A head on crash has the potential for devastating consequences and significant injuries if emergency dispatchers are not able to arrive on the scene immediately. That is because the way that cars typically fold up in a head on crash and passenger and driver inability to absorb the shock appropriately.
One recent Escondido head on crash led to fatal injuries for the driver of one vehicle and injured occupants in two other vehicles as well. The head on collision left one Alpine woman dead, when it occurred just after 12:45 pm near Champagne Boulevard and Deer Springs Road. The woman was driving her town car north on Champagne Boulevard at the time of the accident.
According to witnesses in the area, she crossed the broken yellow line while travelling at excessive speed, and hit a Toyota Corolla coming in the opposite direction. Head on crashes due to broken yellow lines can be unfortunate because people are allowed to pass on the broken yellow lines when it is legal or safe to do so.
However, when they do not verify that the roadway is safe and clear of oncoming vehicles, a head on crash may be unavoidable. If you or someone you know has already been hurt in a serious head on crash in San Diego, you deserve to have your rights represented by an experienced attorney.
