San Jose Car Accident Claims on the Rise?
Earlier this month, following a horrific car crash in San Jose, a Milpitas man, who was initially rushed to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, was pronounced dead by authorities. The individual, who shall remain nameless out of respect for the family, was driving eastbound along the Capitol Expressway, near Senter Road, when the driver lost control of the vehicle and slammed headfirst into a tree. Police note the car was traveling “at a high rate of speed.”
An accident such as this could easily claim multiple people’s lives in the blink of an eye.
Did you know that, in 2019, California reported a total of 3,540 vehicle-related deaths, which is a slight bump from 2018? Most involved passenger vehicles, like SUVs and sedans, while trucks and motorcycles accounted for a significantly smaller portion of motor accident-related fatalities. One of the biggest causes of such incidents is driving while under the influence of alcohol, but we’re not saying that was this case in San Jose this month.
