A pair of recent auto accidents in the San Diego area proves that there is no such thing as typical when vehicles are involved.
Most auto accidents don’t end in an evacuation. But that’s what happened this past Sunday, August 18th, at around 8:30 pm. It was then that the tenants of an apartment building in Chula Vista had to be evacuated after a car struck their building. That was bad enough, but the evacuation was because the vehicle in question ran into a gas meter.
After the accident, the woman behind the wheel quickly ditched her vehicle and took off running. Police evacuated the residents of the 580 L Street complex until the fire department was able to arrive, turn off the gas and allow it to dissipate to safer levels.
The crash is still being investigated by police, but a description of the woman responsible is not yet available.
Another bizarre crash happened in Altadena just the day before. A man was driving near the 2700 block of Scripps place when he took an unintended detour and ended up in a neighbor’s backyard pool at around 11:45 am.
Fortunately, no one was in the pool at the time the man’s white sedan crashed through the backyard and entered it. The driver was also able to exit his vehicle and walk away unharmed.
According to authorities, the driver, whose name and age has gone unreported, told them that he was wearing flip-flops when the incident occurred and that one had become entangled with his vehicle’s pedals. This left him unable to control his vehicle.
Both of these cases show how strange accidents in the area can be when they involve vehicles. However, they also speak to the importance of having a reliable attorney you can call for help when you need it. Whether it’s because someone damaged your property or vice versa, representation is essential.
