LAPD Car Involved in a Sun Valley Car Accident

Just recently, a Los Angeles Police Department’s car was involved in a car accident with a motorcycle at Sun Valley, Los Angeles, California.

The LAPD vehicle was driven by a Los Angeles Police officer when the mishap involving a motorcycle occurred at around 2:07, February 19, in the afternoon at Stonehurst Avenue and Sunland, according to LAPD Officer, Karen Rayner.

Rayner confirmed that it was a car and a motorcycle collision. The motorcycle involved was one of the hundreds of motorcycle passing around the area.

The officer involved immediately requested a back-up due to the considerable volume of motorcycles within the area.

Rayner added that it was not yet clear if anyone sustained personal injury from the crash. However, a team of Los Angeles Fire Paramedic was still sent to the scene to address possible injuries.

Officers had cleared the road blocks at around 2:30 pm.

Surely, it was not really a huge impact accident; because if it was, it would have created a multiple-vehicle accident or left several people injured since hundreds of vehicles were passing by the accident scene during that time.

Ironically, in such mishaps, police officers were always the ones to rescue immediately; but, in this incident, nobody was instantly available since the police vehicle supposed to perform rescue operations was the one involved in the accident.

Generally, vehicular accidents happen as a result of negligence or recklessness on the part of drivers. The driver’s failure to observe traffic rules and regulations, or to implement reasonable care in driving, brings the risk of road disasters higher.

In such cases, only competent Los Angeles car accident lawyers can ensure victims that they will get the legal services and advice that they need regarding their case. Additionally, these lawyers have the expertise needed to manage insurance and personal injury claims and provide favorable results to their clients.
