Widow sues fire truck driver for fatal crash

On Nov. 23, it was reported that a California widow filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles County and the driver of a fire truck who allegedly caused the fatal accident that killed her husband. The accident occurred on July 31 at about 5 p.m. as the widow and her 36-year-old husband were heading to a rehearsal dinner for a wedding.

The collision took place as the passenger vehicle was attempting to make a left turn on Mulholland Highway in Agoura Hills. The lawsuit alleged that the driver of the fire truck was driving too fast and unsafely passing vehicles when he collided with the passenger car. The widow reportedly watched her husband die in the accident and continues to suffer from emotional distress due to the incident.

At the time the collision occurred, the fire truck was carrying 13 inmates from a fire camp in Malibu. It was not stated if any other injuries were suffered in the crash. The widow and the deceased man's mother are seeking unspecified damages for wrongful death and negligence.

Car accidents can leave the victims involved with serious injuries. In worst-case scenarios, a loved one may even die in the crash. If this happens and it was determined that the other driver was responsible for the collision, surviving family members may file a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver. If the driver was on the clock when he or she caused the accident, the employer may also be held accountable. A personal injury attorney may help the surviving family seek compensation for their losses, including any medical costs and income that was lost due to the death.
