Two People Injured By Wrong-Way Driver in San Diego
Two people sustained serious injuries in a head-on San Diego car crash that took place on April 20 on state Route 56 (SR-56). According to California Highway Patrol, a woman driving an Infinity G-35 hit a small SUV head-on, trapping both drivers, near the Camino Del Sur off-ramp. Witnesses reported to CHP that the woman was driving the wrong way. Just five minutes later, the collision happened.
Both the injured victims were immediately transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. From the present facts, it is unclear as to how this traffic collision occurred. However, according to the at-fault driver’s Facebook, she posted a photo, which specifically states “Wednesday Night Drunk Bowling league.” It leads police to believe that the woman may have been driving drunk.
At this time, the victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County drunk driving car accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.
If it is established that negligent driving and irresponsible action of the Infinity driver caused this car accident, then she may be legally required to compensate the victim’s family for the cost of treatment and hospitalization, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, and other related damages.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by all the victims heal soon and do not prove fatal.
