics responded quickly and rushed the wounded to the hospital. At this point, there does not appear to be any fatalities.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal and very dangerous. Sometimes offenders get away with a ticket, and other times their actions cause damage to innocent people. A felony DUI conviction, for what this driver was arrested, can lead to 180 days in jail, a $3,000 fine, a four-year license restriction period and an 18-month alcohol education program. Felony convictions can have serious impacts on one’s future as well, including employment.

If you or something you know has been involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver, contact an injury attorney today to learn more about your rights as the victim.

Last night, a Dodge Charger chased a Pontiac until they each ended up in a multiple car pileup. The people in the Pontiac are suspected of committing a drive-by shooting occurring at a fundraiser at West 79th and South Hoover Street that initiated the chase. Moments later, the two cars ran a red light and crashed into the cross traffic.

The cars collided in the intersection of Broadway and Manchester. The Pontiac hit a Saturn that was driving east on Manchester and the Saturn driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Charger ran into a pickup truck and the truck then collided with two parked cars and a man on a bicycle. The Charger driver is currently in critical condition, but everyone else involved in the accident suffered only minor injuries.

The driver and a passenger of the Pontiac fled from the scene and are currently being hunted for the drive-by shooting as well as the accident. A gun was found in the Pontiac that points to its inhabitants’ involvement in the shooting. A passenger from the Charger attempted to run as well, but was stopped by police on site.

This accident includes all tragic aspects of vehicles collisions. A fatality, hit-and-run, pedestrian, injuries, property damage and, even worse, it stemmed from a shooting. Los Angeles residents can only hope that justice will be served and disasters like this do not happen in the future.

If you or someone you know has been in accident, find out what you can do to get the compensation that you require. Contact an accident attorney today for more information.

Being Prepared for an Automobile Accident

Late Tuesday evening, Los Angeles witnessed a horrific automobile accident. Three victims were declared dead at the scene and one was rushed to the hospital – his situation unknown.

In South Los Angeles, a vehicle crashed into a pole and then burned from the resulting fire. Four people were involved in the accident, three of whom were impossible to save as the fire was too impenetrable, and one who had been ejected from the car and free from the flames’ grasp.

It is unclear currently what caused the accident, but evidence seems to point to the driver moving at high speeds. There also may have been a second car that fled the scene.

Tragic accidents like this remind people how easy it is to lose control of a vehicle. Sometimes the accidents that cause the most damage to the car will leave the driver and passengers unharmed; and sometimes hitting a pole can result in a much more destructive ending than expected.

Cars and car accidents are unpredictable. Other drivers are also unpredictable. Collisions can happen to anyone, so it is important to know what to do after one has occurred.

First, never leave the scene. Leaving the scene of an accident is a criminal offense. If Tuesday night’s accident did involve another driver, he/she will be criminally prosecuted if found. The police should be contacted immediately to assess the accident, damages, and injuries. Filing a police report is essential, especially if a trial arises from the crash.

It is crucial to take notes or pictures if possible. Having physical proof of what happened is one-hundred-percent reliable compared to memories. This is also why filing a police report is helpful as it’s an immediate recount of what just occurred. During the couple of days following the incident, write down details remembered and any injuries suffered, as they may not become apparent until then.

After that, filing an insurance claim is required. Whether at fault or not, each driver must file a claim to cover damages suffered. Having an attorney can be very helpful during this time, especially if the damages suffered are severe. Read more about how a great lawyer can help in any accident.
