2 Injured In T-Bone Accident Requiring Jaws Of Life

This post is written on behalf of Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr.

A serious crash is dangerous to the people involved. On top of suffering injuries, they may need help but be unable to receive it while trapped in their vehicles. In those cases, people may develop complications or more severe injuries than if they could have received help immediately.

This crash is a good example of how serious one can be. Three vehicles crashed in Sylmar, leading to two people struggling with life-threatening injuries and a child being involved in the collision. According to the news from Mar. 3, a man was leaving a marijuana dispensary when he T-boned a passing vehicle. This pushed it into traffic and caused both a husband and wife to face severe injuries.

The couple had a 7-month-old child in the rear of the vehicle. Fortunately, the infant was not injured, the Los Angeles Police Department indicated.

So far, the police have noted that the man who struck the vehicle did not appear to be driving under the influence. Additionally, it didn’t appear that he’d committed a traffic violation, but the investigation was not yet complete. Fortunately, only the husband and wife were injured in the collision, though their injuries were severe enough that it’s been suggested that if one or both were to die, the case would move to the district attorney’s office. In that case, the driver who caused the collision could be charged with vehicular manslaughter.

This crash was severe, requiring firefighters to use the Jaws of Life to remove the husband and wife from their vehicle. It took approximately 45 minutes to remove them and get them to the hospital.

If you or someone you love was injured in a wreck that wasn’t your fault, then an experienced attorney can help you learn more about your legal options.
