A 64-year-old man died in a single vehicle crash that took place on May 18, 2012, around 7:25 a.m. at the 3800 block of Philadelphia Street in Chino. According to the San Bernardino County coroner, the man was traveling east on Philadelphia when he lost control of the car, struck the right shoulder, and then a street sign.
Police and firefighters responding to this accident found the man unresponsive in his car. The victim sustained fatal injuries and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment where he was later pronounced dead.
The investigating officers need to determine whether the loss of control was due to negligence or any vehicular malfunction.
The victim’s family members may file a wrongful death claim in California against the manufacturer to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of love, care, and companionship, and other related damages if a vehicle defect or malfunction caused this fatal collision.
Our law office sends sincere condolences to the victim’s family and friends.
