Three men and one woman sustained serious injuries in a severe rollover car wreck that occurred on March 14, 2012, around 5 p.m. in National City. According to Battalion Chief Larry Silva, a driver was getting onto the northbound Interstate 5 (I-5) in National City when his vehicle was hit by another oncoming vehicle.
The vehicles went off the freeway and landed on their sides in the 200 block of Roosevelt Avenue near Second Street. It took responding firefighters an hour to free the crash victims, including one victim trapped underneath a car. Two injured victims were immediately transported to Scripps Mercy Hospital, while two others were taken to UCSD Medical Center for medical treatment. None of the injuries are thought to be life-threatening.
From the present facts, it is unclear as to how this traffic collision occurred. However, it cannot be ruled out that negligence or reckless driving was the cause of the accident.
The victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced National City car accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.
The victim’s family members may file a personal injury claim against the at-fault motorist to obtain compensation to cover cost of treatment, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, and other related damages.
Our personal injury law office hopes that the injuries suffered by all the victims heal soon and do not prove fatal.
