Goleta Car Crash


Goleta Car Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Goleta auto accident lawyer.  Auto accidents that involve more than one vehicle are commonplace, especially in highly populated areas. Generally, if auto accidents occur at busy intersections the damage can range from a simple fender-bender to traumatic injuries that require urgent medical attention. This was the case, on March 17, 2017, when two motorists collided into one another at the intersection of Hollister Avenue and Los Carneros Road in Goleta.

What Happened?

Around 8:40 p.m. Friday night, officials received reports of a car accident on Hollister Avenue at Los Carneros Road. The accident led to the intersection being shut down so the fire department, ambulances, and the local police could address the situation. It was reported that both drivers sustained injuries. Both drivers were taken via ambulance to a nearby Goleta hospital, where they receive medical treatment for injuries.

Who Caused the Crash?

The car accident remains under investigation at this time. The investigating agency may take up to ten days to produce a traffic collision report. Sometimes errors exist in the report pertaining to fault for the accident. This can leave an injured person with much angst. It is important to contact an experienced attorney if you have suffered injuries in an accident and you believe the other driver was at fault. Your attorney can investigate the events leading up to the crash and help prove liability.
