Chino Rear-End Auto Accident Injures Six
Several people were injured in a San Bernardino auto accident on March 30, 2009, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reports. Injured in this traffic collision were: 23-year-old David Deseran; Justin Longe, 41, Ryan Harris, 22; and Mike Hernandez, 26. Two children – a 9-year-old and a 12-year-old – also suffered injuries.
The accident occurred when Deseran, Harris and Hernandez were in a 2004 Toyota Tacoma heading west on Edison Avenue. As the Tacoma approached Oaks, Deseran, the driver, attempted to merge into a left-turn lane and was rear-ended by a black 2003 Lincoln Navigator driven by 32-year-old Robert Saucedo. The impact from the collision caused the Toyota to spin out of control, become airborne and land in the center lane of Edison. A 2008 Chevy Silverado driven by Longe also collided with the Toyota.
Both Deseran and Harris suffered head injuries and were taken to an area hospital in critical condition. Hernandez suffered a broken left leg. Longe had cuts on his head and left leg. A 9-year-old child suffered from stomach pain and a 12-year-old had a fractured elbow. Saucedo and a 10-year-old child were reportedly uninjured. The children were all occupants of the Chevy truck.
I wish all the victims who were injured in this horrific Southern California car crash the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. They will certainly be in my prayers.
According to the 2007 California Statewide Integrated Traffic Reporting System, there were seven auto accident fatalities and 439 injuries relating to auto accidents in Chino. In San Bernardino County as a whole, 308 deaths and 9,920 injuries were reported as a result of motor vehicle accidents.
In this particular auto accident, if the media and official reports are accurate, it seems to me that Robert Saucedo who rear ended David Deseran’s Toyota may be to blame. However, this article does not mention whether Deseran was trying to make an unsafe merge into the left-turn lane. I trust the investigators’ report will soon provide answers.
