Velasquez was a passenger in one of the cars involved at the time. She was immediately taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, where she later succumbed to her injuries.
It was not specified in the report if any other parties were hurt in the wreck. Fontana police are investigating the incident.
We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of Ms. Eva Velasquez during such a difficult time.
There are several questions that need to be resolved in order to determine the liability in this deadly crash. Was any of the drivers involved under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was there negligence or recklessness on the part of the motorists? We are hopeful that authorities will continue to gather more information and evidence to verify the cause of this tragedy.
If the investigation proves that a negligent party has disregarded the safety of others and has led to the death of Ms. Eva Velasquez, it is likely that her family may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault individual. The surviving family will be entitled to a compensation for all the financial burdens such as medical expenses and funeral costs, and the pain and suffering for losing their loved one.
