A Los Angeles car accident caused injuries to Oscar-winning actress Linda Hunt. Hunt famously won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 1983 for playing a male character, Billy Kwan, in “The Year of Living Dangerously.” According to CBS Los Angeles, the car accident occurred while the actress was driving in Hollywood.
The news reported that the 73-year-old actress, more recently a star in “NCIS: Los Angeles,” was driving in a black BMW SUV and making a left-hand turn. The black BMW SUV collided with a car and another SUV in the intersection.
Hunt was immediately taken to the hospital, though the severity of her injuries was not yet known. The other drivers in the incident also suffered minor injuries. Officers are still investigating the exact circumstances of the collision to determine who caused the crash.
Anytime a car accident involves more than one car, determining the cause can require an in-depth investigation. This type of investigation is important to determine who is at fault, so those injured can receive recovery for their injuries. In a crash like this one, the driver that caused the accident can be held civilly responsible for the personal injuries caused to others.
By filing a personal injury claim against the driver that caused the accident, those injured can receive financial recovery to help with the costs of their injuries. Even minor injuries can be costly and require significant time to fully recover. If you or someone you care about has been injured in a Los Angeles car accident, it is very important to immediately contact a Los Angeles car accident lawyer.
