A passenger in the Hyundai, 95-year-old Lincoln resident Jutta Nuich-Pickthall, was rushed to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek where she died. The driver of the Hyundai was also hospitalized and was listed in stable condition.
Meanwhile, CHP added that two people in the Cadillac were taken to Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch with injuries considered as minor. The motorist in the Honda was unharmed.
The incident remains under investigation.
We offer our sincerest thoughts and prayers to the family members and friends of Ms. Jutta Nuich-Pickthall whose life was taken in this tragedy and also remain with the injured parties at this time.
There are several questions that need to be resolved in order to determine the liability in this deadly crash. Was any driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Were the parties involved following traffic signals in the area? Was there negligence or recklessness on the part of the motorists? Authorities are still investigating the cause of the tragedy, and we are hoping that soon enough justice will be given to the victims and their families.
Most deadly accidents are preventable for as long as people obey and practice road safety measures and traffic regulations. If a negligent party has disregarded the safety of others and has led to the death or injury of a family member, it is likely you may have the right to a wrongful death or a personal injury lawsuit. We know that an injury or loss of significant other can never be replaced by any monetary amount, however, we believe that the victims and their families must be aware of their legal rights.
