52-year-old Linda Dingman was killed in a tragic car accident that occurred on December 21, 2011, around 6:38 p.m. along Hwy. 247 near Encelia Drive. According to sheriff’s officials, Dingman was hit by a Chevy Yukon driven by 33-year-old Carla McChristian. The victim was wearing dark clothing, which may have been a factor in the crash.
Dingman suffered life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. From the present information, it appears that a possible negligent driving and irresponsible actions of the motorist led to this serious car wreck that claimed one life.
If the motorist is determined to have been at fault in this case, then he could be held responsible for pedestrian’s wrongful death. While the investigation is in process, the victim’s family members should consult with an experienced San Bernardino County pedestrian accident lawyer who would help them obtain timely compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of future earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other accident-related damages.
Our personal injury law office sends sincere condolences to Dingman’s family members and friends.
