Car Crashes into a Stalled Vehicle, Killing the Driver

Disasters lurk anywhere, literally, and there are times, when it may add insult to injury. A car crashed into the center divider of the Pomona Freeway at Atlantic Boulevard when another car slams into the disabled vehicle killing its 22-year-old driver.

The motorist was driving a 1991 Acura when he hit his car into the center median for unknown reasons. A witness of the car crash immediately attended to the disabled vehicle and called the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to report the incident. However, just after a few seconds, another car crashed into the stalled vehicle that fatally injured the Acura driver.

According to CHP, the Acura’s driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other car says that he did not notice the stalled car.

When a driver crashes his or her car, it is an enough reason to worry. However, if another car hits his or her stalled vehicle, the story turns from bad to worst. No matter how careful a road user is, he or she may face a lot danger if others do not take extra caution.

Wrongful death from a vehicle accident always results to grief and emotional pains, which is why there is a law that aims to recompense the suffering of the affected party. Pursuant to tort law, an individual who inflicts harm to another because of negligence should provide compensations for the loss and damage to the person affected.
