A man turning left onto an onramp to the northbound Interstate 15 in Victorville the other morning was struck by a woman who did not stop for a red light. The impact caused the man's vehicle to split in two. Both drivers were taken to nearby hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
Victorville Police are investigating the accident, but it appears that the woman who ran the red light is at fault. According to California Vehicle Code Section 21453(a), "A driver facing a circular red signal shall stop at the limit line before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then before entering the intersection, and shall remain stopped until an indication to proceed is shown."
If you are injured by a driver who did not stop for a red light, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate to determine if you are entitled to compensation by the negligent party for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
