Another bizarre car accident occurred this week, this time in Burbank, CA, a city near Sacramento’s strange sister to the south, Los Angeles.
On Monday, March 24, an elderly woman drove her vehicle into a post office, injuring three people, including herself. Apparently, according to the Los Angeles Times, the woman mistook her gas pedal for her brake. The Times states:
“Typically, that’s what happens in these cases,” Sanchez said. “It was an accident. There was no mechanical failure and no intent to cause harm.”
(Sanchez is Burbank Police Sergeant Tracy Sanchez, the reporting officer at the scene).
Three people were injured; the driver, a post office employee, and a 62-year-old man. None of them were seriously hurt although the 62-year-old man was taken to a hospital for a head injury. Officer Sanchez reported that he was “alert and conscious”.
It is unknown whether anyone involved has obtained an attorney.
Although the cause of this accident was accidental, and the elderly woman who caused it was not malicious in her conduct, she is still responsible for the injuries she inflicted on others.

Don’t Let Your Statute Of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date the incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.
