SR-163 Accident

San Diego Auto Accident Seriously Injures Clairemont Woman

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on August 26, 2010 - Comments off

A 39-year old Clairemont woman sustained serious injuries when her car collided with an empty dump truck near Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego on August 23, 2010 around 9:00 a.m. in the morning.
San Diego police lieutenant Andra Brown said a dump truck allegedly ran the red light from the State Route 163 (SR-163) off-ramp to Kearny Villa Road and hit a compact sedan driven by the woman. The female car driver suffered major injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. It is not clear whether the truck driver was hurt. Investigating officers closed the lanes to investigate the exact cause of this crash.
California law requires drivers to come to a complete stop at a stop sign and proceed with caution. According to California Vehicle Code section 21802 (a): “The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop as required by Section 22450. The driver shall then yield the right-of-way to any vehicles which have approached from another highway, or which are approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to those vehicles until he or she can proceed with reasonable safety.” It clearly appears that the truck driver violated the traffic rules and caused this accident. It is possible that the truck driver was distracted or was driving under influence. Since there has been violation of traffic rules, the truck driver or his employer might be liable to pay a legal compensation to the injured woman for medical expenses, cost of medical care, and for pain and suffering.
It is unfortunate that the truck driver’s negligent driving caused the woman so much suffering. We hope that she recovers to her complete health soon.
