West Sacramento Accident Fatality on I-5

A West Sacramento accident fatality was reported on December 10 when a young man who recently graduated from River City High School was involved in a collision and then was struck by two vehicles as he walked along the road. According to the report by the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the driver, identified as Dante DePrato, was driving a Volkswagen on Interstate 5 northbound shortly after 1:00 in the morning when, for unknown reasons, he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the center median. I want to send my sympathy and prayers to the friends and family of the young man who died in this tragic way in their time of loss and sorrow.

What Happened?

Life turned upside down for the mother of a two year old child when she found her son’s small body crushed under an IKEA dresser that had fallen on him.  The mother shares her story on the site, HeavenHasaHero.com.

Since the death of their son, the parents of the deceased child, have moved forward with a wrongful death lawsuit against Ikea.  The dresser, had been purchased at a nearby Ikea store.  The MALM chest came without any hardware to secure it to the wall.  The couple allege that IKEA was aware that the dresser presented a  tip over hazard and allege that Ikea’s negligence played a role in the wrongful death of their son, Curren.   USA Today, a front runner in reporting this news item, states that ‘Ikea says it knows of reports of three additional deaths since 1989 from tip-overs involving other models of Ikea chests and dressers.’
