At about 3:20 p.m. on Monday, July 1, 51-year-old Kevin Allen Sr. was killed and three people were seriously injured in a head-on crash in Hinkley. While traveling westbound on Highway 58 in a 2013 Nissan Rogue, Allen entered the eastbound lane in an attempt to pass traffic and collided with a 2008 Honda Civic. The impact caused the Nissan to overturn and the Honda to spin out. Allen was declared dead at the scene about an hour after the accident. Emergency responders airlifted the 38-year-old female passenger of the Nissan and the 41-year-old driver of the Honda and his 44-year-old female passenger to area hospitals to receive treatment for major trauma.
“When a motorist’s negligence causes a serious accident, he or she may be held liable for the expense of the victims’ recoveries,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis. “The families of those who did not survive the accident may file wrongful death claims against the motorist in order to be compensated for their losses.”
Throughout San Bernardino County, 180 people were killed and 11,050 were injured in motor vehicle collisions in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, driving on the wrong side of the rode was a primary collision factor in 167 fatal and 5,499 injury accidents in the state, while improper passing was a primary collision factor in 18 fatal and 945 injury crashes.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Kevin Allen Sr., the man who was killed in the head-on crash. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the three people who were seriously injured.
