California police cleared scene of recent deadly car accident

Police will often need to close off a section of road in order to perform their investigative duties into a car accident. While the road is closed, police will measure any skid marks, review the resting position of the cars, as well as record numerous other pieces of evidence in order to figure out exactly what happened. In a recent fatal car accident at a California intersection, police have just reopened the road after they cleared the scene.

Police responded to the report of a two car accident in the early morning hours. When they arrived on scene, they found that a pickup truck and a car had been involved in a collision at an intersection. Police have stated that at this time they are unsure which vehicle was responsible for running the red light that was directing traffic at the intersection.

As a result of the crash, the 28-year-old driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger of the car, also identified as being 28-years-old, was transported to an area hospital to be treated. Hospital officials have stated that the injuries suffered by the passenger are not considered to be life-threatening.

California police have stated that they believe alcohol played a role in the car accident. As a result, the driver of the truck was taken into custody. It is unclear what charges the driver faces at this time. However, when he is brought before a judge, further evidence may be released that could provide a basis for the victim's family to bring a wrongful death suit against the driver if it is determined that the truck driver played a significant role in causing the crash.
