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.
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?
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:
- Back Injury
- Cervical Sprain and Strain
- Chest Trauma
