Morongo Valley: Amelia Miller and Niccole Holly Killed in Head-On Collision
Posted on Jun 19, 2013
Shortly before 10 p.m. on Sunday, June 16, 23-year-old Amelia Miller, a servicewoman with the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, and 31-year-old Niccole Holly, of Palm Desert, were killed in a head-on collision in Morongo Valley. The crash occurred on Twentynine Palms Highway at Northstar Trail. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene. The accident is under investigation.
“When a motor vehicle collision results in a fatality, the family of the victim may file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party in order to be compensated for their loss,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Throughout San Bernardino County, 180 people were killed and 11,050 were injured in motor vehicle accidents in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Across California, traffic fatalities increased 2.6 percent, from 2,720 in 2010 to 2,791 in 2011.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of Amelia Miller and Niccole Holly, the two women who were killed in the head-on collision.
