California AA Accident Attorneys

One person was killed and three others suffered moderate to serious injuries in a head on collision early Saturday morning in Santa Ana.

According to the Santa Ana Police Department, the accident took place just before 2 a.m. on McFadden Avenue at the intersection of Mohawk Drive, where a silver 1989 Nissan sedan speeding down the wrong side of the road crashed directly into a black Chevrolet Silverado 2500 pickup truck that was stopped at a red light.

The crash inflicted major damages to the much smaller Nissan sedan, destroying most of the front end, which became partially lodged underneath the taller pickup truck. The driver of the Nissan, 30 year old Andres Lopez, was pronounced dead at the scene and two passengers were rushed to Western Medical Center and UCI Medical Center, where they are listed in moderate and extremely critical conditions respectively. The driver of the pickup truck, a 48 year old woman who was the only occupant inside the vehicle, suffered moderate injuries and was sent to UCI Medical Center as well.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation, though police investigators reported that open alcohol containers were found at the scene, and that it appeared as though none of the occupants of the Nissan were wearing seat belts.

In the event of an accident, your seat belts are the first line of defense against the forces of impact, preventing you from being knocked around the cabin of your vehicle and keeping you in place to ensure that airbags provide proper cushioning. Without a seat belt, even minor collisions can become serious, and high speed crashes can become fatal.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident involving a driver under the influence, you should seek help, as there are legal protections in place designed to help you recover. With the help of an experienced car accident attorney, compensation can be received from those at fault to help pay for things like doctor visits, surgeries, physical therapy, and more. You can also recover wages lost from time spent away from work, or from a loss of future earning potential should your injuries prevent you from returning to work.
