Christina Tristan Victim in Mojave Fatal Car and Truck Accident
MOJAVE (June 7, 2018) – The alleged hit-and-run driver who killed a woman in a traffic collision at Highway 14 and Highway 58 in October last year has been identified, according to Bakersfield Now.
California Highway Patrol said 45-year-old Kuldeep Singh was operating a semi-truck when the crash took place on October 27 last year. He is from Fresno.
As per the article, CHP affirmed that 41-year-old Boron resident Christina Tristan was driving a 2007 Honda Accord north on Highway 14 when she collided with a big rig.
Fatal Crash on Highway 14 and Highway 58 in Mojave
The Honda overturned onto a dirt center median, continued across Highway 14, and then rolled down a 100-foot embankment. Tristan died at the scene.
Meanwhile, Singh did not stop to render aid and fled the area. He was booked into jail on suspicion of hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter.
The incident which took place around 5 p.m. on northbound Highway 14 at Highway 58, remains under investigation.

In this case, it is evident that Mr. Kuldeep Singh will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of the other driver involved. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and is punishable by law, especially if the incident tragically killed another individual.
The surviving family of Ms. Christina Tristan will have then the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party who has evidently neglected the safety of others on the road. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.
