Woman Seriously Injured in San Diego Car Crash on Pomerado Road
San Diego, California (January 27, 2020) - Five people were injured, one of them seriously, in an alleged DUI accident in the Scripps Ranch neighborhood of San Diego Sunday morning.
According to San Diego police, the crash occurred in the 10600 block of Pomerado Road at around 10:12 a.m. on Sunday, January 26.
The report said that a 26-year-old man was driving a compact Smart car east on Pomerado Road when, for unknown reasons, he swerved across the center divider and struck an oncoming Land Rover driven by a 68-year-old woman.
The impact caused the Land Rover to spin and ended up in the eastbound lanes. The Land Rover was hit on its side by an eastbound Honda HRV driven by a 27-year-old woman.
Police said the driver of the Land Rover sustained a fractured pelvis in the collision.
The other drivers and two minors riding in the Honda suffered minor injuries.
The driver of the Smart car was arrested on charges of DUI.
An investigation into the collision is ongoing.
According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary so as clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
