Applications like Facebook and Instagram installed on a smartphone allow users to instantly take photos and videos of themselves, upload the content to their Facebook walls and social media accounts, tag other individuals included in the content, and indicate the exact location where the photo or video was taken. While the majority of this is innocent and fun, the truth of the matter remains that if a person has an ongoing personal injury case pending in court, these pictures and videos can be used against you in a court of law.

Recently a high-speed crash in Canoga Park, California took the life of young driver Steven Rodriguez, just two weeks after his 21st birthday. Authorities believe than an excessive rate of speed combined with possible alcohol consumption led to the catastrophic accident. Reports from the scene of the car crash state that Steven was driving at such an excessive rate of speed that upon impact with a fire hydrant the car was cut in half and split apart, and the hydrant flew into one of the nearby buildings. According to one witness who spoke to local station KTLA 5, “It was like a giant river of … car parts floating by,” said witness Angel Cerda. “Half of the car was on one side of the street, and the other half was on the other side of the street. The man was still in the car, sitting down, his seatbelt on. … It was a complete mess.”
We are devastated for Steven’s family and loved ones.
