An SUV driver escaped serious injury during a rollover accident in the Long Beach area after a collision with a car. The incident occurred on the corner of Ocean Blvd and Magnolia Avenue and involved an 18-year-old driver, who was behind the wheel of the blue Saturn SUV. The female motorist explained that she was turning left onto Magnolia when she was broadsided by a red Mitsubishi that was heading east on Ocean.
The compact SUV flipped on impact, hitting the curb on the Southside of Magnolia. Although damage to the Mitsubishi was minor, the SUV was completely wrecked. As of press time, the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
When an SUV rollover accident occurs it can be devastating to all involved, but for anyone who is seriously injured, it can have the greatest impact of all. Even when someone appears to be fine after a collision, they may find that have incurred brain or spinal damage as time wears on. In some cases, the condition can be degenerative. If this has happened to you or someone you love, seek legal aid and investigate pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. Whether it was the fault of the car’s manufacturer or a negligent driver, motorists who are hurt in a collision will need financial compensation to take care of associated medical costs.
