Stockton Aggressive Driving Collision 

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton personal injury lawyer. The following accident shows how a feud between two parties can escalate. In this case, the involved parties continued their conflict as they drove the local streets, resulting in a collision. Even so, the victims deserve fair compensation after an injury-accident.

What Happened?

On March 3, 2016, two parties became involved in a conflict for an unknown reason. An individual later sustained bullet wounds as the feuding parties took their argument over to southbound Interstate 5 where their vehicles eventually collided with each other. Another person also suffered injuries in the accident.

What Caused the Accident?

The Stockton Police Department responded to a shooting during the early afternoon involving an SUV and a car. Authorities indicated that the shooting occurred in the middle of the day, but fortunately, no one else was hurt as the incident happened in a busy neighborhood.

At the scene, authorities observed a black Cadillac Escalade with driver’s side damage and a blown-out tire and blood at the scene. The vehicle did not have license plates but did have child car seats in the back although no children were present. A little ways up the interstate, authorities found the Audi. They also found a nail gun at the accident site.

A male occupant of the SUV was taken to a medical facility due to the inflicted gunshot wound. His injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. A female occupant of the SUV was also treated and released from the hospital. Authorities later questioned her about the incident but her involvement was not clear.

Authorities detained and questioned a third person at a convenience store near the site. They also located a gun there. No one was arrested in the incident.

Further Legal Considerations

After an auto accident stemming from an altercation between two individuals, one party might decide to file a lawsuit against the other for civil damages. The accident victim/s could have suffered serious broken bones, brain injuries or even a fatality. In these cases, the victims will want to secure experienced legal advice in order to ensure that their rights are protected.
