California suspected DUI crash injures 4

Posted on in Car Accidents

Authorities report that a two-vehicle accident in La Jolla around 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 21 left two adults and two children injured. Firefighters had to cut one man out of his vehicle before an ambulance could transport him to Scripps La Jolla for medical treatment. The other driver and her two children were also taken to local hospitals, where they were treated for minor injuries.

According to local police, the car accident occurred when the 44-year-old male driver lost control of his vehicle at a curve in the road and struck the female SUV driver. A witness said she observed the man running two red lights just prior to the accident. At the time of the report, police continued to investigate the crash. They believed that the man may have been driving while under the influence.

When a person is injured as a result of a car accident involving a suspected drunk driver, the injured party may face a long recovery and hefty expenses. A personal injury attorney may be able to assist an injured person by bringing a claim against the liable driver. The claim may seek compensation for brain injury, other serious injuries, pain and suffering and medical expenses.

A driver who is suspected of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of any accident that results in injuries may be held liable for those injuries. A thorough accident investigation that includes witness testimony and the results of any blood or other medical tests will help determine an at-fault party.
