Five people were injured in an Anaheim car accident after two vehicles were involved in a head-on crash. The Orange County Register reports that the collision occurred the night of March 22, 2010 on Santa Ana Canyon Road, near Mohler Drive. A 2001 Toyota Sequoia going west crossed over to the eastbound lanes and hit a 2005 Toyota Highlander. The Highlander’s driver sustained the most serious injuries. That victim and the driver of the Sequoia were transported to area hospitals for treatment of their injuries. Three children also sustained minor injuries in the crash.
I hope and pray that the Highlander’s driver did not suffer any life-threatening injuries in this head-on collision. It is indeed fortunate that the other occupants of both vehicles were not seriously injured. I wish everyone involved the very best for a quick and complete recovery.
There were 21 fatalities and 2,018 injuries involving car accidents in Anaheim, according to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS). Countywide, 152 fatalities and 13,414 injuries were reported as a result of car accidents in 2008.
Causes and Liability Issues
In this particular case, it seems that the driver of the Sequoia may have been at fault by crossing into opposing traffic lanes. I trust investigators are looking into what caused the driver to drift to opposing lanes. Was this accident the result of an auto product defect? Was the driver intoxicated, distracted, speeding or driving recklessly? Was there a dangerous condition on the roadway, which caused or contributed to this accident?
