Stockton Deadly Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton auto accident attorney. A man passed away after a two car crash in Stockton on Friday, July 1, 2016, according to Stockton Police Department officers.

What Happened?

The deadly accident occurred shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Brookside Road and Pershing Avenue. The man who passed away was driving south of Pershing Avenue when he crashed his car into another vehicle.

Officers indicated the other driver suffered only moderate injuries as a result of the collision.

Road Reopened 

The accident caused quite a delay in travel time as many motorists had to be diverted away from the accident scene so authorities could perform an investigation.

What Caused the Crash?

The cause of the collision is under investigation. It typically takes a week or so for the investigating agency to prepare a report of their findings and release a traffic collision report. Sometimes these reports are in error or inconclusive. This can leave the family members of the deceased party with many unanswered questions.

It is important to contact an experienced auto accident attorney who will utilize witness statements, accident reconstructionists and other investigative tools to determine the cause of the crash.
