Downey, CA (July 01, 2022) – At about 2:25 a.m., Downey Police Officers and the Downey Fire Department both responded to a three-vehicle crash with three people trapped at the intersection of Lakewood Boulevard and Florence Avenue.
Fire crews and police officers reported to the scene to find that one vehicle had two people trapped inside and another vehicle had one victim trapped.
The victims were reported to be responsive with non-life-threatening injuries.
Rescuers used the Jaws of Life to extricate the three patients who were then taken by paramedics to area hospitals in unknown conditions.

Car Accidents in California
Negligent driving is a serious concern throughout the United States. On average, more than 13,000 Americans lose their lives due to distracted driving every year. Throughout the nation, approximately 31% of all traffic fatalities are caused by distracted driving. Smartphones and other handheld technology have greatly increased the number of distracted drivers on the roadways.
Even if you’re the most careful driver out there, you could still be hurt in a car wreck caused by a negligent driver. If you or someone you love has recently been hurt in a car wreck caused by driver negligence, you may be able to collect compensation. Most of the costs associated with your accident should be covered by financial compensation. The law says that anyone who is hurt by another person’s negligent actions should be compensated for their damages. Things like lost wages from being stuck in the hospital, medical care, and vehicle repairs may all be covered by financial compensation if you’ve been injured by another driver’s reckless, careless, or negligent actions.
California car crash statistics continue to become more alarming as time goes on. The state of California sees more car accidents than any other state in the nation. More than 400,000 auto collisions occur in the Golden State every year. The majority of these accidents are caused by reckless, careless, or otherwise negligent drivers. Each year, thousands of people are killed in these accidents. Approximately 3,200 people lose their lives in car wrecks in California every year.
The average cost of sustaining serious injuries in a car crash is more than $50,000 in the United States. The average emergency room visit costs more than $3,000, while the cost of an ambulance ride sits at around $900. It is hard to accept that getting hurt, especially by another person, can cost so much money.
Financial compensation can allow you to focus on your mental and physical recovery rather than worry about how you’re going to pay for everything. When you’re hurt by another person’s careless actions, you should not have to pay to recover. Negligent parties should always be held accountable for their actions that led to injuries for another person.
However, by hiring a personal injury lawyer, you may be able to negate these costs. A car crash lawyer in Pasadena may be able to award you financial compensation for your injuries and losses. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, a personal injury attorney may be able to help you recover in more ways than one.
