Long Beach multiple car crash

A simple car collision could result to death, injuries and property destruction. Now, imagine what could result from a multiple car collision?

Of course, injuries are more severe and impact is more destructive. Survival is slim. To those who have left the scene unharmed or with little injuries, luck may have been on their side.

In a multiple car collision that happened in Long Beach, five people sustained minor to moderate injuries while one was critically injured.

According to spokesman Jackawa Jackson, five vehicles were involved in the collision on the freeway of Paramount Boulevard. Firefighters were called on the scene to put out the fire which engulfed one of the vehicles. The driver of the blazed vehicle got out of time. A dozen of firefighters also extricated another passenger from one of the wrecked vehicles.

The California Highway Patrol was still investigating the cause of the accident.

In this incident, someone has been remised in its duty to observe utmost care in driving. For those who had been merely dragged into the accident, they can sue the one who proximately caused the accident. Employing a personal injury lawyer would help them file their claims quickly.
