Corona, CA – Wrong Way Collision Injures Elderly Driver

Corona, CA (November 17, 2018) – Sixth Street between Sherman Avenue and Smith Avenue was shut down for several hours on Friday evening due to a serious head-on collision between two vehicles.

According to witnesses, a Nissan traveling east on Sixth Street, driven by a 45-year-old Corona man, suddenly crossed the center line and was headed the wrong way through westbound traffic. The driver of the Nissan then struck a Kia SUV causing the driver, an 83-year-old man from San Bernardino, was ejected through the windshield of the SUV as a result of the collision. Both drivers received immediate medical transport to Riverside Community Hospital where they received treatment for the major injuries they had each sustained.

The names and updated condition of either gentleman have not yet been released. Local authorities are still looking into the cause of the accident.

Head-On Collisions in California

We would like to extend our sympathies to the two gentlemen who were injured in this devastating accident and wish them both a speedy recovery.

Head-on collisions are some of the most devastating of car accidents and they can be caused by a wide variety of factors. Things such as distracted driving, drunk driving, a medical emergency that occurred while driving, or loss of control of the vehicle for mechanical reasons are some of the top causes of this catastrophic type of collision. If you ever see a car or truck coming straight at you on the road you need to do anything you can to avoid that accident, even if it means driving off the road. Your odds of catastrophic and fatal injury are greatly reduced whenever you avoid running headfirst into another vehicle.

If you or someone that you love has been injured in a head-on collision that another driver was responsible for then you are most likely entitled to collect damages for the injuries and suffering that you have endured.We at the Los Angeles Injury Group know that no amount of courtroom victory will put your life back together exactly the way it was before your injuries. We can, however, make sure that you don’t also get sucked into a financial black hole that causes you and your family further distress.
