IRVINE, California – Traffic began backing up about 7 a.m. Wednesday morning after a single car flipped over and landed right side up in the grassy area beside the MacArthur Boulevard off ramp on the Interstate 405 freeway.

Four Vehicles Involved in Fatal Car Crash in Long Beach, Car Accident Attorney Reports

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Posted by Car Accident Attorney

LONG BEACH, California – Police believe the 23-year-old driver who was killed Monday afternoon in a multiple-vehicle car accident was speeding and lost control of his vehicle prior to hitting three others drivers on Willow Street.

Emergency crews used the Jaws of Life to free the Lakewood man from his black 2005 Dodge Neon, but they were unable to save his life. Police also indicated that the driver was not wearing a seat belt.

The car crash took place after the vehicle struck a traffic median which propelled it into the air before landing on the three other vehicles including a Ford Ranger, a Chevy El Camino and a Chevy Tahoe. Two men — the 54-year-old driver of the Ford and a 64-year-old driver of the Chevy El Camino – suffered minor injuries in the car accident and were transported to local hospitals for medical treatment. The driver of the Chevy Tahoe was unharmed in the car accident.

“Speeding is one of the leading causes of fatal car accidents,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm.

Negligent drivers are often responsible for their own injuries as well as those of other passengers and drivers on the road.

Fatal Motorcycle Accident in Desert Hot Springs

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

DESERT HOT SPRINGS, California – A 46-year-old motorcyclist was killed late Sunday afternoon when his Harley Davidson swerved off the road and he was thrown off, California Highway Patrol officials reported.

James Scott Rogers was riding his motorcycle on Thousand Palms Canyon Road at the time of the accident. Rogers was wearing a helmet at the time of the motorcycle accident, but he died of massive head injuries, said police. The helmet worn by Rogers was described as a novelty helmet that did not meet federal Department of Transportation standards.

“Many motorcyclists put looks before safety on the road by wearing novelty head gear known as “brain buckets” or ‘beanies,’ instead of federally approved safety crash helmets,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the West Seegmiller Law Firm. “These bucket-style helmets offer absolutely no protection for the skull. If the rider is in a crash there is no energy-absorbing foam to protect the skull as required in normal helmets.”

According to California Department of Motor Vehicle statistics, sadly most fatal collisions involving motorcycles are the fault of the driver. In fact, in California, roughly 67% of the 406 motorcyclists who died in 2010 were deemed to be at fault in the fatal collision. Additionally, roughly a third of all those fatal motorcycle crashes were single vehicle crashes such as this one.
