Four Poway High School Students Injured in Car Crash on Twin Peaks Road

By Ross Jurewitz on September 11, 2012

Four male Poway High School students between 15 and 17 years old suffered serious injuries in a car accident that took place on September 5. The accident took place around 2:30 p.m. on Twin Peaks Road in Poway near Community Road.

Sherriff’s officials explained that a westbound green colored Ford Escort, which held the four teenagers, drifted into the eastbound lanes and sideswiped another car before it was broadsided by a Ford F-150 truck. Deputies have identified the driver as 17-year-old Mikey and his brother Matt Bryant. Both of these injured victims were immediately airlifted to Scripps La Jolla Hospital to receive treatment for the severe head trauma they suffered from the accident.

The other two teens suffered moderate injuries and were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Our law office sincerely hopes that everyone involved in this accident has a speedy recovery.

Due to the strong impact of the crash, one of the Escort’s doors got stuck on the truck’s grill and firefighters had to cut off the roof to get the female driver out of the vehicle. The female driving the truck and her 12-year-old sister suffered minor bruises and got transported to Palomar Hospital for treatment.

According to the Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System, car accidents contributed to 71 fatalities and left 5,819 people injured in 2009.

The kind of injuries resulting from auto accidents may vary due to the weight and size difference of the vehicles involved. We all know that there are numerous driving laws for safety purposes, but sometimes it is not enough to stop drivers from causing fatal auto accidents.

In cases like these, the financial future of the injured victims involved depends on the outcome of the personal injury claim filed. It would be to the teenagers’ benefit to seek counsel from a knowledgeable child accident lawyer who would explore and explain all their legal options and for the truck driver to seek a car accident lawyer for compensation.
