Two people were injured Saturday when their vehicles collided in Huntington Beach.
The accident happened at about 11:15 a.m. at the intersection of McFadden Ave. and Golden West Ave. A 57-year-old male was driving a 1965 Chevrolet 10 pickup truck, turning left from McFadden onto Golden West. A 66-year-old Huntington Beach female was driving a 2012 Ford Focus southbound on Golden West. The vehicles collided.
After crashing into the Ford, the pickup truck slammed into a utility pole and the male driver was ejected from the vehicle. The driver was transported to UCI Medical Center and reported to be in serious condition.
The cause of the accident is still being investigated.
When Do You Need A Lawyer After a Car Accident?
If you were at fault for a car accident and you have auto insurance, your insurance company will likely handle any claim against you. On the other hand, if the other driver was at fault, and if you suffered anything more than minor injuries, you should seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer. Most personal injury attorneys provide free consultations. If you decide to hire one, they don’t charge you upfront. Personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that they are paid at the end of the case out of the money they collect for you.
