Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that left an officer seriously injured. Accidents like this are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. This type of accident usually happens because of driver error, meaning they are preventable. Sadly, the innocent victims of these crashes are rendered powerless: often, there’s nothing you can do when an oncoming vehicle is bearing down on you. We wish that all involved have a speedy recovery from their injuries in this terrible accident.”
