Southern California Car Accidents
Our thoughts and best wishes go out to the family of William Elliott following this fatal collision. Every day across California, many collisions occur involving pedestrians, bicyclists and motorized scooters such as the one in this crash. Unfortunately, these collisions usually end up being serious in nature due to their sheer force and the lack of protection provided by scooters, bicycles, and motorcycles.
When an injury crash occurs in Southern California, the first thing that must be determined is who caused the crash. Cause of the crash is typically determined by the investigating officer on the scene. The officer will look to see if any traffic laws were violated leading to the crash and whether a driver was otherwise distracted or negligent. In these cases, the officer will prepare a written report detailing their observations and findings. The report can later be used as evidence of negligence in a personal injury case.
