Deadly Halloween Night Car Accident in Vallejo
One person was left with fatal trauma during a car accident in Vallejo that happened just after midnight on November 1, 2020. The Vallejo Police Department (VPD) reported that the crash involved a single passenger vehicle and left three people in addition to the decedent with serious injuries. The Solano County Sheriff’s Office is withholding the decedent’s identity at this time. While the crash remains under investigation, VPD has placed the involved driver under arrest on DUI charges.
The crash reportedly occurred shortly before 12:20 p.m. on Lewis Brown Drive near the intersection of Sonoma Boulevard. Police stated that they observed a vehicle traveling at high speeds on Lewis Brown near the intersection of Mini Drive and that the vehicle continued driving westbound until it eventually veered off-road and collided with a traffic pole.
Police discovered that all four occupants of the vehicle had been seriously injured and immediately called for paramedics and ambulances. All vehicle occupants were rushed to nearby hospitals for emergency care. Tragically, one of the passengers of the car lost their life while in hospital custody. Information regarding the condition of the other two passengers has not been released.
Arrest and Investigation
The driver of the vehicle, identified as a 22-year-old man from San Rafael, was formally arrested at the crash scene before being released into hospital custody. After being cleared by hospital staff, the driver was transferred to the Solano County jail on suspicion of driving under the influence resulting in fatal injuries.
As police continue to investigate possible causal factors involved in this accident, investigators have asked for public assistance. Anybody who may have witnessed the collision or has relevant information is urged to get in touch with the VPD Traffic Division by calling (707) 648-4011.
Wrongful Death Damages
The loss of a person that you love is never an easy thing to endure and can be even harder if they passed away unexpectedly. For this reason, people affected by deadly car accidents can be devastated and often experience intense grief. Dealing with these feelings can take a long time but is often possible with the help of friends and family.
However, fatal accidents can also be a major financial burden for grieving families. Often, families are saddled with medical bills related to the incident. Additionally, they may suffer a sudden loss of income and/or valuable services. These problems can make it hard to focus on coping with your grief.
Because these issues are serious, it is important for families to reach out to an attorney for help. In many cases, families are able to obtain payments for their economic and personal damages by filing wrongful death claims. Furthermore, knowing that an expert wrongful death lawyer is on your side and handling your case can help you to focus on healing emotionally and spending time with your loved ones.
