Seven people suffered injuries, two of which were critically injured, in a Victorville car crash that occurred on August 17, 2011, around 11:56 p.m. at Hook Boulevard and Rosemary Drive in Victorville, about two miles west of Interstate 15 (I-15)and Roy Rogers Drive. According to San Bernardino County Fire Department dispatchers, the two persons who suffered critical injuries in this two- vehicle wreck were airlifted to a nearby hospital to receive medical treatment.
The other five injured victims were transported to a local hospital to receive treatment for the injuries suffered. Based on the limited information provided, the cause of the accident is not clear. There are several questions here. Who caused the accident? Who was at fault? Did alcohol or drugs play a part? Was one of the drivers fatigued at the time of the crash? Was speed or distraction a factor? Was there an auto defect or mechanical malfunction that caused the driver to lose control? We trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine how or why this car collision occurred.
The injured victims should seek counsel from an experienced San Bernardino County car wreck lawyer who would advise them about their legal rights and options. All the injured victims may be eligible for a compensation to cover medical, treatment and hospital costs, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, and other accident-related expenses.
Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes and prays that the injuries suffered by all the victims heal soon.
