Victorville: Passenger Alejandra Gomez Killed in Crash on Interstate 15
Posted on Oct 15, 2012
Shortly before 10 p.m. on Friday, October 12, 18-year-old Alejandra Gomez was killed in a crash on Interstate 15 in Victorville. While negotiating the curving Palmdale Road on-ramp to the southbound freeway entrance, the driver of a 2004 Silver Toyota Corolla lost control and collided with a vehicle and a semi truck. Paramedics pronounced Gomez, a passenger in the Toyota, dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
“When a passenger is fatally injured in a collision, his or her family may hold the at-fault party liable for their loss by filing a wrongful death claim,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis.
Victorville accounted for 3 of the 59 fatalities and 172 of the 4,056 injuries suffered by passengers in crashes that occurred throughout San Bernardino County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Large trucks were involved in 24 of the fatal and 425 of the injury collisions that occurred in the state that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Alejandra Gomez, the passenger who was killed in the crash on Interstate 15.
