Rich & Famous Accidents in CA

Celebrities are no more immune to auto and other motor vehicle accidents than any other citizen on the road today. Over the years CA has witnessed numerous motor vehicle accidents involving the rich and famous, ranging from minor to serious and sometimes tragic.

CA Traffic Accident

In 2000, then 78 year old TV personality and actor Steve Allen was driving in Encino, CA, when his car was hit from behind by another driver backing out of his driveway.  No injuries were apparent at the time, so each driver exchanged contact and insurance information and went on their way.  While sleeping hours later, Allen had a massive heart attack and died in his sleep.  Autopsy results revealed that the earlier auto accident made a blood vessel rupture in his chest.  He also had four broken ribs.

If you are in an auto accident in CA, seek medical advice right away so a tragedy like this one does not happen to you.

CA Train Collision

Back in September of 2008, an LA Metrolink train crashed into another train near Chatsworth, CA.  Twenty-six passengers died at the time, while 138 passengers were reported injured.  An investigation conducted by the National Transportation Safety Board, investigated the crash.  At the time, it was noted that the engineer of the Metrolink train may have been using his cell phone to text message right before the collision.  In July of 2008, then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law the handheld wireless telephone law, which prohibited using a cell phone when driving.  However, not until January 2009 did the state add wireless communication devices, specifically texting. 

If you are involved in a car accident in CA, call an Orange County automobile accident attorney before speaking with an insurance company.  Of course, medical treatment should always come first.

Motor vehicle accidents are unfortunate facts of life that can occur to anyone at any time.
