It was a Tuesday morning when a van struck a 41-year old woman. She was driving a Ford Escape with six dogs. The van was speeding and hit the woman with five dogs at such a speed that the Ford Escape was thrown into three other cars. Once the police arrived on the scene, it was not looking good for all involved. The 41-year old woman was taken to the hospital where she died because of her injuries. Of the six dogs, only one survived with a significant injury. The van driver survived and was arrested and charged with evading a police officer, DUI, and vehicular manslaughter.
The woman was a local Long Beach dog walker. She was helping clients by taking their pups for a ride. The van struck with such speed that witnesses could barely understand the severity of the situation until the van struck the Ford Escape.
Major to Minor Injury
The woman was the victim of a fatal car accident. Thankfully, not all car accidents result in death, but they almost always result in life-changing circumstances. Injuries common to car accidents include:

The majority of these injuries can take from weeks to years to recover. The whole time you are recovering, you are more than likely be unable to work.
