Victorville, CA (September 7, 2019) – A woman was killed in a head-on crash that occurred on Thursday, September 5th. The crash took place on Hook Boulevard around 2:00 p.m. near Brentwood Elementary School.
According to reports, 40-year-old Felipe Guzman was driving a 2005 Jeep Cherokee eastbound on Hook Boulevard when, for unknown reasons, his vehicle veered into the westbound lanes. While in the westbound lane, the Jeep collided head-on with a gold Lexus sedan. The female driver of the Lexus was pinned inside her vehicle. Rescue workers were able to extricate her and she was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. Officials later identified the female victim as 48-year-old Laura Garcia. Guzman was also transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
An investigation into the cause of the accident is ongoing at this time. No further details are available.
Our condolences go out to the family of Laura Garcia.
California experienced more than 3,600 car accident deaths in 2017. This number makes our state one of the most dangerous in the nation for drivers. Head-on crashes are particularly dangerous accidents and tend to cause catastrophic and even fatal outcomes. A head-on crash must be closely investigated to determine the cause, but these accidents frequently occur due to reckless driving, distracted drivers, and impairment.
If you have lost a loved one in a California car accident, you may have legal rights on behalf of your deceased loved one. Under California law, you may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim against the other driver. California wrongful death claims are complicated and should only be handled by an experienced California wrongful death lawyer who can help you obtain various types of compensation to help you ease the financial burdens that you are facing at this time.
