Driver Flees When Car Rams into El Cajon Building | San Diego Lawyer

By Ross Jurewitz on September 26, 2011

One person was severely injured in a serious car accident that occurred on September 19‚ 2011‚ around 11:30 p.m. near Claydelle Avenue. An eastbound Nissan Maxima veered off East Main Street in El Cajon‚ crossed a center median near Claydelle Avenue‚ and narrowly missed several large trees before it rammed into the commercial building.

The car driver fled from the scene and left his male passenger seriously injured in the mangled sedan. The injured victim was treated for non-life-threatening head trauma and minor bruises and scratches.

From the available information‚ it is evident that the reckless driving and negligent actions of the car driver led to this serious crash. Leaving the scene of an accident is not only a violation of California law but also morally incomprehensible. California Vehicle Code 20001 (a) states: “The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person‚ other than himself or herself‚ or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident.”

The injured person should immediately seek counsel from an experienced El Cajon car accident lawyer who would educate him about his legal rights and options and assure that the at-fault car driver is brought to justice. The injured person can file a personal injury claim against the car driver to obtain a timely compensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ loss of wages‚ loss of earning capacity‚ and other accident-related damages.

Our personal injury law office sincere hopes that the injuries suffered by the victim heal soon.
