California AA Accident Attorneys

One woman was killed and another injured after a car ran through a red light and crashed into the side of another in the middle of an intersection early Friday morning in El Cajon.

According to police reports and witnesses at the scene, the crash took place just before 6:30 a.m. in the intersection of East Washington and South Mollison avenues, where an Acura Integra traveling eastward ran through a stoplight and collided with a northbound Chevrolet Sonic subcompact, knocking it onto its side and killing the driver inside, 36 year old Michelle Hay, a resident of El Cajon.

The red light runner, a 43 year old woman also from El Cajon, suffered injuries as well, and paramedics rushed her to a nearby hospital for injuries not believed to be life threatening. She is expected to make a full recovery and be released.

An initial investigation into the accident suggests that neither speeding nor intoxication were factors. A more in depth look into the accident will help determine what may have caused the woman to disregard the stop light and move into the intersection. At the crash scene, it was also discovered that Hay was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.

“This person ran a red light and she didn’t have her seat belt on and she always wears her seatbelt,” said Michelle’s mother, Dreama Hay, who was overcome with grief upon hearing the news. Michelle’s aunt added that she was “a fun loving homebody; didn’t drink, full of life, she loved her nephew and she would love all this drama on the news right now because she was a drama queen.”

A motorist on the road behind Hay at the time of the accident, David Daoud, quickly got out of his vehicle in an attempt to offer help, but it was already too late. “All I can see is her face, it’s a horrible thing,” he said to reporters. “You wish you can help that woman and you can’t and that bothers me.”

If you or someone you know has been hurt in a crash involving a red light runner such as this, you should seek help, as there are legal protections in place to help accident victims get what they need to recover. Though the help of a San Diego car accident lawyer, compensation can be received from those at fault to help pay for costs incurred by the injuries sustained.
