Although the details surrounding every car wreck are different, they can share some similarities. Whether the accidents were caused by a drunk or negligent driver or resulted in fatalities, these crashes continue to occur in San Francisco and across the state. However, the pain and suffering that victims and their families experience after an auto accident can extend beyond physical injury and also include legal, financial and emotional problems, which highlights the importance of safe and cautious driving.
After two vehicles collided on Highway 280, a 21-year-old man from San Carlos lost his life. The crash took place around 4 a.m. close to Los Altos Hills. The man who died in this wreck was driving a car that had three other passengers, all of whom were able to survive without suffering any serious injuries.
The driver of the other vehicle, a 46-year-old man, was also injured in the crash. Although authorities do not believe that alcohol was involved in the incident, they are waiting for a coroner’s report. As a result of the accident, one vehicle came to a rest upside down, while the other was broken in half.
If you have been involved in a car accident, you might be thankful that you survived the collision. However, if you are having difficulty paying for medical expenses or working due to a serious injury, it’s important to do everything you can to try and recover physically, mentally and financially. Sometimes, recovery can be complicated, which is why you may want to think about consulting a legal professional.
