Driver Killed in Imperial Beach Rollover Car Accident | Injury Lawyer San Diego

By Ross Jurewitz on August 10, 2009

Date:  August 6‚ 2009

Location:  1200 block of 11th Street‚ Imperial Beach‚ California

Type:  Rollover car accident

Outcome:  Driver killed

John Kirk Colgan‚ Jr. was killed on August 6 around 10:00 p.m. when his Toyota pickup truck struck several parked cars and overturned after it blew a tire.  Mr. Colgan was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from his vehicle during the car crash.  Although the cause of the car crash is under investigation‚ outside factors are likely at play‚ such as alcohol‚ cellular phone usage‚ or texting which would have distracted Mr. Colgan or affected his ability to drive his truck.

He is survived by his wife and son‚ both of whom live in Imperial Beach.  Our prayers go out to them.

Unfortunately‚ this is another tragic example why we must always wear seat belts when riding in a vehicle.  While there is no way to know for sure‚ the survival rates for people involved in car accidents increase tremendously when seat belts are used.
