Many people who are enjoying a day out may not realize the risks they face even during mundane activities. Unfortunately, no one is immune to suffering serious injuries in an unexpected accident, and in some cases, those accidents can occur under startling circumstances. In fact, multiple people were recently injured while inside a San Diego establishment due to a car accident at a nearby intersection.
According to reports, two vehicles were involved in a collision when a 60-year-old driver failed to stop at a stop light. That driver was apparently traveling at a high speed when the vehicle crashed into another vehicle. The impact caused the second vehicle to leave the roadway and crash through a café front. The driver of the speeding vehicle reportedly fled the scene, but authorities were able to apprehend her later.
The incident had the following outcomes:
- Seven people were transported from the scene to the hospital for treatment of injuries.
- Five of the seven people suffered serious harm.
- Two of the injured parties had been inside the vehicle that left the roadway, and the rest were patrons of the café.
The exact nature of the serious injuries these victims suffered was not described in the report. Nonetheless, they may need extensive medical treatment and a long time to recover from the harm they suffered due to one driver’s recklessness and negligence. As a result, they may wish to consider their legal options for seeking compensation for damages from the driver considered at fault in this San Diego car accident. Monetary restitution could help them cover medical bills, lost wages and other documented financial losses.
