EL CAJON, California – A 22-year-old El Cajon man was killed and his female passenger seriously injured Sunday morning when the 1981 Jeep Wrangler they were traveling in crashed into a drainage ditch along La Cresta Road, according to a press release issued by the San Diego Medical Examiner’s office.

Daughter Witnesses Mother’s Death in Spring Valley Dry Cleaner Crash

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

The 20-year-old daughter of a Spring Valley woman who was killed this week witnessed her mother Pamela LeBlanc being struck by a car as they stepped out of the Casa De Oro Dry Cleaners on Campo Road and Bonita Street.

The trauma of the car crash is something LeBlanc’s daughter will likely never forget. As passersby worked feverishly to free her mother from under the Pontiac G6 that struck her, the daughter watched helplessly as her mother was whisked away to Sharp Memorial Hospital where she died about an hour later.

“Family members who witness a close relative such as a child or parent die in an accident will likely suffer ongoing emotional pain and suffering,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, a San Diego personal injury attorney. “This ultimately could affect the young woman’s ability to cope with the pressures of college or work in the future and ultimately her financial stability.”

The Supreme Court of California held in Dillon v. Legg 68 Cal. 2d 728 (1968) that a bystander such as a mother and her daughter who witnessed the injury of her other child in a car accident could sue for emotional distress as a result of witnessing the accident.  Initially, this case was dismissed by the trial court, but the Supreme Court held that a duty to a bystander could be established if a) the plaintiff was near the scene of the crash. b) the plaintiff’s witnessing of the crash led to emotional distress. c) the plaintiff was a close relation of the victim.

On the day of the Spring Valley crash, LeBlanc and her adult daughter were running errands and had just walked out of the dry cleaning business when the mother of two was struck by the driver of a Pontiac G6. The driver crashed into her and the store and landed on top of the woman. Good Samaritans who witnessed the crash including an employee from Sam’s Tune Up auto repair shop eventually freed her from underneath the Pontiac.

“This young lady no longer has the love of her mother or her support as a result of this car crash and it was not her fault,” Seegmiller said. “Her ability to move forward with her life and honor her mother’s memory will take time.”

SPRING VALLEY, California (SAN DIEGO COUNTY) — Pamela LeBlanc, 45, of Spring Valley was killed Monday morning after being struck by a driver who mistakenly hit the gas pedal instead of the brake in front of Casa De Oro Dry Cleaners at Campo Road and Bonita Street, according to a San Diego County Medical Examiner report and news reports on the incident.

According to the reports, LeBlanc was walking with her 20-year-old daughter through the doors of the dry cleaner when the driver of a Pontiac G6 crashed into her and the store and landed on top of her about 10:51 a.m. Good Samaritans who witnessed the crash including an employee from Sam’s Tune Up auto repair shop worked feverishly to free her from underneath the Pontiac.

After she was freed from underneath the vehicle she was transported by paramedics to Sharp Memorial Hospital where she was treated. Despite efforts to save her life, Miss LeBlanc died at 11:59 a.m., roughly an hour after her arrival at the medical facility, the coroner said.

“The doors to the dry cleaning facility open directly into the path of the drive-through passageway creating a dangerous condition,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Both the driver and the owner of the dry cleaning facility can be held liable to the victim’s family for this woman’s wrongful death.”

In a news report by ABC 10 News San Diego, the owner of the dry cleaning shop was quoted as saying he plans to redesign the dry cleaning facility’s drive-through so that an accident such as this one will never happen again.

San Diego, California Wrongful Death Law

Under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 377.60, the survivors of victims killed in a crash caused by a negligent driver may sue the responsible person for their wrongful death. The damages they can recover are meant to compensate the individual for their loss of everything from financial support, funeral expenses and medical costs to the pecuniary value of their companionship and loss of consortium, said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm.

“Although the loss of a loved one can be devastating on a family both emotionally and financially, the main reason our clients contact us is because they want to find justice for their family member whose death should never have happened,” Seegmiller said.

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.
