A car accident that occurred near San Diego State University on July 22 left six with injuries. The three-vehicle accident occurred at the intersection of College and University avenues in San Diego at about 1:30 p.m.
According to witnesses, a gold Toyota was traveling east on University Avenue when the driver allegedly ran the red light at the College Avenue intersection. The Toyota crashed into a Lexus that was heading north on College Avenue. The force from the initial impact caused the Lexus to hit a small vehicle that was stopped at the light. The accident caused the intersection to be shut down for several hours while the investigation was underway.
Two occupants who were in the Lexus suffered injuries that were described as critical. They were taken to a nearby hospital in San Diego. The occupants of the Toyota also suffered serious injuries. They were transferred to a different hospital for treatment. In addition, there were two occupants in the third vehicle who suffered minor injuries.
When severe car accidents occur, those who are involved could suffer serious or even life-threatening complications. Depending on the severity of the injuries, a victim may find that he or she cannot work or live life as normal even after going through medical treatment. If another driver was found to be liable for the crash, a personal injury attorney may help the injured person file the claim. If the at-fault driver had insurance, the attorney may negotiate with the insurance company to cover the injured person's medical costs and any other related damages. In the event that the case is not settled through negotiations, the attorney may take it to court.
