Nevada Truck Accident Kills Two San Diego Teachers

By Ross Jurewitz on June 14, 2011

While driving thrSan Diego Teachersough Nevada‚ two long-time San Diego coaches were killed when a Nevada Department of Transportation truck crashed into their SUV on June 13‚ 2011. Police say Esther Garza and Renee Upchurch were on their way to Utah and pulled over on the side of the road near Reno when they were struck.

Upchurch was pronounced dead at the scene. Garza was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment‚ where she died from her injuriesa few hours later. Now the investigating officers need to determine what made the truck crash into the victims’ parkedcar.

If it is found during the initial investigation that the truck driver was driving recklessly or distracted‚ then the Department may be held liable for victims’ wrongful deaths. The victims’ family members should seek counsel from a San Diego car accident lawyer who is familiar with Nevada laws and can inform them about their legal rights and options.

The victims’ family members may be eligible to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial expenses‚ loss of earnings‚ loss of love and companionship‚ and other accident-related damages. Wrongful death claims have strict regulations and must be made within a certain time period.

Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who loved Garza and Upchurch for such a sudden and disturbing loss.
