Car Crashes into Bus Bench‚ Killing Mother and Injuring Boyfriend in City Heights

By Ross Jurewitz on June 9, 2011

City Heights Crash25-year-old Vanessa Shane was killed on June 4‚ 2011‚ after a car plowed into them in City Heights around 7:55 p.m.  According to San Diego police Officer David Stafford‚ Shane‚ her 4-year-old son Eli‚ and boyfriend David were sitting in a City Heights bus stop when 71-year-old San Diego resident Jean Chizer-Williams drove his car into them

Shane and her boyfriend David were immediately transported to Mercy Hospital for treatment‚ where she was later pronounced dead. David was treated for internal injuries and fractures to his feet and legs.  Eli was taken to Rady Children’s Hospital and suffered multiple injuries‚ including a broken arm.

From the available information‚ it is clear that female motorist’s negligent driving led to this fatal car accident that took one life. According to police‚ the 71-year-old driver has not been cited for the crash because she is diabetic and had low-blood sugar at the time of the accident.

The victims’ family members should immediately get in touch with an experienced auto accident lawyer in San Diego to learn about their legal rights and get the justice they deserve. Though the driver was in diabetic shock‚ she could have done more to prevent the crash that killed one and injured two others.

A pedestrian accident attorney would help the victims’ families obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial expenses‚ medical costs‚ loss of future earnings‚ and loss of love and companionship. Our law office offers heartfelt condolences to all those who knew and loved Shane for such an upsetting loss. We also pray that the injuries suffered by Eli and David heal soon.
