Female Motorist Killed in Mojave Desert Rear-End Traffic Collision

59-year-old Juanita Mullin was killed in a rear-end crash that occurred on May 7, 2012, around 10:46 a.m. along Interstate 15 (I-15) deep in the Mojave Desert. According to San Bernardino County coroner’s officials and California Highway Patrol officers, a 67-year-old trucker driving a 2008 International momentarily diverted his attention by looking inside his cab and slammed into the car, causing the Impala to overturn and the big-rig to run off the freeway and end up in an embankment.

At the time, Mullin was either stopped or driving extremely slow with the vehicle’s emergency flashers on. From the present facts, it is clear that the truck driver’s negligent driving contributed to this fatal California motor vehicle crash. At this time, the victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Bernardino County car accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.

If it is found that the truck driver was distracted, then the victim’s family may be entitled to compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of anticipated earnings, loss of love, care, and companionship, and other accident-related damages.

Our law office sends a sincere condolence to the victim’s family members and friends.
