Turlock Accident Fatally Injures Three
A single-vehicle accident in Turlock claimed the lives of three on December 3, 2018. The accident occurred at approximately 2:30 in the morning along North Golden State Boulevard in the vicinity of the Geer Road intersection. A southbound vehicle struck a tree in a sidewalk planting bed and tore it out. The car continued for a short time before colliding with a sign and light post in front of a nearby car wash. Unfortunately, the three occupants of the vehicle succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Officials have identified those fatally injured in the accident as 20-year-old Sean Acosta, 19-year-old Angel Munoz, and 19-year-old Kurtis Acosta, all residents of Stockton.
I would like to extend my deep sympathy and support to the grieving loved ones of the three parties who lost their lives in this devastating accident.
Authorities have reported that they are looking into what factors may have caused this accident. Thus far, no suspected factors have been determined in the investigation. Two separate GoFundMe pages, one for Angel Munoz and the other for Sean and Kurtis Acosta, have been established to help cover their funeral expenses.
Auto Accidents and Wrongful Death
When a loved one is killed in an auto accident, it can create an intense emotional toll on surviving family members. It can also lead to severe financial hardship, especially if the decedent was the primary income provider of his or her family. When this happens, certain family members may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for the death of their loved one when the death was caused due to a negligent person or entity. While no amount of money can make up for a loved one’s death, monetary compensation can help put your mind at ease knowing that your financial concerns will be alleviated as you grieve.
What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Claim?
When a single-vehicle accident causes fatal injuries, the families and dependents of decedents may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the driver responsible for the collision.
