Three car accident in California traps one

A moment of distraction can cause major damage, especially when the highway is concerned. One woman is learning this lesson after the accident that caused the injuries of two other women in California on September 18. The car accident resulted in one woman becoming trapped in her vehicle after being struck by another. 

The 25-year-old driver of a car pulled onto an exit and did not notice the cars stopped in front of her. She rear-ended another car driven by a 23-year-old woman. The collision caused the 23-year-old's car to be sent into traffic, and it was struck on the driver's side by another car. This one was driven by a 49-year-old woman. 

The third car was traveling at 65mph at the time of the accident, and the impact crumpled the car of the 23-year-old woman. The 23-year-old was trapped and had to be extricated by first responders. She was taken to hospital with moderate to major injuries. The older driver of the third car was also taken to the hospital with injuries. The initial driver, who sparked the second impact, suffered no injuries. 

The authorities are still investigating the cause of the car accident. They reported that the woman was not thought to be under the influence of drugs of alcohol, but it is possible that the woman was a distracted driver or that she was negligent in her driving duty for some other reason. In the event that she was at fault for the accident, the other women may be able to file a civil claim against her. Individuals in California facing similar motor vehicle injuries may also wish to pursue personal injury claims. In this state, they have the right to contact a personal injury attorney for an evaluation of the case.
