The 34-year-old mother of five was killed in a car accident. She is suspected to have been drinking and driving. She was a single mom, on her way to pick up her boyfriend when she crashed. The California Highway Patrol said alcohol was a factor in the collision, which was uncharacteristic for her. Family members say she was going through bouts of depression. Her children are spreading the message to not drive drunk, since it killed their mother. “Don’t do it. It hurts, to lose someone, like that,” they said. The hardest part is not having a mother to come home to, they also said.
According to news reports, their mother’s boyfriend is still in a coma. An account was established in the family’s name at a local credit union to benefit her children. As a Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney, my heart goes out to all the children and I hope the community helps out during these difficult times. If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident, the benefit of having a car accident lawyer Los Angeles on your side is immense.
