Two People Hospitalized After Camarillo Car Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Camarillo car accident lawyer. An accident in Camarillo on April 15 between two vehicles resulted in hospitalization for both. We want to extend our sympathy to those who were injured, along with their families, and hope that both persons make a speedy recovery.
The crash occurred about 6:30 a.m. near the intersection of Pancho Road and Pleasant Valley Road, according to a representative of the Ventura County Fire Department, Fire Station 54 in Camarillo. While both vehicles were damaged in the collision, one received damage that was considered moderate while the other had extensive damage. Following the crash, the individual in the extensively damaged vehicle had to be extricated from it, according to authorities.
Extent of Injuries
The driver of the badly damaged vehicle was transported to Thousand Oaks to the Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center while the driver of the other vehicle was transported to St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital. The condition of both was unknown at the time of this report.
Accidents Near Intersections
Crashes in or near intersections are far too common. The Federal Highway Administration reports that about 25 percent of all accidents occur at intersections, and about half of those accidents result in injuries. In 2013, the most recent year for traffic data from the California Office of Traffic Safety, 10,664 people were seriously injured in California, and 3,074 died in 2014.
Motor Vehicle Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries
When an individual has been a victim of an accident at or near an intersection, it can cause serious injuries, particularly since many of these accidents involve one vehicle hitting another broadside. When facing mounting medical expenses due to a brain injury, comorbidity, broken bones or a spinal cord injury, the first thing you need to do is contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your rights and obtain compensation that will see you though.
