RIALTO, California – A 46-year-old Rialto man who died Saturday at Loma Linda University Medical Center nearly two weeks after he was critically injured in a crash did not fall asleep behind the wheel of his 1998 Saturn as previously reported, according to new information received by the Seegmiller Law Firm.
The San Bernardino County Coroner office previously reported the man fell asleep, but our law firm has learned that the man suffered a mild heart attack while driving.
The man was hospitalized after the 8:09 a.m. crash where he struck a 2012 Toyota truck head on in the 2500 block of N. Locust Avenue.
“My heart goes out to the family of this man,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “The initial reports were incorrect about him falling asleep behind the wheel and we are happy to correct the error on our website.”
