Man, 30, Tragically Dies in Accident on Birthday
SUN VALLEY (September 20, 2017)- According to KTLA 5 News, Isaac Sabbah, 30, has been identified as the man who tragically sustained fatal injuries following a collision Friday, September 15th, on the I-5 freeway transition to southbound 170.
Authorities reported the crash had taken place at around 3:10 a.m. between a Honda CRV, a Honda Accord or Civic, and a Los Angeles Sheriffs patrol vehicle.
Per KTLA 5 News, Isaac Sabbah was the driver of the Honda Accord who struck the Honda CRV which was stalled in the middle of the carpool lane forcing Sabbah’s vehicle into traffic lanes directly into the path of the patrol vehicle with two deputies inside.
Sabbah’s vehicle quickly burst into flames tragically causing fatal injuries to the 30-year-old man whose birthday also happened to be on Friday, the same day he sadly passed away.
No reports were provided regarding the condition of the CRV driver or the two deputies who likely were injured to some extent following the crash.
Meanwhile, KTLA 5 News showed a flyer made in memory of Isaac Sabbah highlighting that he will be remembered as a “beloved husband, a loving father, and friend to all.”
Sabbah’s family has set up a GoFundMe for help with Sabbah’s burial and his family’s future expenses.
The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Isaac Sabbah and all family and friends during such difficult times.
Los Angeles Wrongful Death Lawyer
Based on this news report, liability still remains unclear as there are still several unanswered questions here. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Did the stalled driver have his/her hazard lights on to identify to other drivers that the vehicle was malfunctioning? Was the driver negligent in any other way? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor- family members of the deceased victim, as well as those who suffer injury, may be entitled to a wrongful death lawsuit or personal injury claim against the at-fault parties seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, pain and suffering, lost future income and loss of love and companionship.
