Accident in Santa Monica Tunnel
Traffic on the westbound 10 Freeway was brought to a standstill after an accident in Santa Monica.
According to Santa Monica police Sgt. Shawn Tooney, the accident occurred when a car crashed into the tunnel that connects the westbound 10 Freeway to Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica at 9:40 p.m. Two people were injured in the crash.
Tooney said that the two people in the car were taken to an area hospital to be checked for injuries. Drunken driving does not appear to have been a factor in the crash.
Sometimes it can be unclear how an accident was caused. How the investigation turns out will determine just who has to pay for any damages and injuries after an accident.

When an accident does happen, lost wages and time off the job and increased insurance rates can leave families reeling and feeling the pressure. That’s the time to have an attorney working for you who will see that justice is served.
