Leyann Mercer, 28, Killed in Fatal Head-on La Quinta Crash

Monday, September 10th, 2012

LA QUINTA, California – Leyann Mercer, 28, of La Quinta was killed and three others were injured in a two-car crash Sunday night on Avenue 50 at Park Avenue, according to a press release issued by CAL FIRE/Riverside County firefighters.

Mercer was driving a Kia Spectra when she allegedly lost control of the vehicle and veered into opposing traffic where she was struck by another driver in a Nissan Altima. She died at the scene of the head-on car crash.

Paramedics responding to the scene of the crash transported a woman and two minor children in the Nissan to Desert Regional Medical Center for treatment of moderate injuries. The person who died in the crash was the driver of one of the vehicles and was alone in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

The fatal crash is being investigated by police to determine whether either driver was at fault in the crash.

“Traffic accidents can cause serious long-term injuries that require ongoing medical care, lost time off work and possible permanent injuries,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of a Riverside personal injury law firm. “Victims of car crashes need to protect their rights immediately after a crash to ensure they are compensated for their losses and damages.”

WHITEWATER: One Dead, One Critical in Crash Between SUV and Big Rig on I-10 Freeway

Monday, August 20th, 2012

WHITEWATER, California – (RIVERSIDE COUNTY) One person is dead and one critically injured after a sports utility vehicle collided with a big rig truck on the westbound Interstate 10 freeway early Monday morning, according to a press release issued by the CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department.

According to the report, the driver of the SUV and a passenger were both trapped inside the vehicle after it crashed with the tractor trailer truck. Emergency workers arriving at the scene of the truck accident had to extricate them both from the vehicle as they were trapped in the wreckage.

The injured victim was quickly transported to a local hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries sustained in the truck crash. The traffic collision took place in an area known for being one of the windiest areas of Southern California. Home to the San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm, the area is midway between North Palm Springs and Cabazon.

Riverside County Car Accident Statistics

According to California Statewide Integrated Traffic Report there were 190 fatal crashes and 7,632 people were injured in 2010 in Riverside County. Additionally, Riverside reported 12,809 crashes involving property damages.

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.

Riverside Car Accident Investigation

Police investigate every car accident involving a death to determine the cause of a crash in order to find out the liable party, said West Seegmiller, a Riverside wrongful death attorney.  A driver can be found negligent and liable for injuries they cause if they do not exercise ordinary care while driving on our roadways.  In other words, their behavior was not intentional, but it fell below the standard of care required for motorists and someone was injured or killed as a result of their actions.

“Distracted drivers, sleepy drivers or those eating or fiddling with personal belongings while behind the wheel would be considered negligent under California law,” Attorney West Seegmiller explains. “It’s not intentional, but it falls below the standard of ordinary care required under California law.”

The investigation will also seek to determine if a driver was under the influence of alcohol, drugs or distracted while using a cell phone or other electronic device. Also, police are seeking to find out if there are circumstances that may have led to the crash that were illegal or reckless.

“Families of victims killed in car accidents not only have to cope with the loss of a loved one, but later their lives are hindered due to the loss of income, funeral and medical costs,” said Seegmiller. “Every driver is required to have insurance in case they are in a car accident so they can assist and support financially anyone who is injured or killed.”
