HESPERIA, California (June 3, 2015) — Howard Shackelford, 70, of Hesperia was killed Tuesday afternoon when his pickup truck was rear-ended by another driver in a pickup truck at the intersection of I Avenue and Mojave Street, according to a press release by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner.

The crash was reported at 12:56 p.m. Mr. Shackelford’s gold 1993 Chevrolet pickup truck was heading southbound on I Avenue when he stopped at the intersection. A pedestrian came up to Shackelford’s car to speak to him and was leaning on the window opening. The second driver, a 33-year-old Victorville man in a red Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, failed to stop and slammed into the back of the man’s pickup truck.

Paramedics transported Shackelford to Desert Regional Hospital, but he died of his injuries at 2:17 p.m. the same day.

The pedestrian suffered a cut on his arm and was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton as a precaution, the Press Enterprise reported.

The fatal car accident is under investigation by The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Major Accident Investigation Team Division.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
