4 killed, 2 injured in fiery crash

On Dec. 26, four people were killed and two others were seriously injured in a fiery crash in California. The two-car accident happened in Fair Oaks at around 1:30 a.m. when a driver drifted over the centerline. So far, investigators have not confirmed whether impairment played a factor in the wreck.

Before the car crash, a 26-year-old man had been traveling northbound on San Juan Avenue in a 2003 Subaru Outback. His vehicle was struck head-on when a southbound 1992 Buick LeSabre crossed the double yellow line and entered his lane. The driver of the Subaru suffered serious injuries, and tests later confirmed that he had not been intoxicated.

As a result of the collision, the Buick became completely engulfed in flames, and three of the occupants died inside of the vehicle. A bystander was able to pull two women out of the Buick, but one of the women died at the scene. The other woman who was pulled to safety was transported to the hospital in critical condition. Investigators say that speed may have been a factor in the crash, but the scene was difficult to investigate because of the amount of wreckage.

An investigation into a fatal car accident like this one can sometimes take weeks or even months to complete. During this time, an injured victim who was involved in the accident might want to begin speaking with an attorney. When the driver at fault is identified, an attorney might be able to help an injured victim file a civil claim for reimbursement of financial losses. A claim could be filed against the at-fault party's estate if he or she is deceased.
