Gardena, CA (August 30, 2020) – According to authorities, a woman was killed in a two-vehicle collision with an intoxicated driver on Saturday morning, August 29th. The accident was reported at the intersection of West Redondo Beach Boulevard and South Vermont Avenue in Gardena.

Police officials say that at around 11:50 a.m. the operator of a stolen Dodge pickup truck, identified as 19-year-old Isaiah Lono, of Hawthorne, was driving while intoxicated when he crashed into a Nissan Sentra at or near the intersection.

Fatal Car Accidents in Los Angeles

Authorities found that in 2014, a total of no less than 46,500 car crashes took place within the Los Angeles area, alone. During the following year, that figure rose to about 52,000 before increasing again in 2016 with at least 55,350 car crashes on record. Car accidents in Los Angeles and all areas throughout Southern California are frequently devastating as seriously reckless operators continue to trigger major collisions for many reasons. Among the most common causes of such accidents in Los Angeles include actions such as DUI, speeding, and distracted driving.

Fully realizing your rights as a victim or a bereaved loved one can be of paramount importance as you begin moving forward. First and foremost, however, those who have suffered unjustly at the hands of a negligent driver or other entity must understand the need for aggressive representation to fight on their behalf as soon as possible. In the event of a crash that has claimed the life of a loved one, family members are encouraged to hold the liable party accountable for wrongful death.

After suffering an injury or the loss of a family member, victims are left with enormous costs due to hospitalizations and often continued care, including years of therapy in many cases. There is nothing more important than obtaining astute representation that understands the sensitive nature of such a time. The victim of someone else’s actions should never be held responsible for the cost of their treatment, and an experienced car accident attorney will help you recover the compensation you deserve.
