Any car accident can lead to serious injury or even death, even when the vehicles involved are traveling at relatively slow speeds. When more than one car is involved, the chance of injury increases due to the fact that more people are associated with the accident.
On the morning of Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013, a two-vehicle auto accident in Temecula sent four people to a local hospital. It is believed that two of the people suffered major injuries as a result.
According to officials at the Riverside County Fire Department, the crash was reported to authorities at 8:55 a.m. and occurred at Meadows Parkway and Rancho California Road. Due to the nature of the accident, at least one of the people involved had to be cut from the wreckage. When this happens, it typically signifies a serious collision, since the person is unable to be removed from his or her vehicle through a door.
A spokesperson for the Riverside County Fire Department noted that in addition to the two people with major injuries, another had minor injuries and the fourth person suffered moderate injuries.
Despite the fact that four people were injured in the accident, it is good to see that there were no deaths despite the seriousness of the collision, and the number of people involved. Anybody who has been involved in a car accident should contact a personal injury attorney who can protect their rights, answer their questions and help them seek compensation for any injuries and other damages.
