Conner Littler ID’d as Driver Injured in Anza Car Accident on Highway 371 near Lake Riverside Drive
Anza, California (February 21, 2020) – Two drivers were seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash on Monday afternoon in Anza, according to authorities.
At about 4:30 p.m., February 17, the police responded to a crash involving two vehicles on SR-371, just east of Lake Riverside Drive.
The police said Conner Littler, 23, of La Quinta, was driving a 2007 Ford Explorer eastbound, while at the same time, a 2018 Honda Accord driven by a Camp Pendleton resident was westbound on SR-371.
Littler, for unknown reasons, made an unsafe turn and lost control of his Ford. As a result, the Ford crossed the double yellow lines and collided head-on with a westbound Honda.
The two drivers were trapped in their vehicles. Littler and the other driver were freed by the emergency crews who responded to the crash. The two drivers were airlifted to Inland Valley Medical Center and Desert Regional Medical Center for treatment of severe injuries.
The roadway was closed for about half an hour.
An investigation is underway.
“Car accident claims are rarely straightforward regardless of the involved circumstances”, says Mr. Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. He further said that “Liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim and it is crucial, therefore, to have an experienced attorney on your side”.
