What preparedness will give you is peace of mind and a better chance of surviving the fire’s wrath. Let’s take a look at the impact of a wildfire, what steps you can take to stay alert to its progress and what you can do to lessen the trauma of a necessary evacuation.

Fatality Reported in San Joaquin County Car Accident

Fatality Reported in San Joaquin County Car Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton car accident lawyer. Traffic was blocked off along Highway 4 west of Stockton due to a fatal car accident on August 9, 2018. Preliminary reports by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) suggested that the collision occurred shortly after 8:30 in the morning near Victoria Island. The motorist of a 1998 Lexus sedan reportedly pulled out from the shoulder of the roadway and lost control. The Lexus then sideswiped another vehicle, continued to veer out of control, and struck another car. The impact of the collision caused the Lexus to crash into an irrigation canal in the area. Unfortunately, the Lexus driver succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Authorities have not yet released his identity due to pending notification of next-of-kin.

I would like to send my sincere sympathies to the friends and family of the man who passed away in this tragic crash.
