Man Runs Red Light, Kills Another Driver And Himself

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Car Accident

When you hit the road each day, we know that the last thing you think about is getting injured. However, even when you take the steps necessary to stay safe when you drive, you cannot control the actions of other drivers around you. Today, we want to talk about a tragic crash that happened in our area recently.

At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, our dedicated and qualified team is ready to get to work on your behalf. We know that you need compensation for all of your crash-related expenses, so call us when you need a car accident attorney.

What Happened In This Case?

We have learned that a woman driving a Mercedes was killed on May 18 when a man ran a red light and slammed into her vehicle in the morning hours. The man who ran the red light was also killed in the crash.

The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department was called to the intersection of Luna Road and Highway 395 where they discovered a Honda Civic and a Mercedes Benz involved in the incident. They discovered that the driver of the Honda had rear-ended another car and was fleeing from that incident when he ran the red light causing the fatality.

Another passenger in the Mercedes was severely injured and was airlifted to a nearby trauma center.

California Statistics

For the latest reporting year in the state, there were more than 278,000 vehicle crash injuries and over 3,600 vehicle crash fatalities. While most vehicle crash injuries are minor, please understand that even minor injuries can lead to medical expenses that damage a person’s finances. In many cases, we see the following injuries in the aftermath of a vehicle crash:

  • Spinal cord injuries (with possible paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

Victims who sustain these injuries often face long roads to recovery. If they are unable to work while they recover, this can lead to lost income on top of the medical bills that are piling in.

All too often, victims of other drivers’ negligence face difficulties when trying to recover compensation from insurance companies. If a person is injured due to the actions of a reckless, impaired, speeding, or distracted driver, they should not be on the line for the costs.

What Happens Now?

If you or someone you love has been injured in a vehicle crash that was caused by the careless or negligent actions of another person, seek legal assistance as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, we will get to work immediately so we can secure the compensation you need. This can include coverage for:

  • Your medical expenses related to the incident
  • Lost income and benefits if you are unable to work
  • Pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life damages
  • Punitive damages against those responsible
