Two motorists suffered serious injuries in a chain reaction car crash that occurred on October 20‚ 2010‚ around 4:45p.m in Carlsbad. According to Carlsbad Police officer Lt. Bruce May this North San Diego County auto accident occurred in the 4900 block of El Camino Real.
May said that a 61-year-old van driver lost control of his vehicle and crossed over into the oncoming northbound traffic. The van driver later struck a 24-year-old man driving a small pickup truck‚ which was then struck by a northbound SUV. A 39-year-old female driver driving that SUV was not able to avoid collision with the pickup truck at that time.
Both the van and pickup truck drivers suffered serious injuries in this multiple vehicle car accident. The driver of the van was immediately airlifted to Sharp Memorial Hospital for treatment‚ while the pickup driver was transported to Palomar Hospital. SUV driver fortunately escaped unhurt in this multiple vehicle auto accident.
Authorities are trying to determine the exact cause of this multiple vehicle traffic collision. From the available information it appears that the loss of control of the van triggered this accident. What lead to loss of control is not clear. Investigating authorities need to determine whether the van driver lost control due to lack of sleep or was driving while intoxicated. It is also possible that an unkempt road or mechanical failure lead to loss of control. If this is found true then the authorities responsible for maintenance of the road may be held liable for a compensation to cover the cost of medical treatment of injuries‚ cost of hospitalization‚ and other related damages.
The injured victims are recommended to seek assistance from an aggressive San Diego car accident attorney who could help him obtain fair compensation to cover the accident related damages and also depute his own detectives to conduct fair and quick investigation.
We sincerely hope and pray that the injured victim did not sustain any life threatening injuries and that his injuries heal completely and quickly.
