On the night of July 7, it was reported that a vehicle slammed into a California Donut King shop after being involved in a two-car accident. The reported stated that five people were ultimately taken to a nearby hospital. One of the victims taken to the hospital, a 30-year-old female, later died as a result of her injuries.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Western and Marine avenues in Gardena at around 7 p.m. The impact caused one of the vehicles to crash into the structure. The donut shop was reportedly open when the incident occurred, but no one in the store suffered any injuries as a result of the crash.

No matter how serious a motor vehicle accident is, there is always the possibility that those involved could suffer serious injuries. These could include whiplash, broken bones and damage to internal organs.

In order to seek compensation for damages that they incur in a car accident, the injured victims must demonstrate that they did not cause the crash. A personal injury attorney may attempt to make a determination as to culpability by examining police accident investigation reports as well as obtaining witness testimony. If it subsequently appears that the accident was caused by a distracted, impaired or otherwise negligent driver, it may then be advisable to file a personal injury action on behalf of the injured victim against the responsible party that would seek compensation for the damages that have been sustained.
