5 Critically Injured in 2-Vehicle Crash
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (March 20, 2018) — Five people were critically injured early Tuesday morning in a collision between two motorists at Gough and Pine streets, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The crash took place just before 6 a.m. this morning in a residential neighborhood. San Francisco Fire Department crews responded to the scene and used the Jaws of Life to cut the victims out of the wreckage of the mangled vehicles. At least two of the adults who were injured were transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment of major injuries. The report does not indicate where the other three adult victims were taken.
The crash remains under investigation to determine liability.
Car Accident Investigation
A full investigation into what led to this collision is underway as police seek to establish liability. Some questions they will seek to answer include whether or not any of the drivers were speeding, making an unsafe turn or distracted behind the wheel. A negligent motorist may be charged in criminal court if a person is hurt due to their actions.
Those who were injured in a collision such as this one, may have grounds for a personal injury claim. This is always a personal decision, but for many the financial losses associated with a traffic accident can be significant.
It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim even when they know their insured is responsible. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed.
