Car Accident at Oleander Avenue and Compton Boulevard Proves Fatal
According to NBC News, one person died after a collision on Monday evening, June 11. The crash occurred near Oleander Avenue and Compton Boulevard in Compton. Reportedly, a Lexus SUV crashed into the back of a flatbed truck, and the exact reason is still under investigation. Officials who reported on the accident have stated that the driver of the SUV died from a fatal blow due to the impact of the crash. The name of the driver who died is being withheld until loved ones can be notified.
It is still unclear if the truck was parked or moving at the time of the crash, but the driver of the truck was apparently unharmed. An investigation into whether or not the driver was moving is still being conducted.
Fatal Crash May Have Been Caused by a Street Race
Further investigation revealed that a third motorist may have possibly been involved in the crash. According to witnesses, there was a vehicle that appeared to be racing the SUV just before the collision. A more detailed investigation is currently ongoing. Nevertheless, we have nothing but sympathy for the deceased driver and all those who have been affected by this tragic accident.
If the crash was caused by a race, and the other driver fled the scene, that person may be held on felony hit-and-run charges for their role in the accident. The family members of the victim, in this case, may very well be able to file a wrongful death claim against the negligent party, although that choice will be entirely up to them to decide. No matter the results of the investigation, the victims’ loved ones will likely be seeking help in order to cover the immense expenses that follow this kind of tragedy.
