O.C. Driver Blames Tesla for Collision In a Six-Car Crash Due to Speeding [Orange County, CA]

Orange County CA (June 28, 2024)- O.C. Driver blames Tesla for collision: On June 25, 2024, around 4:00 p.m., police officers were dispatched to an injury traffic collision at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Orangethorpe Avenue. Six vehicles were involved in the crash, resulting in a rollover and leaving multiple victims trapped in their vehicles.

Preliminary investigations indicate that a 2023 Tesla Model Y was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Orangethorpe Avenue at a high speed.

The Tesla initially struck a vehicle pulling out of a business driveway at 6771 Beach Boulevard. It then continued through a red light at Beach Boulevard, colliding with three more vehicles in front of 7740 Orangethorpe Avenue, eventually rolling over and hitting another vehicle.

Three victims were transported to local hospitals with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The Buena Park Police Department‘s Serious Collision Investigation Detail (SCID) was called to the scene.

Orangethorpe Avenue remained closed for four hours for investigators to process the site. Traffic investigators are still working to determine the events leading up to the collision.

According to the Buena Park Police Department, the Tesla driver claims the car malfunctioned before the crash.

Victims of car accidents like this one may be entitled to various forms of compensation depending on the circumstances and the extent of their injuries.

In this case, victims could pursue compensation for medical expenses, including hospital bills, surgery costs, physical therapy, and any ongoing medical care needed due to the accident.

Additionally, victims might be eligible for compensation for lost wages if their injuries prevent them from working and compensation for future loss of earning capacity if their ability to work is permanently affected.

Pain and suffering is another form of compensation that could be awarded, covering the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident.

In cases where victims experience severe trauma, this can be a significant portion of the compensation. Furthermore, property damage compensation is applicable for repairing or replacing the vehicles involved in the collision.

Victims may also seek compensation for out-of-pocket expenses related to the accident, such as transportation to medical appointments or home care services if they are unable to care for themselves.

In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded if the at-fault driver’s behavior was particularly reckless or egregious, serving as a punishment and a deterrent for similar behavior in the future.
