Road rage in San Diego leads to car accident, injuries

Obscene gestures, getting cut off in traffic or having difficulties merging into another lane on the freeway are all instances that can leave a driver frustrated and angry. However, as angry as you may get it is best to avoid engaging in road rage on California roadways. 

What should you do after a hit-and-run in California?

California crash calls attention to elderly drivers

Last month, nine children and two adults were injured when a 100-year-old man backed his car onto a sidewalk outside of a California elementary school. Although no one suffered life-threatening injuries in the car accident, it has caused a reignition of the ongoing national debate on elderly drivers.

Two teens involved in Ramona accident, one seriously injured

A car accident can happen in the blink of an eye. Just ask the parents of a 17-year-old California boy whose vehicle struck a boulder and flipped last Sunday night. One moment, the boy was simply riding along Vista Vince Drive in Ramona, but soon after he was in critical condition at a local hospital. So far no further information is available regarding his condition, but reports show that the victim suffered an injury to his head.

Make a decision to drive: banning all distractions behind the wheel

A recent New York Times article shared the story of a 19-year-old Santa Maria, California, student who was hit by a distracted driver while riding his bicycle. The young victim died in the accident, forever changing the lives of both his loved ones and the teenage driver who caused the crash while texting.
