Driver Ran Red Light, Crashes into Two Motorists Killing 3 People, Injuring 4 Others

UPDATE: Shawn Michael Scott, 33, of Fontana, and Helen Terry Amaya, 33, of El Monte Identified as Two Adults Killed in Crash

FONTANA, California (Oct. 22, 2013) –  Three people are dead including a 2-year-old girl after a 3-vehicle crash Monday morning at the intersection of Citrus Avenue and Foothill Boulevard, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner.

About 8:38 p.m., witnesses told police that the driver of an SUV sped through a red light, struck the driver of a blue truck and a third vehicle that were stopped at the traffic light.

The 2-year-old girl and a man who were in the third vehicle died at the scene of the crash. A 33-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital where she later died of major injuries sustained in the crash at 10:14 p.m., the coroner said. Four others were injured in the crash, but details were not disclosed.

The Fontana Police Department is investigating the collision.

“The driver who caused this fatal crash must be held accountable for their actions,” said Attorney West Thomas. “These people did not deserve to lose their lives in this way because a driver was in a hurry to make the light or any other reason.”

Police will likely file criminal charges against the driver who ran the red light and caused the crash. The families of the victims killed in this crash and those injured, may file a civil lawsuit against the driver as well.

“There are always going to be reckless drivers on our roadways, however, the victims of these crashes should not have to suffer or struggle to pick up the pieces after such an incident,” Thomas said.

John Bedard, 45, of Montana Killed in Anaheim Motorcycle Accident

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

ANAHEIM, California – John Bedard, 45, of East Helena, Montana was killed Tuesday afternoon in a motorcycle crash on the eastbound State Route 91 freeway, just west of the Interstate 5 freeway, according to a press release issued by the Orange County Sheriff Coroner Department.

The 3:15 p.m. crash reportedly took place in the car pool lanes which were subsequently closed following the crash, according to news reports.

Paramedics transported Mr. Bedard to UCI Medical Center in Orange where he succumbed to his injuries about 8:09 p.m. that night. The California Highway Patrol’s Westminster division is investigating the motorcycle crash to determine its cause and who is liable for the death of Mr. Bedard.

The police investigation will seek to find out if there are any other circumstances that led to the crash including whether anyone involved was under the influence of alcohol, drugs or distracted. Also, police are seeking to find out if there are circumstances that may have led to the crash that were illegal or reckless such as speeding.

“Families of victims killed in motorcycle accidents not only have to cope with the loss of a loved one, but later their lives may be forever changed due to the loss of income and other costs,” said Attorney West Thomas, a motorcycle rider and personal injury lawyer. “We all pay to have insurance to cover us in case there is an accident because the victims will need money for their medical needs and so many other financial losses.”
