West Los Angeles Crash Leaves 8 People Injured

West Los Angeles Crash Leaves 8 People Injured

A two-car collision left eight people injured earlier this month in the Sawtelle area of West Los Angeles. Four of the eight people sustained critical injuries, including two pedestrians that were caught up in the accident. The crash occurred in the early afternoon of September 6, 2015 when a SUV exited the freeway and ran through an intersection.

The vehicle collided with another SUV, causing one of the vehicles to spin out and hit the two pedestrians. The pedestrians sustained critical injuries and were transported to a nearby hospital. Six others, including a 6-year-old and an 8-year-old girl, also sustained injuries.

The driver who caused the accident attempted to flee the scene, asking a nearby homeowner to hide him and requesting that the homeowner allow him to pretend he lived there. Soon after, he was arrested by authorities. It was suspected that the man may have been driving under the influence at the time of the accident.

What Do I Do if a Car Crashes Into Me?

Car accidents can happen at any time and in any place. If you are involved in a car accident, it is important that you remain calm. Check to see if anyone is injured, and call for help as soon as possible. A police officer can create an official accident report detailing the circumstances of the accident, which can help your case if you choose to file a lawsuit. Exchange insurance information with the other driver and take note of as much evidence about the accident as you can, being careful not to apologize for the accident or say anything that could be construed as an admission of guilt. Take photos and videos of the damage and, if available, gather the names and contact information of any eyewitnesses. Then, contact a Los Angeles car accident lawyer at Biren Law Group as soon as possible.
