Wreck kills one, injures three

There are very clear reasons why California has worked hard to institute strong laws to combat drunk or drugged driving. People who get behind the wheel of vehicles while impaired by these substances put not only themselves but other innocent people at risk for serious injury or even death.

An example of this can be seen in a crash tha happened recently near Irondale Avenue and Roscoe Boulevard in the early morning hours one day in Winnetka. A total of three people were injured and a fourth person died in the wreck. The three injured people were all in the vehicle that was driven the a man who law enforcement officers suspect was either under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The driver was one of those injured after his vehicle eventually ignited into flames.

The investigation into the accident will focus in part on the potential impairment of the driver who was at fault as well as the potential role that speed may have had in the incident. The at-fault driver first hit one vehicle in the side but continued going. The driver of the first car hit was not hurt. The potentially impaired driver then hit an SUV driven by a woman who was killed as her vehicle was thrust into a tree. The first car still did not stop and eventually a fire broke out in it.

After a crash like this, the people who experienced injuries, property damage or the loss of a loved one may well find it useful to talk with an attorney about compensation options.
