SAN DIEGO, California — Craig Steven Donato, 48, of San Marcos was killed Sunday night after his Dodge PT Cruiser crashed into the back with a slow-moving tractor trailer truck in the No. 4 lane of the northbound State Route 163 Highway just south of Genesee Avenue, according to a report by the San Diego Medical Examiner’s office.

About 8:35 p.m., Donato’s vehicle slammed into the rear of the truck’s trailer and he was pinned in the wreckage until emergency workers came to extricate him. However, Donato’s death was confirmed upon their arrival due to critical injuries sustained in the car accident, the report said.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash to determine its cause and any contributing factors, but at this point there are no other vehicles involved.

SANTA YSABEL: Justin Michael Cook, 20, Killed in Crash with Truch on SR-76

Monday, September 17th, 2012

SANTA YSABEL, California – Driver Justin Michael Cook, 20, of Escondido was killed Friday afternoon after his car crashed with a semi tractor trailer truck at the intersection of State Route 76 and State Route 79, according to a press release issued by the San Diego Medical Examiner.

According to the report, Cook was traveling eastbound on State Route 76 when he came to a stop where it meets State Route 79 – both two-lane roadways.  As he attempted to make a left-hand turn onto SR-79 in the direction of Warner Springs, the driver of the semi truck crashed into his vehicle on the driver’s side about 1:15 p.m.

Paramedics arriving at the scene of the crash pronounced him dead at the scene. The driver of the truck was not injured in the crash.

San Diego Wrongful Death and Liability in a Fatal Car Accident

The roadway where this traffic collision took place is a two-lane rural highway. Indeed Mr. Cook should have been able to see the large truck approaching before pulling out in front of it. However, the truck driver could have been speeding and Cook may have underestimated the rate of speed the truck driver was traveling.

However, it is also possible that the young driver attempted to race ahead of the truck driver. Another factor in the crash could have been if there were any mechanical problems with either the truck or the automobile that contributed to the crash.  Cook’s vehicle may have stalled as he entered the intersection due to poor maintenance or faulty products used in the vehicle.

Police investigating the fatal traffic accident will take measurements and interview witnesses in an effort to determine whether either driver was at fault for this crash. If a motorist is speeding and causes a crash involving death they can be held civilly liable and possibly face criminal charges for their actions.
