TEMECULA, Calif. – A long road to recovery is ahead for several in the recent Temecula traffic collisions, both suspected DUI and both within days of each other.
The recovery includes, for both, the mourning of a loved one killed in the crash, for several injured there are surgeries, long term recovery, and physical therapy in their future. For the community, there is the heartbreak of seeing the accident scene over and over on newscasts or for some, even in person. The heartbreak has caused anger and some calling for changes in laws concerning intoxicated drivers and for some, make them want to reach out to help.
In the traffic collision on the 1-15 near Rancho California Road, besides for the woman killed two people suffered significant injuries and two other suffered minor to moderate injuries. Mike Rivera, of Wildomar, was one of those injured as he was heading to work. Following major impact to the Nissan sedan, the vehicle Rivera was in was also struck, sending it off of the freeway and into a concrete parking structure. His vehicle that he uses to get to work was a total loss, his family says. He is hospitalized with broken ribs, a broken leg, a broken spine, and a facial fracture. “Due to these severe injuries he is left with a long and painful road to recovery,” said Nohely Llamas in a Go Fund Me Account she created. “My uncle is the sole provider for his family and we are requesting your help with the unexpected tragedy that has changed his life.”
The goal on the Go Fund Me Account is $15,000 which will help the family with some of their needs during his time off of work. So far, over $6300 has been collected on behalf of the family.
