Ojai Man Seriously Injured in PCH Accident

Pacific Coast Highway has always been an accident magnet as Los Angeles car accident lawyers will tell you. A couple of weeks ago, a fatal accident on a stretch of PCH left three people dead. Now, yet another accident has left two drivers seriously injured.

The California Highway Patrol is considering filing reckless driving charges against a motorist believed to be the cause of a serious head-on crash on the Pacific Coast Highway over the weekend. The accident left one person seriously injured. The accident occurred on Friday near Point Mugu.

According to eyewitness reports and the news accounts, 30-year-old Elaheh Ardesh was driving in the northbound lanes at up to 90 mph. The car crossed over into the southbound lanes. The car was traveling so fast that witnesses were not even able to get the license plate number. At least one eyewitness, who saw the reckless driver, called 911 to report that the driver was driving dangerously. Just a few minutes after the call, Ardesh’s car crashed head-on into another car being driven by an Ojai man. At the time of the accident, Elaheh Ardesh was illegally crossing over the double yellow lines.

The victim was injured seriously in the accident, and had to be rushed to the Ventura County Medical Center. Elaheh Ardesh also suffered injuries in the accident, but is expected make a full recovery. According to the California Highway Patrol, neither car had any passengers, which was a fortunate thing. The impact of the accident was so great that the glove compartment in each car was found in the backseat.

The California Highway Patrol is now considering filing charges of reckless driving against Elaheh Ardesh.
