A baby girl was trapped in a fiery car in a rear-end collision Friday evening that claimed her life.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the Nissan Altima the girl was riding in had a flat tire. Her mother stopped the car in a curved part of California Route 110. The car was hit by a sport-utility vehicle. The impact set the car ablaze near York Boulevard. The exact location of this accident has not been released.
The girl was in her car seat in the car. She was strapped in securely when the collision occurred. Her mother attempted to get to the girl. But the smoke and fire kept her back. She screamed for help and nearby residents came running, including 36-year-old Salvador Martinez. Mr. Martinez did everything he could to get the girl free, while his face and arms became burned. Other residents of the area brought buckets water, a fire extinguisher and garden hoses to put out the fire.
The flames engulfed the car before the mother and neighbors could free the girl. She was killed in the fire. The girl’s mother and the driver of the sport-utility vehicle were taken to the hospital with injuries.
Seeing a copy of the California accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about California Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An California accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
