Auto Accident Fatally Injures Two Near Tracy

I’m Ed Smith, a Tracy car accident lawyer. A mother and her daughter were driving together in Tracy recently when the unthinkable happened. The two were involved in a serious car accident which, unfortunately, caused them both to suffer fatal injuries.

During this time of grief, my thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the mother and daughter who passed away.

Accident Details

A Fremont woman was behind the wheel of her Chevrolet Cobalt traveling along Middle Road near Lammers Road at about 5:35 am. At the same time, a 55-year-old Stockton woman was driving her Cadillac Escalade southbound along Lammers Road at approximately 55 miles per hour. The Chevrolet entered the intersection and was broadsided by the Cadillac on its passenger side. The impact of the collision propelled both vehicles into a nearby irrigation ditch southwest of the intersection. The Chevrolet landed on its roof in the water while the Cadillac landed on its wheels.

Nature of Injuries

Emergency crews were called to the scene of the crash. Upon arrival, crews freed the motorist and passenger of the Chevrolet and transported them to the San Joaquin General Hospital in French Camp. Unfortunately, they both succumbed to their injuries during hospitalization.

Identity of Victims

The two parties fatally injured in the auto accident have been identified as a 38-year-old Fremont woman and a 15-year-old Fremont girl. Family friends identified both parties as a mother and daughter through online news outlets.

Accident Investigation

The details surrounding the events that occurred before the accident were unclear, however, an ongoing investigation by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) continues. Authorities do not suspect drugs or alcohol to have played as factors in the collision.

Auto Accidents and Wrongful Death Claims

Losing someone you love is a devastating, life-changing experience, especially when compounded with financial losses. Those who have experienced a death in their family as a result of another party’s negligence may be entitled to compensation for their losses through a wrongful death claim. This type of claim may allow parties who were directly connected to the deceased party under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 337.60 to recover for the following damages:

  • Emotional distress and mental anguish connected to the death
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of care, guidance and training of a parent
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of inheritance

If you have lost a family member in a traffic collision where negligence was a factor, it is crucial to discuss your options with a seasoned wrongful death lawyer in Tracy. An experienced attorney can guide you through the process of filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible party for fair restitution of your loved one’s untimely passing.
