According to a news release, the crash took place on US-95 at approximately 1:38 a.m. in the early morning hours of August 5.

Reports from the Nevada Highway Patrol state that the driver of the Dodge, only identified as a male individual, was thrown from his vehicle. The truck then caught fire after coming to a final stop on its roof in the middle of the roadway, blocking all lanes of traffic for some time. 

The Kia also came to a final stop on its side. Its driver was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash and was identified as Zoraida Rios, 37, of Winnemucca. 

The other driver was transported to Humboldt General Hospital for treatment. His current medical condition has not been disclosed at the present time. 

It was reported by police that intoxication may have played a factor in the wreck. 

No other information has been released regarding the circumstances of the crash at this time.

California Pedestrian Crashes

El Cajon CA - Fatal Pedestrian Crash on Jamancha Rd Takes One LifeCalifornia pedestrian accidents are unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence. Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable travelers on the road at any given time. California, with its year-round warm weather and high population, has the highest pedestrian fatality rates in the nation. On average, the Golden State sees approximately 800 fatal pedestrian crashes per year.

Regrettably, a large percentage of these collisions are caused by intoxication, and about 60% of these accidents occur after sunset. The most common reason for pedestrian collisions to occur in California is speeding, followed by intoxication and improper turning. These are all forms of driver negligence, which is the nation’s leading cause for motor vehicle collisions.

Oftentimes, injured traffic accident victims are faced with debilitating pain that has a lasting, negative impact on their emotional and physical well-being. This pain can be exacerbated when they are under the impression that their injuries were caused by another person’s negligence. Depending on the severity of the collision, an injured accident victim and their family could be faced with towering medical bills and various damages and losses.

Las Vegas, NV (August 06, 2020) – Local law enforcement officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department as well as emergency response teams were requested at the site of a car accident that took place on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 5th at around 3:50 p.m. at the intersection of Sun City Boulevard and Button Willow Drive.

The emergency dispatch logs offer minimal information but suggest that the collision, the cause of which has yet to be established, involved at least two vehicles,. 

Reports claiming that victims were injured during the impact are still contingent on police verification. First responders, however, did respond to the accident scene and would have given a medical evaluation to anyone involved in the crash and ensured that the relevant medical treatment or transportation was administered to any injured victims.  

The identities and post-accident medical conditions of those involved have not been made known. It is also unclear at this time if anyone who took part in the incident was issued a traffic citation.

Due to the fact that this incident is still under the professional inquiry of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in an attempt to establish cause and liability, no additional details have been made readily available.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Las Vegas, NV (August 06, 2020) – Police officers stated that two 16-year-old girls were killed when they were struck by a car in a DUI accident while they were crossing a street inside of a marked crosswalk in Las Vegas on Monday, August 3rd.

The accident took place at about 7:00 p.m. on Katie Avenue, between Maryland Parkway and Twain Avenue. Reports indicate that multiple vehicles were stopped, waiting for the stoplight at the intersection.

The coroner from Clark County has since identified the two young victims as Las Vegas, NV - DUI Hits and Kills Two Teens on Katie Ave, both 16-year-old residents of Las Vegas. The coroner listed the cause of death for both girls as blunt force trauma. 

Both fatalities have been ruled accidents, in this case meaning simply that they were not premeditated. 

According to attending law enforcement officers, Ebone Whitaker, 38, was driving a car when it veered off the roadway at the intersection and then ran over the curb.

Her vehicle then crashed into a traffic sign that was posted on the sidewalk and continued going, striking the two teenagers who were in the crosswalk. Whitaker’s car continued traveling forward until it collided with a tree and the pole to a traffic light in the intersection’s southwest corner.

Two vehicles that were in the area were both struck by a tree that was felled as a result of the crash. 

The driver was transported via ambulance to an area hospital with injuries that were listed as critical. Police say that, at this time, the driver was displaying obvious indications of impairment and an eyewitness to the incident described the woman as being “out of it.”

One of the girls was pronounced dead at the scene. The other was taken to Sunrise Hospital where she later died from her injuries. 

Police reports state that a detective from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department met with Whitaker, who had also been taken to Sunrise hospital following the incident.  She was read her Miranda rights and promptly confessed to drinking two beers and then consuming marijuana, heroin, crystal meth, and PCP before she got behind the wheel. 

The report also goes on to mention that Whitaker has absolutely no memory of the fatal accident.

She was ultimately charged with two counts of reckless driving resulting in death, two counts of driving under the influence resulting in death, failing to maintain her lane, failing to decrease speed or use due care, and an improper lane change.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victims, Ms. Nelly Amaya-Ramirez and Ms. Citiali Mora, at this time.

Winnemucca, NV (August 06, 2020) – A 37-year-old resident of Winnemucca was killed in the early morning hours of Wednesday, August 5th in an accident that took place on U.S. 95, roughly five miles north of the city of Winnemucca.

Officers from the Nevada Highway Patrol reported that at around 1:35 a.m., a silver-and-black Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up truck was traveling southbound along U.S. 95 when it swerved across the centerline and collided with a white KIA Optima that was heading north. As the left front portions of both vehicles crashed into one another, the pick-up truck flipped over, rolling right over the top of the KIA.

The driver of the Dodge, a young male, was not wearing his seat belt which allowed him to be thrown from his vehicle. The truck finally came to a stop upside down and blocking traffic in either direction. It was at this point that it burst into flames.

