Elk Grove Pregnant Woman Tragically Killed

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove Auto Accident Attorney. A woman from Elk Grove passed away after being struck by a car in Marina, California. The accident occurred on Saturday, June 25, 2016.

What Happened?

According to authorities in Marina, California, Nicole Tomasello, 25, of Elk Grove, California was walking out of a Walmart store pushing a grocery cart when she was struck by a car.

The Walmart Store where the tragedy happened is located at 105 Beach Road in Marina, California. Tomasello had traveled to the Marina, California area for a visit. Marina is located near Monterey, California.

Pinned Beneath Vehicle

Nicole Tomasello was four months pregnant. The crash caused her to be pinned beneath the vehicle. Rescue personnel pulled her out and rushed her to a trauma hospital. Sadly, she died from the severe nature of her injuries. Her unborn child passed away also.

What Caused the Accident?

The cause of the accident is unknown. Marina detectives are still investigating to determine what caused the tragic accident.

It usually takes the investigating authorities a week or two to prepare an accident report of their findings. Sometimes reports can be inconclusive or in error.

Importance of Conducting Independent Investigation

It is important to have an experienced attorney conducting an independent investigation, especially when someone has died and cannot give their version of what happened.

The driver who struck Tomasello has been cooperating with Marina police. Authorities are unsure whether criminal charges will be pursued against the driver.

Parking Lot Security Cameras

Investigators reviewed video of the parking lot that was captured by security cameras. The video suggests that many shoppers may have seen the accident. These witnesses could potentially have important information about the events leading up to the crash.

Marina Police Asking for Public’s Help

The Marina Police Department is asking anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision and might have seen something to call (831) 884-1290.
