3-car accident in California leads to injuries

An auto accident that involves more than one vehicle obviously will also involve more than one person. In the event of multiple passengers in each vehicle, the chance of injury is much greater.

On Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 at approximately 5:25 p.m., emergency crews, including police, fire and rescue, responded to an accident that took place on Three Notch Road in Miramar Way. Before arriving, crews were aware that those involved were injured.

Upon arriving, crews found that all three vehicles were still on the roadway. As a result of the accident, five people were taken to MedStar St. Mary's Hospital. All of these people were thought to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries. However, another person was flown to a local trauma center for treatment. Another person refused to be taken to a local hospital, but did receive treatment on the scene.

At this time, there is no report as to what or who caused the accident. For this reason, police continue to investigate in hopes of determining who caused the accident, as well as the circumstances leading up to the event.

Determining fault is one of the responsibilities police have when responding to an accident. It can take some time for such a declaration to occur. Obviously, someone was likely at fault for the accident.

The cause of this auto accident is still under investigation, however, those who were injured have already received the treatment they need to start the healing process. A personal injury attorney may be able to help those who have been injured due to the negligence of others receive compensation for their pain and suffering, lost wages, emotional distress, medical bills and other damages.
