2 killed, 3 injured in auto accident

The roadways of California can be extremely dangerous, with auto accidents occurring on a daily basis. Recently, two women were killed in an auto accident near Kerman. Along with this, three children were injured as a result of the accident.

According to the Highway Patrol, a truck driven by a man ran through a stop sign and struck the car that the women and children were driving in. Subsequently, both vehicles flipped over.

A 29-year-old woman and a 67-year-old woman were both killed. Three children of unidentified ages were injured in the accident. Early reports indicate that the younger of the two women was the mother of one child and was babysitting the two others.

The 34-year-old driver of the truck suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He did not appear to be under the influence at the time, and told police that he drives the road almost every day, however, he did not take notice of the stop sign.

At this time, the man is not in custody for causing the accident, but he is expected to be charged with vehicular manslaughter in the future.

This story shows that a car accident can lead to serious injuries and even death. In this case, a man who was familiar with the road did not stop as he was supposed to, thus leading to an accident that killed two and injured three others.

When injured in an auto accident, consulting with a personal injury attorney is a step that people tend to want to look into.
