3 Killed in 8 hours, each in a separate motor vehicle accident.

In the eight hours between 10 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, and 6 a.m. Monday Oct. 28, three accidents claimed the lives of three California people. In addition several people sustained injuries. Each motor vehicle accident occurred in a different location across the Los Angeles County.

The first accident occurred at 10 p.m. on Sunday night. A woman driver crashed into a power pole after drifting across the traffic lanes. The passenger in the car only sustained injuries, but the female driver was pronounced dead at the hospital.

At 2:45 a.m. the next morning another driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a parked vehicle before his car started to spin and hit a parked taxi cab. The vehicle only came to a stop after skidding onto the sidewalk and smashing into a pedestrian. The driver of the car died at the scene, while the pedestrian sustained injuries but was reported to be in a stable condition.

A little more than three hours later, at 6 a.m., a motorcyclist collided with a car. The driver of the car drove off and has not been found yet. The 55-year-old motorcyclist died at the scene. None of the victims in the three crashes were identified immediately.

These three overnight accidents left three dead, two injured and two damaged vehicles. Once investigations into the different accidents are complete, the surviving victims of each motor vehicle accident will retain the right to file claims in the California court against those deemed responsible. The families of the deceased may wish to file wrongful death claims. Doing so could help them with the final expenses of their loved ones. Regardless of who was at fault, the injured victims may wish to file personal injury claims as well.
