California doughnut shop crash kills 1, injures 5

One person died and four people suffered serious injuries in a California car accident on Oct. 4. The accident occurred at about 9:30 p.m. on DeSoto Avenue near Roscoe Boulevard in Canoga Park when a car crashed through a doughnut shop.

Surveillance video taken inside the property showed a silver Jeep Liberty entering one wall of the doughnut shop, located in the 8300 block of DeSoto Avenue and then exiting through another wall. The vehicle came to a stop in the middle of the road.

Several customers were inside the shop at the time of the crash. Five people were transported to a hospital where one of them was pronounced dead on arrival; the remaining four individuals were listed in critical condition. The doughnut shop owner said that the deceased victim was a transient man who was a regular customer. The driver of the Jeep was also taken to a hospital and later released. Reports did not indicate what injuries she suffered in the crash.

The Jeep's driver, a 42-year-old Granada Hills woman, lost control of the vehicle in a parking lot, according to sources. An investigation has not yet determined what caused the accident. It was unclear whether the woman would face charges.

Critical injuries resulting from car accidents may leave victims in pain and with severe disabilities for the rest of their lives. Families of deceased victims may struggle to move on after their loved ones' deaths and with the costs of burial and other expenses. An attorney might be able to provide victims or their families with information about filing personal injury or wrongful death suits to help defray medical, burial or other expenses after a car crash.
