Collapsed Lung in a Traumatic Accident

A collapsed lung is a life-threatening injury that could occur following a traumatic accident. Also called a pneumothorax, a lung can collapse when air gets in the chest cavity outside of the lung tissue. The lungs are protected by a thin lining called the pleural tissue.

Garden Grove Double Fatality Crash

A Garden Grove double fatality crash occurred during the early morning hours of New Year’s Day. The incident happened shortly before 1:00 in the morning along the westbound lanes of the 22 Freeway in the vicinity of Valley View Street. A 30-year-old man from Orange was driving his BMW sedan at a high rate of speed when he rear-ended a Lexus traveling in the carpool lane. The impact of the collision propelled the Lexus into a concrete barrier along the right shoulder of the freeway. The BMW continued and struck a 2010 Ford F-150 truck, causing the truck to skid across traffic lanes and overturn onto its side. The BMW and the Ford later came to a rest after colliding with a guardrail. A driver of a Mazda sedan was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision with the overturned Ford and struck the center divider in the accident. Sadly, two occupants of the Ford succumbed to their injuries in the crash. Officials have identified the decedents as 33-year-old Jolene Gardner and her 9-year-old daughter, both residents of Hawthorne.
