When people are travelling on roadways, accidents can sometimes take them by surprise. For a group of people driving on a freeway, this surprising accident turned into four wrongful death accidents. A blown tire from an SUV caused severe personal injury for the people involved, eventually ending in their deaths. These sad casualties were totally unexpected, just like in most accidents. Families of the victims are grieving during this greatly sad time.

On Sunday night, August 12, a tire from an SUV vehicle blew out. While this type of incident would normally involve the vehicle pulling to the side of the road and calling AAA or getting the spare tire, this event took a turn for the worse. Once the tire popped on the large vehicle, the driver lost control of the car, sparking the heartbreaking event around 7 p.m.

The seemingly simple incident of a popped tired quickly turned dramatic. On the 134 Freeway, the driver lost control which caused the SUV Ford Explorer to roll then plunge of the roadway and crash into Eagle Rock which was the street below. Four people were killed while two others in the vehicle were injured.

Heading eastbound, the Ford Explorer was in the far left lane when it hit a bit of raised asphalt in the curb. The car was already experiencing tire problems; debris was seen coming from the automobile before in rolled and plummeted. After hitting the raised asphalt, the car rolled twice and fell through the space between the bridges. They fell about 75 to 100 feet below the freeway. The event happened about 35 feet onto North Figueroa Street.

Three people were pronounced dead on the scene. These victims were a six-year old girl, a man in his 40s, and a female in her 30s. The six-year old was ejected from the vehicle and officials are saying that she may not have been wearing a seatbelt. A fourth man, who was 56-years old, died from his injuries overnight at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena. When the accident occurred, the 56-year old man was brought to the hospital along with a 36-year old woman who had been in critical condition at the night of the crash.

California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the scene of the accident. They closed off a large part of the freeway and took much of the night to look through the scene. Two of the lanes were reopened at 9:20 p.m. on Sunday evening but the rest of the lanes were reopened at 2 a.m. early Monday morning.

The officials are saying that the blown tire was a possible cause of the crash. However, there was alcohol found at the scene which is raising suspicion on whether that may also have been a factor.

These types of car accidents are so shocking. The families and loved ones of the victims must be grieving over the wrongful deaths that took place. If you have been involved in an accident, consult with a Los Angeles personal injury attorney to see which steps you should take next.


Two Drunk Drivers Crash into Construction Crew, Killing Two Men


Two drunk drivers collided with each other then crashed into a construction crew on the northbound 405 Freeway on Sunday, July 22. Because two negligent drivers decided to take control of the wheel though they were intoxicated, two wrongful death accidents resulted. Now, families of the two victims must cope with their lost relatives and find sense during this inexplicable mess.

Two road workers were killed when the vehicles collided into their construction site. Ramon Lopez, 56, and Ricardo Zamora, 58, were identified in the coroner’s office as two victims in this horrible accident. A third worker was also part of the accident. He was rushed to Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center and treated for moderate injuries.

Yocio Jonathan Gomez, 23, was driving a blue Ford Explorer when he rear ended Stephen Christopher Caserta, 43, who was driving a black SUV Lexus RX-350. Apparently, Caserta was slowing down when he saw the construction zone but Gomez kept going and accidentally rear-ended Caserta. This caused the Lexus to lose control and spin into the construction zone, striking the workers. Gomez’s car had overturned after the collision. The crash happened in the middle of the night at about 3:35 a.m.

The paramedics immediately arrived on the scene to help both drivers. At the hospital, both Gomez and Caserta were arrested on suspicion that that were driving under the influence. Medical statuses of the two drivers have not been released yet. However, the two men will be charged with DUIs and have a possible charge of involuntary manslaughter because of the deaths of two construction workers.

The 405 north remained closed until 2 p.m. at the South Bay Curve. An investigation team were surveying the wrecks and looking over the scene to verify the facts of the incident. There were only two lanes open on the 405 near the Artesia Boulevard off ramp as a result of the accident. Traffic was backed up for hours.

Ramon Lopez’s daughter, Maureen Lopez, spoke up about her father’s wrongful death accident. She spoke of her father’s great characteristics and how he was always taking care of his family. The words of Lopez’s daughter should remind drivers out on the road to be responsible and careful. Driving while intoxicated is against the law and very irresponsible. Because of the action of two negligent men, the lives of two male workers were taken. Families are grieving for the loss of their loved ones. There was no reason for anyone to be killed that day.

If you have lost a relative to a wrongful death accident, contact a Los Angeles personal injury attorney to file a claim. Do not let the negligent party get away with their crime. Hire a lawyer and fight for justice.
