Wrongful death case could follow suspected California DUI crash

California roads are often filled with safe drivers. These drivers follow traffic signals and speed limits. However, even drivers who are committed to safety are sometimes unable to avoid the actions of others who are willing to put their lives as well as the lives of those they may encounter as risk. Unfortunately, one family may be considering a wrongful death lawsuit following a recent crash that killed one woman and injured several.

The incident that reportedly led to the woman's death is said to have occurred during the early morning hours of a day in July. According to police, a vehicle sideswiped another vehicle, causing the former to collide with a sports utility vehicle. The SUV struck a tree, and its driver, a woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Woman dies in California motorcycle accident

There are many known risks when utilizing California roadways. Careful drivers make sure they are aware of these risks and attempt to take action to mitigate them. Unfortunately, other drivers who may not be as vigilant are sometimes unavoidable. For example, police believe that a recent fatal motorcycle accident was caused by a driver who turned into the path of the motorcyclist.

According to reports, the incident happened at approximately 6 p.m. on a day in July. A 25-year-old man and 19-year-old woman were reportedly riding on a motorcycle. Reports indicate that the 52-year-old driver of a sedan turned into their path, resulting in a collision.

Recent California accident potential wrongful death case

When driving in heavy traffic or during poor weather conditions, both drivers and passengers may start having concerns about their overall safety. However, most people in California likely feel relatively safe while at a stop. Unfortunately, a recent crash in California -- that could potentially result in a wrongful death lawsuit -- likely has many motorists questioning their safety at all times.

The incident happened one afternoon on a day in late June. According to reports, the driver of a pickup truck failed to stop in time for stopped traffic. As a result, the truck reportedly struck the rear of a sedan, pushing it into two other vehicles. All lanes of eastbound traffic were blocked as a result of the collision.

Most cars doing a better job of crash protection and avoidance

Look for better headlights in 2018 models. There were some new names, and some notably absent, in the 2017 list of safest cars. All in all, automakers continue to make strides in protecting drivers and passengers. The best cars have good crash protection, collision avoidance and other cutting-edge features.

Every year the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety raises the bar a little higher. In addition to five different crash tests, this year the IIHS added headlight effectiveness to the criteria for the elite status of “Top Safety Picks Plus.” Many vehicles were judged subpar, which likely means that many of next year’s models will have improved headlights. Win-win.

Fatal motorcycle accident under investigation in California

Because of the climate in California, the state often attracts motorcyclists, and they could be on the road at any time. As a result, and because they may be more difficult to see due to their smaller size in comparison to more traditional motor vehicles, drivers must remain vigilant at all times. Unfortunately, a man recently lost his life in a motorcycle accident.

The incident happened one day in late June. According to reports, the 25-year-old male was headed north on a motorcycle. Unfortunately, his motorcycle reportedly struck a sedan that had just turned onto their roadway.

It seems that over the years, car manufacturers continue to strive to upgrade safety features. However, despite their improvements, car accidents still occur, often as a result of the decisions that drivers make. Unfortunately, a recent fatal crash in California remains under investigation.

The incident happened one afternoon on a day in June. According to reports, the 54-year-old male driver of a van apparently lost control. As a result, the van left the highway before striking a utility pole, knocking the pole off its platform. The van continued on before striking a tree.

Car accidents: California driver allegedly crashes into houses

There are likely many places and situations in which a person worries about the safety and well-being of his or her children. However, most parents in California likely feel relatively safe when their child is playing in their front yard, especially in terms over concerns of involvement in car accidents. Unfortunately, one young boy was recently sent to the hospital after he was struck by a car while in his yard.

Reports indicate that the accident happened one evening on a day in mid-June. Police say that a vehicle left the roadway before driving through a front yard and porch before coming to a rest in another house. Unfortunately, an 8-year-old was injured after allegedly being struck by the car; reports indicate that he suffered liver damage and a shattered leg.

Avoiding a motorcycle accident in California

Because of the climate in California, motorcyclists often take to the roads year-round. However, some officials warn that as the weather gets even warmer, even more motorcyclists could be on the roadway. Unfortunately, an increase in riders can lead to an increase in accidents. The director of the Office of Traffic Safety as well as a representative from the California Highway Patrol have issued advice on how to avoid a motorcycle accident and protect the safety of all the users of the state's roadways.

Statistics provided by the Department of Motor Vehicles indicate that California has approximately 1.4 million motorcyclists with licenses as well as 884,000 registered motorcycles. While there was a decrease in the number of fatalities between 2015 and 2016 -- 476 killed in 2016 versus 500 in 2015 -- approximately 500 more were injured in 2016. The California Highway Patrol hopes to prevent injuries and fatalities this year.

Police suspect that the driver in a recent crash, that could potentially lead to a wrongful death claim, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
