Palm Desert, CA – Head On Collision Kills One

Palm Desert, CA (November 15, 2018) – At approximately 11:30 on Thursday morning a two-car collision on Cook Street resulted in a major road closure and the death of one man.

According to sources, Jorn Winther, 88, of Sherman Oaks died at the scene after a vehicle headed south on Cook Street lost control and veered across northbound lanes into oncoming traffic where it collided with another car. We have not yet learned which of the two vehicles involved Winther was driving. Police do not believe that drugs or alcohol played any role in this morning’s fatal accident.

At this time no other information is available. The police are continuing to investigate the accident to determine the cause.

Wrongful Death in California

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the friends and family of Jorn Winther. We know that this is a sad and troubling time for all those who knew him.

Once the investigation into this tragic accident is complete, if it turns out that fault lies with the other driver then the estate of Mr. Winther will be in a position to file a wrongful death suit against him. When an estate seeks damages in a wrongful death suit, what they are looking for is compensation for what has been taken from them. Factors like medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.

The death of a loved one can take a huge emotional toll on those left behind. You and your family are already grieving a terrible loss, there is no reason for you to suffer financial hardship on top of everything else. If you have lost a loved one due to the careless disregard of someone else, please give the Los Angeles Injury Group a call at (310) 954-7248 and benefit from a free consultation with one of our qualified attorneys. We would be happy to go over the specifics of your wrongful death case and let you know what options you have available to you.
