BAKERSFIELD, California (May 7, 2014) – Joan Zeek, 79, has died of injuries sustained in a collision with a suspected DUI driver on April 23 at the intersection of Calloway Drive and Marby Grange Way, according to a report by Bakersfield Now.
Keith Majusiak, 30, was driving his company’s locksmith van when he allegedly ran through a red traffic light and crashed into Zeek’s Toyota sedan.
Zeek was transported to Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center, but she died Tuesday night, according to the Kern County Coroner’s Office.
“This tragedy was completely preventable,” said Bakersfield Car Accident Attorney James Johnson. “Drivers under the influence of alcohol have no business behind the wheel of a car and the fact that this man was working at the time of the crash makes the act even more reprehensible. The locksmith company may also be held jointly liable for this woman’s wrongful death.”
