HESPERIA, California (May 1, 2013) – The driver of a Sara Lee bakery truck allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign Tuesday morning and was broadsided a Buick sedan killing Helen Marie Bramasco and critically injuring her passenger, according to a report by the Daily Press.

About 11:25 a.m., the driver of the 2007 Isuzu box delivery truck was heading southbound on C Avenue and approaching the intersection with Olive Street, the report said. Police believe the truck driver crashed into the 1995 Buick Park Avenue driven by Bramasco because he failed to stop for a stop sign. The impact of the crash pushed the Buick up onto the curb where it struck a fence at the Hesperia Christian School and daycare, the Daily Press said.

Bramasco was taken by air ambulance to Loma Linda University Medical Center where she later died at 2:04 p.m. Her passenger was also air-lifted to the hospital’s trauma center for treatment of major injuries, the report said.

The fatal truck accident will be under investigation by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department MAIT Division, but victims of fatal crashes such as this should consider hiring experienced legal counsel that specializes in truck accidents to represent them in a wrongful death or personal injury action against the company whose drivers caused this crash.

“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort the family and friends of these two victims as they cope with such an incredible loss and a difficult recovery,” Attorney West Thomas said.  “The thoughts and prayers of our staff are with them as they try to piece together what happened and come to terms with his death.”
