2 Critical, 3 Injured After Police Chase Ends in Crash

COVINA (August 12, 2017) – Five people were injured in an alleged DUI collision at Barranca and Cienega avenues Friday evening, according to CBS Los Angeles.

The accident happened at about 8:42 p.m. when a suspected drunken driver crashed into another vehicle at the intersection. The suspect was involved in a brief pursuit with the authorities prior to the collision.

Covina DUI Crash

As per the article, two people were listed in critical condition following the crash. In addition, one person reportedly suffered moderate injuries, and two others suffered minor injuries. All the injured were transported to hospitals by land ambulances.

Officials have not yet released the names of the patients.

At this time, it is still unclear how many patients were in the bystander’s vehicle, and if the DUI driver was in custody.


The California Vehicle Code 23153 VC states that it is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or any substance other than alcohol that could affect your nervous system, brain or muscles, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law. It is a violation for an intoxicated motorist to neglect any duty imposed by law in driving a vehicle which proximately causes bodily injury to another person.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, victims have the right to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. Victims are entitled to a compensation for damages including hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, property damage and other losses.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
