Road rage continues to be one of the most hazardous types of behavior drivers can exhibit. Those who make decisions based on anger while driving run a greater risk of creating dangerous scenarios that could place the well-being of everyone nearby in jeopardy. One person is in custody facing murder charges after a recent car accident led to the apparent wrongful death of three teenagers in California.
According to reports, the incident began when a group of teenagers decided to approach a house and ring the doorbell before quickly driving away from the scene. Authorities say that a resident of the home chose to hop in his car and pursue the group. They say that after catching up to them, the man used his car to ram their vehicle from behind, subsequently forcing the vehicle to run off the road and collide with a tree.
Authorities say the three of those riding in the vehicle suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. They also say that the man who caused the crash was subsequently taken into custody. He is now facing a variety of charges in relation to the crash, including murder charges.
Losing a child due to the actions of an angry driver can be a difficult thing to accept. Those who encounter a similar circumstance and wish to know more about their available legal avenues could find it helpful to seek legal counsel for advice on their options. Speaking with an attorney could help a person in California better prepare to pursue the restitution entitled through a wrongful death claim against the party deemed responsible.
