Driver Plunges Down 360-Foot Poway Hill

A 57-year-old man only suffered minor injuries after his car plunged down a steep 360-foot embankment on June 6‚ 2011‚ around 8 a.m. in Poway. According to San Diego County Sheriff’s investigators‚ the driver lost control of the vehicle when he was making a turn onto Kirkham Way by Tech Center Drive.

A helicopter immediately airlifted the injured motorist to Palomar Hospital where he received treatment for his back and neck pain. An investigation will be conducted to determine the exact cause of the accident.

If it is found that the driver lost control due to a vehicle malfunction or bad condition of the roads‚ then the auto manufacturer or the government entity responsible for maintaining the road may be held liable for the injured victim’s medical expenses‚ loss of earnings‚ and pain and suffering.

The injured driver should immediately consult with a San Diego auto accident lawyer to learn about his rights and legal options.

Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that the motorist heals soon.
