The other occupant of the vehicle was extricated and rushed via ambulance to a local hospital for emergency medical treatment. The occupant is currently listed in critical condition.

The name of the deceased is being withheld until the next of kin can be located and notified. No additional information is available at this time. The investigation is still ongoing as police attempt to discover the cause of the accident.


Wrongful Death in California

A wrongful death claim is a civil suit, not a criminal one despite the imposing nature of its name. A question of wrongful death arises when someone dies as the result of the carelessness, disregard, wrongful act, or negligence of another person. A wrongful death suit is a claim for monetary damages. This type of claim may be brought to court by a survivor of the deceased or a representative of the deceased’s estate. If the lawsuit ends up being successful, then the defendant would be ordered to pay the survivors of the deceased.
