Fatal Accident in La Puente

According to the most recent statistics, approximately 300 people were killed in crashes that happened in Los Angeles County in 2021. Unfortunately, that represents an increase in the number of fatalities when compared to  2019 and 2020. There is no single explanation for the greater number of deaths. However, speeding and reckless driving are among the most common reasons for serious and deadly crashes to occur. Drivers who operate their vehicles in a negligent manner do so at their own peril and are also placing the lives and safety of others at risk.
