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.

I want to offer my heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the couple’s family and friends for their loss in this tragic accident.
