Can you believe it's been almost a month since a 47-year old Ontario man driving a Mercedes drove into a coned-offconstruction zone and hit an earth-moving machine on the San Bernardino Freeway? His actions killed a 20-year old woman and injured five other people.
According to California Highway Patrol, the 47-year old man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and vehicular manslaughter. It seems the freeway's two right-hand lanes were marked for construction when the driver veered into them, hitting a stationary machine and worker on it.
The worker was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries. The Mercedes had six people in it; five were hospitalized with minor to major injuries. One 20-year old woman died from injuries sustained.
I hope the family will contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who can investigate the details of this accident and determine if compensation for their loss is available to them.
