Martin Mendoza‚ 38‚ from Dulzara‚ and four children suffered injuries when their Chrysler minivan crashed into a fire hydrant in Jamul in east San Diego County. The impact of the collision was so strong that it ripped a hole in the fire hydrant and created a huge geyser along the road.
This car accident occurred in the 1400 block of Campo Road on September 22‚ 2010‚ around 3:00 p.m. Two of the injured victims were Mendoza’s children and the other two were his niece and nephew. According to California Highway Patrol officer Brian Pennings‚ the injured children were transported to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego for treatment.
Pennings said that alcohol and drugs were not factors behind this auto accident. It cannot be ruled out that this traffic collision might have occurred due to unsafe road or a mechanical failure. If this car accident happened due to a bad condition of the road or any mechanical defect in the car‚ then the responsible automobile manufacturer or the government entity in charge of maintaining the road may be held responsible for the hurt children’s medical damages and pain and suffering.
We advise Mendoza and the parents of the hurt kids to seek the assistance of an aggressive San Diego car accident lawyer who could help them know their legal rights and get fair compensation for the damages they suffered.
We sincerely hope and pray that none of the injured children and Mendoza sustained life threatening injuries and they recover soon from this traffic accident.
