Anderson Pedestrian Identified

Anderson Pedestrian Identified – The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office has identified a woman who recently suffered fatal injuries in an area crash. The accident took place on Wednesday, August 22, 2018, and involved a pedestrian and passenger vehicle. The pedestrian was identified as Linda Sue Reed, a 63-year-old resident of Anderson. My condolences and sympathy are sent out to Reed’s family and loved ones as they are mourning their tragic loss.

Crash Information

The accident took place on Highway 273 to the north of the Happy Valley Road exit south of Redding. Reed had been crossing the highway on foot at about 9:45 p.m. As she was walking over the southbound lanes, an oncoming white-colored Honda Sedan struck her. Whether or not the sedan saw Reed or attempted to avoid the collision has not been made clear by authorities. California Highway Patrol (CHP) officials stated that the vehicle was driven by a 27-year-old woman from Redding who was not injured during the fatal crash. However, the driver’s name has not yet been released.  CHP said they are still conducting a full investigation of possible factors related to the crash.

Response and Investigation

Medical responders, who were sent to the accident site by CHP dispatch, reported that they found Reed with major injuries when they arrived at the crash scene. Medics were not able to help her, and she was declared dead before she could be put in an ambulance.

While CHP is investigating the crash, officers have not stated why they suspect the accident occurred. Accidents such as this one happen for many reasons and sometimes are caused by multiple factors. These factors can include driving while distracted, traffic violations, brake failure, bad roadway designs, and more.

Wrongful Death Damages

When a loved one passes away in a sudden accident, their families and dependents often don’t know what to do. Deep feelings of grief can make it difficult to handle going about your normal daily life. Having to deal with the details of reclaiming money for your loss can seem even harder. However, those responsible for the accident are often not in a state of mourning and are quick to begin defending themselves from liability. Calling a lawyer can not only help you know what you are owed for your loss but can also mean preventing liable parties from obscuring key evidence.

Most attorneys will offer a free consultation where you can get important information about your case and learn about the types of damages that you can recover including loss of income, pain and suffering, loss of income, funeral costs, and more.
