2 suffer life-threatening injuries in Interstate 8 collision

Wrong-way crashes tend to be significant because both vehicles hit each other at higher speeds. If they don't brake, the impact can have much more force than if this was a side-impact or rear-end collision.

In one head-on crash in La Mesa, two drivers suffered severe injuries after colliding on Interstate 8. The crash happened shortly after 911 dispatchers were informed that there was an SUV traveling west in the eastbound lanes of the highway.

It was just a few minutes after those calls came in that a two-vehicle crash was reported near the 70th Street exit, where a 28-year-old man driving an SUV collided with a BMW sedan head-on. The collision left both him and the 45-year-old driver of the BMW with life-threatening injuries.

What caused the crash? While investigators are still working on the case, the initially reported that they believe the driver of the SUV had been under the influence of drugs or alcohol while traveling the wrong way on the highway.

Crashes like this can quickly go from being serious to catastrophic. While it's fortunate that the drivers both survived, it does sound like they are going to have a long period of recovery. If you're involved in a serious crash like this, it's important for you to be able to seek fair compensation for what you've been through. Head injuries, severe trauma to your body and other wounds can leave a lasting impact, but with the right support, you'll be able to fight for fair compensation and get the financial support that you need moving forward.
