Christopher Bostic, 45, Arrested on Hit-and-Run, Vehicular Manslaughter Charges

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

TEMECULA, California — Christopher Bostic, 45, of Temecula was arrested Sunday and transferred to the jail ward at Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley where he is being held on charges of felony hit-and-run and manslaughter charges, according to a report in the Press Enterprise.

Police arrested Bostic at Loma Linda University Medical Center and charged him with vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence for the deaths of an elderly couple who died after he crashed into their vehicle on Rancho California Road, the Press Enterprise said.
On Oct. 20, Bostic was fleeing the scene of two minor crashes when he ran a red traffic light, clipped another vehicle and broadsided a Honda CRV driven by

Amar Jain, 74, of Yorba Linda.  Jain and his wife, Cheryl Jain, 68, were both killed in the crash, the coroner reported.
Bostic is accused of fleeing a multiple-vehicle crash on Rancho California Road near Hope Way as well as a second crash involving an injury that he also fled.

He continued driving on Rancho California and ran a red light at Jefferson Avenue.  That’s when he struck the Honda and killed Amar and Cheryl Jain as well as injured himself, the report said.

Police say Bostic told them he doesn’t remember the crashes or anything that happened after he went home from work that afternoon to send a fax, the report said.

“This is a terrible tragedy for all those involved and their family members,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “My prayers are with these victims and their friends and families who are coping with such tremendous loss.”

Police will investigate the circumstances of this fatal crash to determine why Bostic acted the way he did. So far, the investigation has revealed that drugs and alcohol were not factors, but Bostic’s medical records will also need to be looked at.

The family of the victims who were killed in this crash can also seek justice by filing a wrongful death claim against Bostic. The criminal charges against him is only one way victims obtain justice after a wrongful death.  Bostic can also be held civilly liable for his actions and the victims may receive compensation for their losses including funeral expenses and loss of support.

17 Injured in Victorville Elementary School Bus Crash

Friday, October 12th, 2012

VICTORVILLE, California –  A collision between an elementary school bus and a U-Haul truck injured 17 children ages 9 to 11 years old Thursday afternoon on Nisqualli Road at San Juan Street, according to the Press Enterprise newspaper.

The crash took place just after 2 p.m. A woman in a U-Haul truck backed  out of a driveway into Nisqualli Road and into the path of the school bus carrying 39 students from the nearby Galileo Academy in Victorville.

The school bus driver swerved in an effort to avoid the crash, but the truck struck the front of the bus knocking it onto its side. Two children were transported by paramedics to Loma Linda University Medical Center where they were treated for serious, non-life threatening injuries. The other 15 injured children and the bus driver were treated for minor injuries on scene and at least 10 of the children were transported to a hospital.

The mother and daughter in the U-Haul truck were not injured in the crash.

The California Highway Patrol is investigation the school bus accident to determine liability.

School Transportation Crash Statistics

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, there have been 1,386 people killed in school transportation-related crashes since 2000.  Roughly 139 people are killed annually in these types of crashes, but only 8 percent of those killed were actually occupants of the school vehicle, the report said. Most of the fatalities were others such as pedestrians and bicyclists who made up about 20 percent of those killed and those in other vehicles represent roughly 72 percent of the deaths, the report said.

“Riding on a school bus is generally very safe for children, but if they are injured in a crash the individual who is responsible for the accident is liable for their injuries,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm.

Vanessa Rosales Killed, Five Injured in Crash Involving San Bernardino Police Vehicle

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

VICTORVILLE, California – Vanessa Rosales, 38, of Adelanto was killed and five others injured after a sheriff’s deputy allegedly caused a chain-reaction crash involving three vehicles Sunday night just a few miles from the Southern California Logistics Airport, according to reports by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department and The Press Enterprise.

Rosales was a passenger in the 1991 Honda Accord traveling on Air Express Way, roughly a quarter of a mile west of Village Drive about 7:58 p..m. The sheriff’s deputy was driving a patrol car in the same eastbound lanes, according to the Press Enterprise report. After the police cruiser rear-ended the Honda the vehicle was pushed into the westbound lanes where it was hit head on by a Mercedes Benz traveling westbound.

Rosales was transported to Victor Valley Community Hospital where she died of her injuries a short time later at 8:44 p.m.

A minor also traveling in the Honda suffered moderate injuries in the crash. Paramedics transported the child by helicopter to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

Immysha Smith, who was driving the Honda, suffered minor injuries in the crash and received treatment at a hospital.

The driver of the Mercedes, Jennifer Tompkins, the deputy and the juvenile prisoner also suffered minor injuries in the three-car crash.

According to the Press Enterprise, the deputy was transporting a juvenile prisoner to Apple Valley Juvenile Detention Center at the time of the crash.

The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department Major Accident Investigations Team is investigating the incident.

“Typically the driver who rear-ends another vehicle is considered negligent under California law and ultimately will be liable for injuries or the wrongful death of anyone involved in the crash,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, a San Bernardino County personal injury attorney.

Anyone considering a lawsuit against a government entity must act quickly to reserve their rights as there are shorter statutes of limitations or time limits for filing a claim, Seegmiller said. Also, before you can even file a claim against a government office you have to give them notice that you are going to file the claim.

“It’s a complicated process, however, in the case of a wrongful death it’s important that the victim’s family can obtain justice for their loved one,” Seegmiller said.

San Bernardino County Car Accident Statistics

There were 15 people killed and 309 injured in traffic accidents in Victorville in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Report. San Bernardino County reported a total of 203 killed and 7,915 injured the same year.

In California, fatal traffic accidents were down 12% to 2,715 deaths in 2010 compared to 3,090 killed in 2009, according to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Additionally, national statistics show that traffic fatalities have declined in recent years across the United States, down roughly 3% to 32,885 deaths in 2010 compared to 33,883 killed in 2009.
