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.”

“If you are injured or lost a loved one in a crash with a truck driver it’s important to contact an experienced truck accident attorney to secure your rights,” said Attorney West Thomas. “Indeed, an attorney who handles these types of cases knows for example that modern trucks are equipped with technology similar to a black box on an airplane that can be valuable evidence in a case, but only if it is preserved as evidence immediately after a crash.”

HESPERIA, California – Sergio Marin, 32, of Fontana died early New Year’s Day morning in a head-on car crash with another vehicle on Cottonwood Avenue, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 1:44 a.m., Marin was traveling in the wrong direction in the southbound lanes of Cottonwood Avenue when his 1994 Honda Civic collided head-on with a 1997 Acura carrying two adults and three juveniles, the coroner and the Press Enterprise reported. Marin died at the scene of the two-vehicle crash, but the five victims in the other vehicle were transported to different nearby hospitals with serious injuries, the Press Enterprise reported.

“New Year’s Eve night is one of the most dangerous times to be traveling,” said Attorney West Thomas, founder of the Thomas Law Firm. “My condolences to the family of the man who died and prayers to those who survived that they fully recover from their injuries.”

Those who are injured in traffic accidents due to someone else’s negligence may recover compensation for their medical costs, lost wages and other financial losses in a personal injury lawsuit against the driver’s insurance carrier. Studies have shown that victims who are represented by an attorney typically recover roughly 3.5 times more in compensation than those who work directly with an insurance adjuster, Thomas said.

Witnesses to the New Year’s Day car accident are asked to contact Deputy Kevin McCurdy at 760-947-1500.
