Teenager Killed In Escondido Solo Car Accident

An unidentified 18-year-old woman was killed in a fatal Escondido solo car accident that occurred on April 12‚ 2011‚ on the Interstate 15 in Escondido in North San Diego County. According to the responding California Highway Patrol Officers‚ the victim was going at an estimated speed of 70-75 mph when her vehicle collided with the center divider near Felicita Road and struck the side of a concrete barrier due to unknown reasons.

The investigating officers are working to determine what made the victim drive her vehicle into the center divider. If it is found that she lost control or was not able to apply brakes due to a mechanical failure‚ then the manufacturer of her vehicle might be held liable for her wrongful death by selling a dangerous product. On the other hand if an poorly designed road or debris on the roadway is found to be cause of this auto accident‚ the authorities in charge of maintaining the road may be held responsible for her death.

The victim’s family members should consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer in San Diego to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial expenses‚ loss of financial support‚ loss of love and companionship‚ and any other accident related losses.

Our law office offers our sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the victim for their loss. Losing a young adult at the outset of her life is always tragic.
