Hesperia nursing student killed in head-on crash near hospital

A Hesperia woman who was on her way to work at Desert Valley Hospital was killed in a head-on crash in the early morning hours of June 1. The 26-year-old woman, who worked as a respiratory intern and was studying to be a nurse, was just half a block from the hospital when another driver headed in the opposite direction on Bear Valley Road reportedly crossed over into her lane and collided with her.

The woman, according to a family member, was driving to the hospital at 4:45 a.m. because she had been asked to cover a shift. She didn't survive to make it to the hospital for treatment. She died at the scene. The other driver was injured. He was taken to a different hospital.

The crash is still being investigated by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. They have yet to say publicly if the driver who struck the woman was under the influence and what caused him to drive into oncoming traffic. Authorities are asking for information from anyone witnessed the crash.

The young woman's family has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for her funeral expenses. According to the page, she had two young children, ages 3 and 5, and she "was doing everything she could to give them a better life." According to her uncle, she was the first person in the family to go to college.

While no amount of money can bring back a loved one killed by a reckless, negligent or drunk driver, compensation from a civil lawsuit can help surviving family members pay for their loved one's final expenses and provide needed financial assistance when they have lost a wage earner or there are children left to raise. While a lawsuit may be the last thing that a family wants to think about after enduring such a trauma, an experienced, compassionate attorney can provide valuable guidance and assistance.
