Livermore Crash Fatally Injures Stockton Woman

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton car accident attorney. A Stockton woman was driving her vehicle in Livermore during the morning of Friday, March 16, 2018. The woman was involved in an auto accident which, unfortunately, caused her to suffer fatal injuries.

We would like to share our comfort with the friends and family of Miss Abigail Garcia during their time of grief.

Accident Details

A woman was driving her 2013 Infiniti sedan northbound along Highway 84 in the vicinity of Stanley Boulevard at approximately 8:55 am. For unknown reasons, the Infiniti reportedly veered into the southbound lanes of travel in the direct path of a 2015 Dodge Ram pickup truck hauling a trailer. The Dodge driver was unable to avoid the Infiniti, resulting in a serious collision.

Nature of Injuries

An ambulance was needed at the scene to render emergency aid. Paramedics transported three parties in the Dodge to a hospital for treatment of injuries reported as minor. Unfortunately, the driver of the Infiniti was pronounced deceased by emergency personnel due to the severity of their sustained injuries.

Identity of Victim

The victim of the fatal accident has been identified by the Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau as 20-year-old Abigail Garcia of Stockton.

What Caused the Accident?

The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the Livermore Police Department. Authorities have not yet indicated whether alcohol or drugs were a contributing factor in the crash.

Common Injuries from Auto Accidents

Injuries sustained in car accidents vary in terms of their severity and consequences. Some of the common injuries associated with motor vehicle collisions include:

Injuries do not always present themselves immediately following an auto accident. Therefore, it is important to seek medical treatment right away regardless of whether you think you are hurt or not. This can protect your health and your personal injury claim.

Auto Accidents and Wrongful Death Claims

The death of an individual due to negligence or intentional acts is generally defined as a wrongful death. Certain family members of a deceased person may file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party. For more information contact an experienced attorney.
