Man Chokes on Soda and Crashes into Tree
In what almost sounds like a News of the Weird clip, a man choked on a gulp of soda while driving, passed out and hit a tree. The freak traffic accident occurred in San Juan Capistrano on the Ortega Highway just east of Antonia parkway around 10:15 a.m. The man had been driving a red compact Subaru when he took a sip from his drink and choked. He then reportedly grew unconscious and drove off the roadway, crashing into a wire fence before striking the tree.
The unidentified man sustained an apparent broken collar bone cuts and scrapes and was taken to Mission Hospital.
Although this unfortunate solo car accident happened due to a freak occurrence, there are far too many that can be traced to faulty auto parts. When this happens, the injured party or their family members can file a product liability lawsuit against the car’s manufacturer. Such a lawsuit usually maintains that the vehicle’s maker showed negligence by putting an automobile in the road that was dangerously constructed. If a car has malfunctioned and caused you injury you can file a personal injury lawsuit under product liability laws.
