Mother and daughter killed in a crash

Two lives were taken recently by a hit-and-run driver in Victorville.

A 34-year old mother, her 11-year old daughter, and 8-year old son, were driving along Highway 395 the other afternoon when a pickup truck turned left directly in front of them. The woman lost control of her vehicle, causing her to crash into a telephone pole.

The mother and daughter suffered fatal injuries and the son was airlifted to a nearby trauma center. The pickup truck driver fled the scene, but was later arrested by police for suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and hit-and-run causing death and injury.

According to California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a), "Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is illegal. Drivers whose act of driving under the influence results in the death of another will likely face vehicular manslaughter charges." In addition, he violated California Vehicle Code Section 20001(a) for leaving the scene of an accident without stopping.

If you or a family member is injured or killed due to the negligent acts of another driver, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will make sure the at-fault driver is held responsible for the victim's wrongful death and injuries.
