Two people were injured in a three-vehicle crash today on the 57 freeway in Fullerton.
The accident happened just after 12:40 p.m. on the southbound 57 freeway at the Nutwood Ave. off-ramp. A Ford Mustang driver made an unsafe lane change and side-swiped a Honda Accord. The Mustang and Accord then veered towards the freeway's right shoulder, and struck a Chrysler PT Cruiser. The Cruiser then was forced off the freeway and hit a tree.
The driver of the PT Cruiser, a female, had to be cut from the wreckage by Fullerton Fire Department. The female, as well as the driver of the Accord, were transported to UCI Medical Center in Orange with moderate injuries.
If you have been injured in a car accident, you should speak with a personal injury attorney about your right to compensation from the at-fault driver. You are entitled to compensation for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If your vehicle is repairable, you may also be entitled to diminution in value, which is compensation for the reduced value of your vehicle because it now has an accident history. A Long Beach personal injury attorney at McGee, Lerer and Associates is available 24/7 to provide a free consultation.
