An unidentified 21-year-old Marine was struck and killed in a tragic car accident that occurred on April 3‚ 2011 around 12:35 a.m. near Camp Pendleton in North San Diego County. According to California Highway Patrol Officers‚ the victim along with a fellow Marine were crossing the northbound onramp to Interstate 5 near Harbor Drive when he was struck by a 2009 Nissan Altima.
The victim was pronounced dead at the accident scene. Now it becomes the responsibility of the investigating officers to cite the at-fault car driver and bring him to justice. Did the driver ignore safety of traffic rules? Was he driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs so that he did not notice two men walking? If it is found that the car driver was driving recklessly or was distracted‚ then he might be held liable for victim’s wrongful death.
If the other Marine also suffered injuries in this serious car accident then he will be eligible to obtain compensation to cover for medical treatment‚ hospitalization costs‚ and pain and suffering.
The victim’s family members should consult with an experienced car accident lawyer in San Diego County to obtain compensation to pay for the cost of funeral and burial‚ loss of earnings‚ and loss of love and companionship. Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the victim for their loss.
