Cable Car-Van Collision Injures Four

Cable Car-Van Collision Injures Four

The Mercury News recently reported in a story that four people were injured in San Francisco when a cable car collided with a city van. The accident occurred on Washington Street as the cable car was traveling towards Downtown. A total of four commuters, all of whom were in the cable car, were injured during the collision. Two of the four were treated at the scene, and two others were taken to nearby hospitals where they received treatment. No injuries sustained were life-threatening or serious, and no one in the van was injured.

In all vehicular accidents, it is critical to determine what exactly caused the crash. Though it was not reported as to what caused this particular collision, thankfully, no one was severely hurt. However, in many accidents, serious injury is often sustained by at least one party. Furthermore, it is important to establish the cause of an accident in order to hold negligent parties accountable for injuries sustained, property damaged, and any other negative impact the accident has on either those involved or the surrounding area. Besides driver negligence, auto accidents can be caused by dangerous road conditions, faulty automobile products, and even inclement weather. In any event, it is important to have someone on your side that will help decipher the true cause of your accident and help you obtain compensatory damages to help with recovery.
