The San Bernardino County Coroner's office announced that a 21-year old transient was hit by a vehicle alongside Interstate 10 in Colton the other morning.
The victim died at the scene. Apparently, this was the second death that took place along the freeway in Colton last week.
California Highway Patrol officers are investigating to determine the reasons for these two deaths.
Depending on the results of the investigation, the family of this young victim would be well-advised to contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to discuss their legal rights regarding the loss of their loved one. They may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit and be compensated for their expenses and pain and suffering.
