The crash took place about 10 a.m. between the Honda Civic the women were riding in and a Toyota 4Runner SUV. The female driver in the Honda was able to crawl out of the crumpled vehicle, but the female passenger was trapped. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free the woman from the vehicle.
Paramedics also evaluated the driver in the Toyota, but they were only treated at the scene and not transported to a hospital.
Determining Liability for a Collision
Based on the facts we have for this collision, there are at least two parties involved and police could determine that either one or both were liable. There could also be some liability on the part of a government entity. There are many factors that are involved. Who had the right-of-way? What were the road conditions? Which driver had the right-of-way at the intersection? Were the traffic signals functioning? Was either of the drivers impaired, distracted, speeding, etc.? These are all things that police will consider when they determine liability for a collision.
