Mother, 8 Children Injured in Crash on Interstate 8 Freeway

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Oct. 7, 2022) –  Rebecca Coy and her eight children were injured Monday afternoon in a car accident on the Interstate 8 Freeway, just west of Lake Murray Blvd. in San Diego.

The collision occurred about 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 3rd, according to San Diego ABC News 10.

A driver in a Mazda sedan reportedly struck a westbound van occupied by the Ramona mother and her children ages 7 months old to 16 years old. The van went up an embankment and overturned before rolling back down to the interstate. Her 10-year-old daughter Julianna was critically injured in the crash after being thrown from the van during the crash.

Nine Injured in Crash on I-8 Freeway

Paramedics transported her to a trauma center intensive care unit for treatment of a fractured skull, pelvis, clavicle and eye socket as well as a brain bleed, according to San Diego News 10.   The mother and other seven children suffered less serious injuries. Doctors treated them for a range of injuries including broken bones, cuts and bruises.

Authorities say that all of the occupants in the van were wearing a seatbelt or were secured in a car seat.

Investigators suspect other vehicles involved were possibly street racing prior to hitting the Mazda.  The driver from the Mazda told investigators they were hit by another motorist that fled the scene. Witnesses reported seeing two vehicles apparently street racing prior to the collision.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Meanwhile, the family has a GoFundMe campaign to help them with medical and other losses.

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
