In the afternoon of July 28, 2010, a San Bernardino woman died in a single car accident when she was traveling west on the 210 Freeway in Rancho Cucamonga and her car struck the freeway center divider multiple times before slamming into a wall near a freeway on-ramp and flipping over. Unfortunately, the driver was ejected due to not wearing her seat belt as indicated by the CHP.
We are terribly sympathetic to the family for their loss and wish them the best in their time of sorrow. Without knowing the exact cause of this particular Rancho Cucamonga automobile accident, and without drawing any conclusions as to this particular situation, there are some lessons to be learned. First, if one is driving while tired or sleepy, it is as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Second, driving without wearing a seat belt, normally, increases the likelihood of more serious injuries or death. Following reasonable safety precautions decrease dangers to you and others sharing the roadway. Even when you make every effort to be safe, that does not guarantee your safety when other drivers are negligent or there are defects in vehicles, roadways or products.
Drive safely. If you have been involved in an automobile accident in California’s Inland Empire, seek immediate legal advice from an expert personal injury attorney from the Inland Empire Law Group in Rancho Cucamonga. The consultation is free.
