Violet Campbell Killed in Livermore Car Accident; Lauren Davis Arrested
LIVERMORE (November 29, 2017) – On November 22, Wednesday, 16-year-old Violet Campbell was killed, and another woman was seriously injured in a traffic collision on Stanley Boulevard.
According to the Patch, Campbell and 25-year-old Alexys Garcia were both passengers in the Kia Sorento driven by 26-year-old Lauren Davis at the time of the incident.
At approximately 11:45, the night before Thanksgiving, the solo-involved Sorento left the road and overturned several times. The vehicle came to a rest on the first set of railroad tracks, just west of Isabel Avenue.
A female passenger, later identified as Campbell, was found by first responders partially ejected from the vehicle. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Furthermore, reports indicated that Garcia was thrown out of the window when the Sorento flipped and she was found by emergency crews in the bushes near railroad tracks. Garcia was rushed to Eden Medical Center, where she reportedly remains unconscious since the accident. As per the article, doctors have put her into a medically-induced coma and they are unsure whether Garcia will make a full recovery.
Two other passengers in the Sorento suffered minor injuries in the crash, officials said.
Meanwhile, authorities mentioned that Davis was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and felony drunk driving following the accident. However, it is expected that Davis, of Livermore, will be released from Santa Rita Jail in Dublin because the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office wants more information before considering filing charges against her for the fatal crash.
Further investigation on the incident is ongoing at this time.
We offer our warmest of thoughts and prayers to the involved parties and their families during such a difficult time.
