Car accidents: Police investigate serious collision

It is necessary for many people in California to utilize state roads as they go about their day-to-day lives. While most motorists go to great lengths to drive safely, car accidents often still occur due to the unavoidable actions of others. Unfortunately, two drivers were recently airlifted to the hospital after they were involved in a serious collision.

Many of the details regarding the collision are unclear. However, it occurred just after 3 p.m. on a day in early November. According to reports, one of the vehicles involved was struck by a second. The driver of the first reportedly suffered "major trauma" and was transported to the hospital by helicopter.

The incident happened on a day in late October. According to reports, an 81-year-old woman was traveling north on a California interstate. Unfortunately, the California Highway Patrol claims that a 57-year-old woman was traveling the wrong way in the northbound lanes, causing a head-on collision.

Failure to do so could result in slip-and-fall accidents. After a woman in another state reportedly fell in the parking lot of a convenience store, she decided to take action against the store.

The incident that led to the woman's fall happened in June 2014. According to her, she slipped on parts of a sandwich that had been discarded in a parking lot. She filed a lawsuit against the store in 2016.

Unfortunately, police say that a recent crash further illustrates the dangers of such behavior. Although an arrest has been made, a wrongful death lawsuit could also follow.