The KIA finally stopped on its wheels. The driver, Zoraida Rios, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The Dodge’s driver was transported via ambulance to Humboldt General Hospital. His current medical condition is not known.

Crash investigators with the Nevada Highway Patrol have said they suspect alcohol is a contributing factor in this fatal accident. An investigation is currently underway.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Zoraida Rios, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.

El Cajon, CA (August 06, 2020) – An elderly man died after he was hit by a passing car on the night of Wednesday, August 5th.

According to a report taken by officers from the San Diego Police Department, the fatal pedestrian collision took place at around 11:30 p.m. when the victim was attempting to make his way across the intersection of Main Street and Jamacha Road.

Emergency medical personnel were also dispatched to the scene of the accident after 911 operator dispatch received a call stating that a man had been struck by a northbound pick-up truck that was driving along Jamacha Road.

Local law enforcement reported to the crash site where they discovered the 80-year-old man lying in the roadway. One of his legs had been severed during the impact. He was also in respiratory arrest and non-responsive.

Emergency medical personnel transported the victim to a nearby trauma center where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead a short while later.

The motorist who hit the victim pulled over immediately after the accident and has been cooperative with law enforcement officers so far, who do not believe that drugs or alcohol played any role in the incident whatsoever.

No further information pertaining to this accident has been disclosed, as it is still under investigation for cause and liability by officers from the San Diego Police Department. It does not appear as though any arrests have been made at this time.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in El Cajon

El Cajon, CA - Pedestrian Fatally Struck on Main St

Pedestrian-involved car accidents are a major safety issue in the state of California. Based on studies conducted under the supervision of the California Department of Public Health, the state produces an estimated 13,000 pedestrians who suffer from crash-related injuries every year. Regrettably, anytime a pedestrian becomes involved in a car accident, the most probable outcome is the pedestrian being forced to endure critical injuries.

The loss of a loved one is always a distressing, heartbreaking experience but when someone you love was taken from you in an avoidable accident that was the result of the negligent or reckless actions of another driver, the devastation and emotional trauma cut much deeper.

As crash investigators from the California Highway Patrol are still working to determine cause and liability for this collision, no additional details are currently available

Morongo Valley, CA (August 06, 2020) – A car accident at the intersection of Sundown Trail and Highway 62 caused critical injuries to at least one victim in the early morning hours of Thursday, August 6th.

Based on incident logs maintained by state law enforcement emergency dispatch operators, officers from the California Highway Patrol were notified via phone call of the two-vehicle collision, which took place at about 12:25 a.m.

An official with the California Highway Patrol stated that a vehicle of undetermined make and model and a Kia Sorento collided with one another in the Morongo Valley intersection for reasons that have yet to be determined. 

Initial police reports noted that the force of the impact caused one of the vehicles involved in the accident to end up more than 150 feet from the roadway.

Local fire and rescue crews and emergency medical personnel both reported to the site of the collision and rendered vital medical aid to one of the occupants of the Kia who had sustained serious injuries during the crash.

First responders transported the injured victim, who was complaining of back pain, to a nearby medical facility for continued medical care. The identities and medical conditions of those involved in this incident have not yet been released to the public.

In the meantime, crash investigators with the California Highway Patrol initially recorded the accident as a hit-and-run. At this time, however, that information remains unsubstantiated. 

The professional inquiry into cause and liability for this crash is still underway by local law enforcement.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Chico, CA (August 06, 2020) – An elderly woman who was using a walker was hit by a car and killed in a pedestrian accident on the morning of Thursday, August 5th in the city of Chico.

The accident was brought to the attention of local law enforcement at around 7:30 a.m. According to officers from the Chico Police Department, the incident took place on Idyllwild Circle between Yosemite Drive and Goldeneye Court. 

Police officers cordoned off Idyllwild Circle in order to facilitate victim rescue efforts and road clean-up. 

The man driving the errant vehicle told crash investigators that as he was heading southbound along Yosemite Drive, the sun shone directly in his eyes, momentarily blinding him. It was then that he struck the elderly pedestrian as he attempted to make a righthand turn off of Idyllwild Circle.

The victim sustained serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to officials, the driver of the vehicle pulled over immediately following the accident and has fully cooperated with police and crash investigators so far.

This accident remains under professional inquiry by officers from the Chico Police Department.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Legislators from the state of California are endeavoring to underscore the importance of pedestrian safety.  As reported by the Division of Highway Traffic Safety, California has the highest rate of vehicle collisions involving pedestrians than any other state on the nation. 

Young children, the aging population, and people who do not speak English are the three demographics who are at the highest risk of sustaining a critical injury or being killed in a pedestrian-involved accident. 

The loss of a loved one is always a distressing, heartbreaking experience but when someone you love was taken from you in an avoidable accident that was the result of the negligent or reckless actions of another driver, the devastation and emotional trauma cut much deeper.

Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Bakersfield

Drivers whose concentration is on something other than their surroundings often fail to notice pedestrians entirely, causing preventable deaths all across the United States. 

Drivers who are otherwise engaged, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or who disregard the speed limit also frequently fail to see road signs and traffic warnings as well as stoplights. They are also much less likely to be aware of other roadway features such as crosswalks, one-way streets, and driveways. 

The loss of a loved one is always a distressing, heartbreaking experience but when someone you love was taken from you in an avoidable accident that was the result of the negligent or reckless actions of another driver, the devastation and emotional trauma cut much deeper.
