Los Angeles County Car Accident | California Auto Wreck Attorney Lawyer

By Ross Jurewitz on June 11, 2010

Lisa Hylla‚ 25 of North Hills‚ was killed in an auto accident on Interstate 405 (I-405) near Devonshire Street on May 3‚ 2010‚ around 2:20 a.m. Hylla was driving a 2007 Toyota Scion that collided with a 1984 Toyota pickup truck driven by a 64-year-old Richmond man accompanied by 63-year-old Richmond woman.  The then disabled pickup truck‚ which was in the number one lane‚ was apparently then struck by a Los Angeles Sheriff’s patrol car‚ a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria‚ which was also northbound in the same number one lane of the San Diego Freeway (I-405).

Hylla was thrown into the southbound lanes of traffic‚ according to the California Highway Patrol. It is uncertain if Hylla had the opportunity to get out of her car at some point‚ or if she was ejected from the vehicle. Hylla was not hit by any other vehicles on the southbound side of the freeway. The Richmond couple suffered moderate injuries‚ and the deputies suffered minor injuries‚ the CHP reported.

We would like to express our condolences and sincere sympathy for the families of Hylla and all those injured in the accident.  Regardless of fault and how the accident occurred‚ having a loved one injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident is always hard to accept.  We would recommend that everyone consult with a personal injury attorney to determine if they are entitled to much needed compensation which could pay for medical bills‚ lost wages‚ and funeral expenses.  It is unclear how the accident occurred and which party was at fault‚ but a trained lawyer can investigate and determine which party was negligent and responsible for the damages caused by this crash.
