1 killed, 3 injured in fatal California collision: Car accidents

by | Sep 19, 2016 | Car Accidents, Firm News |

Many safe drivers in California go to great lengths to ensure that they always drive in a manner that protects both their safety as well as others in their vicinity. Unfortunately, there is often little to do when others choose to drive negligently. In some cases, a painted line on the road is the only protection from serious car accidents. Unfortunately, police claim that a woman has lost her life in a recent collision; three others were injured.

The accident happened one afternoon on a day in September. According to police reports, a pickup truck, driven by a 50-year-old man, crossed the centerline, slamming head-on into a vehicle driven by the woman. The female driver passed away as a result of the crash.

The three occupants of the truck were injured. A young boy was ejected into the back of the truck and transported to the hospital by helicopter. Witnesses claim that the male driver was speeding before the crash.

California prosecutors will determine what charges — if any — are appropriate as a result of the accident. While a conviction of criminal charges may give the surviving family members of the deceased woman some sense of closure, it will do little to help them cope with the financial consequences created by loss of wages and funeral expenses. Even if prosecutors decline to press charges, victims of car accidents can pursue justice in a civil court. If claims of negligence are successfully presented, these victims could receive a monetary award to help cope with these costs.
