Bystanders managed to pull the two women out of the vehicle without fatal injuries before authorities arrived. Thevehicle fell from the third floor of a parking building at the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego, California, on a Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Investigators in the case presume that the driver incorrectly pressed the accelerator instead of the brake while trying to park the vehicle.

And speaking of car accidents and injuries…
Let’s dig a little deeper into the most common types of injuries suffered when car accidents occur. A collision is an exchange of energy determined by two factors that are the direction and force that are received during said exchange, knowing these variables serves as guidance when attending to the injured.
- Frontal collision the force of the impact: is the sum of the force ofboth vehicles, creating an expansive movement that stops suddenly when the vehicle stops, but passengers who do not wear seat belts continue to move tend to suffer dislocation or fracture of knees and hips, compression injuries and Pulmonary contusion.
- Rear collision: happens when a parked vehicle or at low speed, is impacted in the rear by another whose speed is considerably higher, the force of the blow projects the impacted vehicle forward and also its passengers are prone to suffer injuries of the neck and at the level of the cervical vertebrae.
- Side collision to the vehicle: when impacted in the sides it is displaced from the place ofthe blow, an effect that produces compression injuries to limbs and organs.
- Overturning: due to the violent and unbridled movement ofthe car, passengers can receive multiple blows at several different angles, hitting different organs in turn, this makes it more complicated to determine the injuries suffered by passengers.
