Shortly after 4 p.m. on Friday, February 7, 2014, 75-year-old Sylvia Miguel, of Las Vegas, was killed in a crash near Baker, reported the Desert Dispatch. While traveling on Interstate 15, the driver of a 2004 Chevy Suburban lost control of the vehicle south of Zzyzx Road, causing it to overturn in the desert. Miguel, a passenger, was ejected from the Chevy. Emergency responders pronounced her dead at the scene. The driver and another passenger sustained minor injuries. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the accident; however, officers do not believe that drugs or alcohol were contributing factors. 


In 2011, the most recent year for which accident data is available, 190 people were killed and another 10,602 were injured in motor vehicle collisions that occurred in San Bernardino County, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. Passengers accounted for 53 of those who were killed and 3,869 of those who were injured. The OTS ranked San Bernardino 38th out of 58 counties for its incidence of fatal and injury accidents in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.


After a fatal collision, the family of the victim may file a wrongful death claim in order to hold the at-fault driver liable for their loss. For more information on the wrongful death claims process, please call 866-981-5596 or contact us online.


All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Sylvia Miguel.
