Fatal Evening Accident in Brentwood
I’m Ed Smith, a Brentwood Wrongful Death Lawyer. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is investigating a single vehicle accident that caused fatal injuries to one party on Thursday, July 5, 2018. Officers responded to reports of an accident that caused a light pole to be knocked down along the northbound section of Deer Valley Road at approximately 6:19 p.m. Upon arrival, officials discovered a fallen power pole blocking traffic lanes and a 2007 Toyota Camry in a nearby ditch. The Toyota driver was reportedly ejected from the vehicle in the collision and was, unfortunately, pronounced deceased at the scene. The identity of the victim has been withheld from the public due to pending notification of next-of-kin. However, preliminary reports suggested that the individual was a 54-year-old woman from Discovery Bay.
I would like to extend my sincere prayers and sympathy to the friends and family of the victim.
