Car accident kills one, injures others in California

Summertime brings warmer weather and more traffic on the road. Troubles can be experienced by drivers on the roads and highways due to increased usage of state highways. Authorities are frequently responding to crash sites to control the scene and aid the injured. When such events result in injuries and even death, the effects on individuals and families can be long lasting. A recent news story shares the story of a car accident in California left one man dead and others injured

According to authorities, the accident took place around 5 a.m. The incident occurred on the 215 Freeway in San Bernadino. Six cars were involved in the pileup, closing all northbound lanes of traffic. One of the cars burst into flames during the accident. 

One man was pronounced dead at the scene after coroner's officials arrived. Three other people were rushed to a nearby hospital, while two people were treated at the scene. Authorities have not yet determined the cause of the car accident. Traffic was temporarily diverted while officials tended to the injured and stabilized the scene. 

Car accidents happen for a wide variety of reasons. Negligence, distraction and drunk driving are all common causes of accidents in California. If a car accident has been the result of the carelessness of another driver, an injured person is not responsible for the costs of medical treatment or other damages. It is the right of any person injured in a car accident to contact a lawyer for assistance with making claims of damages.
