In the case of a multi-vehicle accident, the chance of multiple injuries or deaths is much greater. This number increases along with the number of cars and people who are involved.
A recent accident in the Little Italy section of San Diego led to the death of one man as well as injuries suffered by others. The accident occurred on Sunday night on North Harbor Drive.
According to the San Diego Port Authority, a five-hour Sig Alert was expected to be in place until midnight on Harbor Drive.
Police noted that the fatal crash that took place at the intersection of Harbor Drive and Grape Street involved four cars and happened at approximately 7 p.m. Authorities said a man driving in a Hyundai was killed and that two others were sent to a hospital for the treatment of unknown injuries.
While there is not a lot of information available as of yet, police believe that a driver of a Dodge may have suffered a medical issue, which led to the vehicle crashing into multiple cars that were stopped at a red light on Harbor Drive.
This story goes a long way in showing that the roadways can be dangerous, even when stopped at an intersection. The driver of the Dodge made a mistake in some way, shape, or form which led to the death of one man and injuries to two others.
Those who have been injured in an auto accident should contact an experienced and knowledgeable local personal injury attorney. He or she can safeguard your rights and take steps toward financial as well as emotional closure to a sudden and horrifying accident that often changes lives forever.
