As a personal injury lawyer Newport Beach, I’m terribly desolate to learn that somebody was killed in an accident that could have been prevented. My heart and thoughts are with the family and closest friends of the victim. I’ve dealt with similar accidents in the past and I know how difficult it is for those who are left behind to cope with the pain of losing a loved one. I hope that the California Highway Patrol is investigating this accident in depth to identify the causes behind this occurrence. I encourage motorists to learn from this.
