If you’ve ever been involved in a car accident, you know how scary the event and its aftermath can be. But imagine if you walked away from that crash a bit rattled, only to be struck down by another car in a second accident. This scenario was all too real for a San Diego woman who recently emerged from an initial car accident relatively unharmed but was struck by another vehicle while crossing the street to safety.
The Initial Accident
According to police and media reports, the unnamed woman was driving her car in the Sabre Springs area of San Diego when she allegedly lost control over her vehicle. She crossed the meridian, drove off the road, and ended up flipping her car. She emerged from her car without any major or obvious injuries and began to cross the street. At that moment, she was hit by a car driving westbound.
The driver of the other vehicle appears to be a 23-year-old female who was unaware of the initial accident. Upon striking the victim, she remained at the scene and contacted the authorities. The victim was taken to the hospital, where she received medical attention for a head injury and many broken bones. She is expected to survive and eventually recover.
