Fatal car accidents are always devastating to the victim’s family and loved ones. These senseless accidents can be all the more devastating when caused by another driver’s outright recklessness or negligence, especially when that driver has a history of careless driving and crashes.
According to a recent article, more information has been revealed about a woman charged with causing a Los Angeles car accident that killed six people and injured seven more, including children and an unborn child. According to court documents, the woman approached a red light and accelerated her car to 90 miles per hour and drove through the busy intersection, striking two cars who had been going through the green light and causing a chain of other, more minor accidents. Both cars hit by the van immediately burst into flames, according to witnesses, and one allegedly split in half. Reports say the woman showed no sign of drug or alcohol use.
According to court documents, the woman accused has an extensive history of numerous car collisions across multiple jurisdictions and states. One crash was as recent as 2020, which resulted in two wrecked cars and bodily injuries. After this latest deadly crash, the woman, who also suffered broken bones in the collision, could be facing up to life in prison.
