A horrific accident occurred at the intersection of Foothill Blvd. and Citrus Avenue in Fontana, California. This massive collision resulted in at least three deaths and several others suffering very serious injuries. About twenty minutes before 9:00 p.m., on October 21, 2013, it is believed a vehicle drove through a red light striking another car in that intersection, with ultimately three cars involved in the accident. The negligent driver, cost a child, a woman and a man their lives.
Fontana police officers are investigating the cause of the accident. Some of the important aides in determining the cause of this accident will be information from the occupants of the cars in the accident, independent witnesses, skid marks, if available, and the damage to the vehicles. If one driver admits he or she ran the red light, then the investigation is made much easier.
Sometimes, victims of these type of major accidents, while grieving and struggling emotionally and physically, are bombarded by unethical lawyers and their “runners” and “cappers” trying to get these victims to sign up their cases. This conduct is unethical and illegal. Beware and don’t get trapped by these ambulance chasers. Only use lawyers that comply with the law and are looking out solely for your best interest for your personal injury and auto accident claims.
