$2.7M negotiated in wrongful death suit

A devastating car fire occurred on Interstate 15 in San Bernardino, California, killing our client’s 43-year-old husband and father.

Our client’s father was heading home from work. The client’s father was headed north on Interstate 15, which has a posted speed limit of 70 mph.

The defendant took his eyes off the road for at least 12 seconds and crashed into the plaintiff’s father’s Honda Accord at 55 mph without making any attempt to avoid the crash.

A CHP officer determined that the defendant was using his cell phone when the collision occurred.

The defendant admitted in the video of the crash, that for 12 seconds leading up to it, he was in the same lane as the crash occurred. The defendant also admitted that in those 12 seconds, there was plenty of time for him to pull into the lane to his immediate right.

Multiple agencies responded to the horrific scene, including the California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino Highway Patrol – Inland Division Air Operations, United States Forest Service personnel, San Bernardino County Fire Department, San Bernardino County Fire, Cal Fire, Cal Fire – Prevention Division, San Bernardino County Sheriff Department/Coroner Division. A member of San Bernardino County Fire pronounced the death of the driver in the Honda at 1:20 pm.
