Fatal accident on dangerous stretch of road

An accident on the southern California coast has taken the life of a 29-year-old woman and sent two people to the hospital. The residents of the area near the accident stated that the spot where it occurred, an intersection in Oceanside, was known to be particularly dangerous. However, witnesses of the wreck said that the truck that caused the multi-vehicle collision was not driving in a safe or appropriate manner.

The accident happened on Dec. 7 at 9 a.m. A Ford F-150 was driving through the intersection where State Route 78 turns to Vista Way and crosses Moreno Street when he ran into the rear end of a Kia driven by the deceased woman. Some witnesses said that he was going nearly 100 miles per hour, that he went through a red light and that he did not attempt to brake before hitting the car. This pushed the Kia into a Toyota truck while the F-150 went on to strike a Chevy pickup and a picket fence.

A preliminary report issued by the California police indicates that the 62-year-old man behind the wheel of the truck was at fault for the accident. He broke his wrist, and the driver of the Chevy was bruised. They were both taken to the hospital for treatment.

Any family who has lost one of their members in a car crash on the roads of California may choose to file suit against the responsible party and demand compensation. An attorney's advice can be of benefit as they seek to file their civil suit and, if necessary, to prove their case to the court. However, it is also possible that the attorney may be able to negotiate with the defendant and convince them to settle the case out of court.
