Car accidents: four people die in Californian accident

While Christmas is fast approaching, the families of four Californian people have to plan their funerals. Car accidents are always tragic, but when it happens at such a festive time of year, it seems even more of a tragedy. The accident happened on a recent Sunday morning.

The crash occurred very soon after it was reported to authorities that a vehicle was traveling the wrong way on a freeway in the area. Reports of the accident indicate that this vehicle was traveling against traffic and crashed into another car with three occupants. All of the people involved in the accident passed away.

The single occupant of the vehicle traveling the wrong way and two ladies traveling in the second vehicle passed away at the accident scene. The female driver of the second vehicle was taken to a medical center in the area. Unfortunately, she died shortly after her arrival.

The accident led to a closure of all the eastbound lanes of the freeway until 7:40 a.m. Authorities are investigating possible causes of the accident and whether alcohol or drugs were involved. Officials are hoping that possible eyewitnesses will be able to provide more information.

Californian civil law allows the legal estate of the deceased victims of car accidents the choice to file wrongful death claims against an alleged negligent driver. The legal estate of the three ladies who passed away in the accident may decide to sue for financial damages against the legal estate of the negligent driver. Damages awarded may assist the family of the deceased to better cope with unexpected expenses, such as funeral and burial costs.
