39-year-old driver Houston Ma and 41-year-old Keona Y. Lau suffered severe injuries in a car collision that occurred on December 2, 2011, around 5:05 p.m. along Interstate 15 (I-15) near Baker, along northbound lanes near Zzyzx Road.
According to California Highway Patrol officers, the 2011 Chevy SUV that the two victims were in slammed into a 2000 Kenworth truck driven by 44-year-old Darrin B. Simkins. Ma and Lau suffered serious injuries and were immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Fortunately, the truck driver escaped unhurt in this wreck.
From the present information, it is unclear what caused this major car accident that left two people seriously injured. Since it was a rear-end car accident, a loss of control or any third party could have been responsible for causing the accident.
If it is found that there was a loss of control due to a vehicular malfunction, then the auto maker may be held liable for this accident. Meanwhile, the victims’ family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Bernardino County car accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights. This lawyer may also help the injured victims obtain compensation to cover treatment, medical, and hospital costs.
Our personal injury law office hopes and prays that the injuries suffered by both the victims do not prove fatal.
