The impact of the crash sent the Hyundai into a nearby building. Police affirmed that the drivers of both vehicles and a passenger in the Hyundai were taken to Valley Medical Center with unspecified injuries.
Los Angeles Daily News wrote that at least two of the patients were listed in critical condition. The report also indicated that extrication was required to free two people, and three cars were actually involved in the wreck. Authorities have not yet confirmed the information.

If the investigation determines and justifies the involvement of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and speeding in this collision, the victims will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. DUI is a serious crime that has corresponding criminal penalties, and the kinds of the charges to be filed depend on factors including the prior convictions, if there are any, of the alleged DUI driver, the severity of the offense, the level of intoxication and the injuries caused to another individual.
