Manisha Patel‚ 39‚ was killed in a fatal Ventura County solo car accident that occurred on October 18‚ 2010‚ around 5:30 p.m. in Newbury Park. According to California Highway Patrol officer Miguel Duarte‚ this fatal car accident occurred at Highway 101 at Rancho Conejo Boulevard‚ approximately 150 miles from San Diego.
Duarte said that Patel failed to negotiate a curve‚ struck a light pole‚ and then crashed into the center divider. Authorities pronounced Patel dead at the accident scene. According to the autopsy report‚ Patel died from multiple blunt-force injuries. Authorities are trying to determine exact cause of this solo car accident as Patel was driving alone in her vehicle at that time.
Patel was on her way to pick up her children from school. This means that the road and turns were not new to her. Then how could she not negotiate a turn that she took every day? There are several questions whose answers the investigating authorities this car accident need to find out if there was any mechanical failure? Were bad road conditions a contributing factor? Were any other vehicles involved in this accident? If it is found that bad condition of the road or any mechanical failure lead to this car accident‚ then Patel’s family might be eligible for a legal compensation for the loss suffered.
Patel’s family is advised to consult an experienced Ventura County car accident lawyer who could help them obtain a fair compensation to cover the cost of funeral‚ loss of future earnings of the deceased‚ loss of love and companionship and other accident related damages.
We offer our sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Patel for such a devastating loss.
