Evergreen, Colorado- Husband and Wife Killed in Violent Crash
California Highway Patrol officials report that the Mercedes had been headed southbound while the SUV had been traveling northbound before the Mercedes driver veered into the path of the SUV triggering a serious collision.
A total of four occupants were inside the SUV- Daniel Cooper, 81, and Autumn Cooper, 63 and two children ages 14 and 11. The husband and wife who were residents of Evergreen, Colorado, tragically died in the collision and were pronounced at the scene.
The two children also from Colorado were both injured. The 14-year-old girl sustained serious injuries and was rushed to Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks and remained in serious condition as of Friday morning. The boy was moderately injured and taken to Ventura County Medical Center. Both were also residents visiting from Evergreen, Colorado.
Meanwhile, the driver and sole occupant of the Mercedes, a 38-year-old Culver City man ID’ed as Scott Hart, was killed and was also pronounced at the scene.
No details have been released specifying what exactly occurred leading up to the wreck as California Highway Patrol authorities investigate.
This story will be updated once more details are released.
The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the elderly couple and grandchildren during such difficult times.
Based on this news report, it appears that the Mercedes driver will be held liable for this tragedy. There are still several unanswered questions here. Was the Mercedes driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Was he traveling over the speed limit or did distracted driving play a role? Was the Mercedes 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.
