Deputy accidentally rear-ends a vehicle

A San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputy, taking a prisoner to a Juvenile Detention Center, accidentally rear-ended a vehicle. That vehicle swerved and hit a third vehicle.

A 38-year old passenger in the vehicle that was hit by the deputy suffered fatal injuries. She died shortly after. The driver and a young passenger sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to local hospitals for treatment. The driver of the third vehicle, along with the deputy and his or her prisoner sustained minor injuries.

According to reports, the deputy, by rear-ending the vehicle, triggered a chain-reaction collision. The accident is under investigation to determine what caused the deputy to crash into the vehicle. Was he or she distracted? If the investigation shows that the deputy was at fault, he or she and employer can be held liable for the wrongful death.

It would be wise for the family of the victims to contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to investigate their case and make sure their legal rights are protected.
