LOS ANGELES (November 16, 2017)- According to KTLA 5 News, a deadly collision involving a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department SUV Thursday evening at the intersection of Whittier Boulevard and Indiana Street.

 Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Potentially at-fault for Crash

Per the article, two Los Angeles sheriffs were en route to an emergency phone call regarding a gunshot victim in the Boyle Heights area of Los Angeles. As the deputies approached the intersection of Indiana and Whittier a collision transpired with a second vehicle.

Both the sheriffs SUV and the other vehicle which looked like a sedan careened into a group of five pedestrians walking either on the sidewalk or in a crosswalk.

The victims struck included two boys, ages 7 and 9, their mother, and two other unidentified adults.

The two boys who have not been ID’d tragically were pronounced at the scene as authorities believe they both likely died upon impact.

Their mother who also has not been ID’d incurred major injuries and was rushed to a trauma center where she currently remains in serious condition in the ICU.

Per the article, the two other adult victims sustained moderate injuries and were hospitalized. Their condition has not been updated at this time.

According to key witness, Chris Alvidrez, the SUV patrol vehicle enter the intersection without its light and sirens on which Alvidrez believes triggered the crash as the sheriffs vehicle may have ran through a red light.

Police officials are currently investigating the fatal incident and are in the process of gathering surveillance footage from all local area businesses.

Based on this news report, it appears as though there are still many unanswered questions here. Were any of the involved motorists under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Did the “on-duty” patrol officer vehicle have its lights flashing and sirens on or off? Did one of the drivers run and red light? Where were the pedestrians as they crossed the intersection? Were they in a marked crosswalk or designated crossing area? Were they outside of a crossing area? Were they walking along the sidewalk when the patrol vehicle careened into them? Were any of the drivers negligent in any other way?

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
