Details of Incident

James Dunn, an 89-year-old North Highlands man, was traveling westbound along Palm Avenue in the vicinity of Roseville Road at about 6:00 pm. Dunn allegedly failed to stop at the intersection and was struck by an oncoming SUV that was driving along Roseville Road.

Dunn suffered major injuries and was transported to the hospital. Sadly, he passed away during his hospitalization.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family members of the elderly man who lost his life in this tragic crash.

That is why it is crucial to call and talk to an experienced accident lawyer who can investigate the sequence of events leading up to the collision to accurately determine fault. If negligence on the part of the other driver can be proven, and injury lawyer can help recover damages including wrongful death.
