Tracy Man Killed in Single Vehicle Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Tracy wrongful death lawyer. A single-vehicle accident claimed the life of a young man in an unincorporated area of Alameda County just outside Livermore on August 12, 2018. At approximately 8:00 in the morning, a man was driving his white Ford Mustang along Mines Road when he lost control of his vehicle while navigating a curve in the roadway and veered off a steep hill. This caused the Ford to crash into multiple trees which entrapped the driver inside. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), friends of the Ford driver were traveling in other vehicles and stopped after they saw the collision. Due to a lack of cell phone reception, the victim’s friends were prompted to extricate him out of the vehicle on their own and travel to an area with cell service to contact emergency personnel. The victim was later transported by emergency responders to an area hospital where he, unfortunately, succumbed to his injuries. Officials from the Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau have identified the victim as Jon Gullette, a 19-year-old man of Tracy.
I would like to send my thoughts and condolences out to the friends and family of Jon during this heartwrenching time.
