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.

Crime Up in L.A. Area, Irvine Named Safest City in U.S.

Over Downtown Los Angeles

Depending on the area an individual lives in, crime rates can vary. In fairly recent reports, the city of Irvine, located in Orange County, was named the safest city in the United States for the eighth year in a row. A resident living in Irvine may experience less circumstances involving criminal behavior as compared to someone living in Los Angeles. Los Angeles County recently had a significant increase of crime. For those living in a more crime-prone area, it will be smart to research the amount of criminal activities that occur, avoiding and decreasing the chances of personal injury or attack.

According to the LA Time’s crime reports database, crime rates are up in the Los Angeles county area. Twelve L.A. neighborhoods reported an increase in crime in the week of June 2 – June 8. Six of the neighborhoods saw an increase in violent crime and six other neighborhoods had an increase in property crimes.

Crimes reported in the LA area included aggravated assault, theft, robbery, grand theft auto, and a few others. The LA Time’s crime reports database covers about 200 neighborhoods around the L.A. area. The database keeps track of both short-term and long-term statistics on different L.A. neighborhoods.

The neighborhood of Lake Balboa, which normally has an average of 0.8 violent crimes a week reported, saw four instances of violent crime in the June 2 – June 8 week. Downtown L.A. had the highest number of reports in one week, totaling 31 violent crimes. However, downtown has an average of 21.5 violent crimes reported a week.

In the week of June 2 – June 8, Lake Balboa had four violent crimes and seven property crimes. That averages to about 4.2 crimes for every 10,000 people. In the downtown area, there were 31 violent crimes and 71 property crimes reported. That averages to 4.9 crimes for every 10,000 people. Most of the crimes in downtown LA involved theft.

For property crimes, the Pacific Palisades neighborhood had 14 instances reported when it normally has an average of 5.8 per week. Central-Alameda had 33 property crimes, up from its weekly average of 16.8.

The type of neighborhood an individual lives in can greatly determine the kinds of crime he or she will experience. Take into account the city of Irvine; as the safest city in the U.S., the chances of an Irvine resident being robbed or assaulted is very slim in comparison to a resident living in L.A. But whichever city a person resides in, chances of accidents, personal injury, and crime will never go away. It is important to know that there are Los Angeles personal injury attorneys who can help individuals deal with the aftermath of a home break-in or with any personal injuries received from assault.
