Identity of Those Killed in Garbage Truck Accident Revealed
I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove wrongful death lawyer. A deadly collision occurred on June 12 involving a car and a garbage truck. In an update, the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office recently identified Dennis Pfister, age 82, and his wife, Patricia, age 75, as those who died. The accident happened when the truck, carrying dead animals, went down an embankment and struck the vehicle. Mrs. Pfister died at the accident scene, and her husband had to be extricated from the vehicle, after which he was taken to Kaiser South with major injuries and died that same day.
I want to offer my heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the couple’s family and friends for their loss in this tragic accident.
