20-year-old Dominic Penney of Spring Valley was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident that occurred on December 3, 2011, around 9:40 p.m. on the intersection of Sweetwater Road and Blossom Lane. According to the county Medical Examiner’s Office and California Highway Patrol, Penney was walking across the road when he was struck by a southbound black Ford Mustang.
Penney sustained life-threatening head injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. From the present information, it is unclear what caused this major car accident that claimed one life.
Since it was a pedestrian accident, the motorist’s negligence or reckless driving could have been responsible for causing the accident. If it is found that the driver was speeding or driving inattentively, then he may be held liable for this accident.
Meanwhile, Penney’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County pedestrian accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights. This lawyer may also help deceased’s family obtain compensation to cover funereal and burial cost, loss of anticipated earnings, loss of love, care and compassion, and other accident-related damages.
Our San Diego personal injury law office sends sincere condolences to the victims’ family and friends.
