A 57-year-old woman was killed and two others were seriously injured as the result of a San Leandro Car Accident that happened over the weekend. Reports indicate the crash occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 21, along Washington Boulevard in Alameda County, California.
An article from the San Leandro Patch explained that an officer had reported a vehicle traveling at more than 100 mph in the southbound lanes of Washington. Before the vehicle could be stopped though, the driver had veered into the oncoming lanes of traffic and collided head-on with another vehicle.
The female passenger of the vehicle that was struck died at the scene. Luckily though, officers were able to pull the drivers of both vehicles to safety before the vehicle was engulfed in flames. The men were then transported to a local hospital for further treatment. They were last listed in serious condition.
The incident underscores the dangers that speeding can present. Experts say the behavior is involved in roughly one-third of all fatal accidents that occur in the United States today.
The California Personal Injury Lawyers with Berg Injury Lawyers recognize the risks speeding in a vehicle presents to not only the driver engaged in the behavior, but to all others who are sharing the road with them. That is why the firm asks that each motorist do their part to keep California’s highways and roads safe by always obeying the posted speed limit of the road you are traveling on.
