1 Killed, 2 Injured in 15 Freeway Crash
MIRA MESA, San Diego County (February 4, 2018) – Drew Alexander Alford, 19, of Menifee has been identified as the man was killed in a fatal traffic accident Sunday afternoon on the Interstate 15 Freeway, according to CBS News.
Alford was an occupant of a vehicle that was traveling southbound in the HOV lanes of the 15 Freeway near Mira Mesa Boulevard. The vehicle’s driver allegedly lost control and stuck the center divider. Next, the vehicle reportedly swerved to the right and then back to into the center divider. It eventually came to a stop just north of the Mira Mesa Boulevard exit. The man was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene, just after 3 p.m.
There were three people involved in the collision including two others who were rescued and taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla for treatment of unspecified injuries.
Investigators continue to look into several factors in order to determine the exact cause of the incident.
San Diego Accident Investigation
An investigation into a collision involving a fatality can certainly be complicated. Police will determine what happened based on the facts and witness statements.
If a negligent driver caused a collision that left you with injuries or the loss of a loved one, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim even if there is some fault on both sides.
It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim even when they know their insured is at fault. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed. This is unacceptable.
