YUCCA VALLEY, California (August 19, 2013) –  A 56-year-old Yucca Valley woman died Sunday night after being struck by a vehicle on State Highway 62 at Scarvan Avenue, according to a press release by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department. On Tuesday, the coroner identified the victim as Judity M. James.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene of the crash as well as paramedics, but the woman was pronounced dead just minutes after the crash at 8:32 p.m.

A full investigation is underway by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

“Pedestrians are especially vulnerable to injury or death when they are out of their vehicle on a busy highway, however, motorists must proceed with caution when they are driving past the ,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, whose offices are about a mile from the scene of the crash. “The circumstances of this tragic accident are not fully known at this time, but my condolences go out to the family of this woman as they cope with her sudden loss.”

VICTORVILLE: Richard Story, 55, of Carlsbad Killed, Driver Critically Injured in US 395 Head-on Crash

Car Crash on US 395 Highway Kills Man in Victorville, California.

San Bernardino Personal Injury Attorney Reports on Fatal Victorville Crash on US 395

VICTORVILLE, California (August 13, 2013) –  Richard Story, 55, of Carlsbad was killed and another driver critically injured in a head-on car crash on US Route 395, just south of Luna Road, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 9:44 p.m., Story was driving a Volvo sedan in the northbound lanes of the SR 395 when the driver of a BMW who was heading southbound veered suddenly into opposing traffic and struck the Volvo head-on, the report said.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the traffic accident. Story, however, was pronounced dead at the scene and the other unidentified driver was taken by air ambulance to a nearby hospital. The two-vehicle crash is under investigation by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

“The US Route 395 is an especially deadly stretch of roadway,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “Drivers are often fatigued as they undertake long journeys on this roadway and may find themselves drifting into opposing traffic. Police will investigate what exactly happened in this accident to determine its cause.”

Indeed, police take many steps following a fatal or serious injury crash to determine liability including taking measurements, photographing the accident scene, speaking with anyone involved in the accident as well as witnesses and create a police report. Depending on their findings, a driver may be cited for reckless driving, speeding or some other traffic violation.

Ultimately, police will determine who they believe is liable for the crash. Most crashes are accidents, but some involve negligence on the part of one or both drivers. For example, a person who falls asleep while driving is negligent because they should not have been on the road if they were not alert and able to drive safely. On the other hand, a person who loses control of a vehicle due to an unknown mechanical error may not be found negligent, but still held liable if they injure someone else in a crash.

At The Seegmiller Law Firm, our attorneys have handled numerous claims on behalf of injured people who have unfortunately been involved in a car accident. Our firm also represents people who have lost a loved one in a car crash. Indeed, our law firm recently settled a claim on behalf a man whose wife was killed in a crash on the 395 at Kramer Junction.

After more than three decades in business, our attorneys know the ins and outs of the law as it pertains to personal injury, as well as tactics used by many unscrupulous insurance companies who may try to slant evidence in their favor to support their view of how the accident took place.   Do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation with one of our experienced car accident attorneys at 1-855-275-9378.
