Crash Kills Stockton Residents

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton personal injury attorney. Two friends were traveling along Interstate 580 during the early morning hours of Sunday, December 18, 2016. A commute between the two friends turned into their last moments together when they were involved in a fatal rear-end collision.

What Happened?

Two men were traveling in their Nissan sedan eastbound along Interstate 580 near Livermore. For reasons that have not been disclosed by authorities, the two men were struck from the rear by a Chevrolet Tahoe in the vicinity of West Grant Line Road at approximately 4:30 am. The impact of the crash propelled the Nissan off the roadway causing it to collide with a dirt embankment.

What Caused the Accident?

The California Highway Patrol have not revealed what caused the accident in their accident report . The driver of the Chevrolet Tahoe is cooperating with the investigation. It is still unclear to investigators why the Chevrolet Tahoe rear-ended the Nissan sedan. Although, authorities do not suspect drugs or alcohol to have contributed as  factors in the crash.

Were They Okay?

The driver of the Chevrolet Tahoe, also from Stockton, was transported to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries. Unfortunately, the two men in the Nissan sedan were pronounced deceased at the scene.

Two Young Lives Forever Remembered

The two men in the Nissan sedan were identified as 19-year-old Donovan Paramore and 21-year-old David Johnson. Both Paramore and Johnson were residents of Stockton. The two men shared a good friendship and worked together as collaborators. Both were outstanding and talented young men that will be forever remembered in the hearts of their family members. Two separate GoFundMe accounts have been set up for Paramore and Johnson by their loved ones

We extend our condolences to the family members of these two young men that have passed away in this tragic accident.
