Massive car accident involving tour bus leaves 4 dead, 26 injured

A horrific crash near the border between California and Arizona has left four people dead and more than 20 injured after a tour bus collided with a big rig and two other vehicles. Official reports show that the car accident occurred during the early morning hours on May 21, when a semi-truck carrying a load of metal pipes lost control and jackknifed into the median on the 10 Freeway. The crash occurred at about 2 a.m., and the highway was closed until about 6:30 p.m., according to official reports.

Workplace wrongful death incident claims life on bridge

A California construction worker is dead after falling from a bridge over the 91 Freeway on May 18. The man reportedly fell during the early morning hours as he was participating in demolition activities. Official reports show that the preventable death occurred when a portion of the railroad bridge buckled from beneath the 59-year-old victim. The accident caused traffic to be obstructed in both directions on that road for several hours in the Riverside area.

Widow of Walker driver seeks wrongful death damages from Porsche

Famous actor Paul Walker and his friend died in a fiery wreck in November 2013. Now, the other man's wife is seeking financial compensation from Porsche, claiming that design flaws in his vehicle caused the pair to perish in the tragic crash. The woman is seeking compensation through a wrongful death suit against the high-end automaker. The victim in this case was reportedly a trained race car driver who would have known how to handle such a powerful vehicle; the Porsche model is designed to reach speeds of more than 200 mph.

Motorcycle accident kills off-duty cop in Corona

An off-duty police officer in California was killed while he was riding his motorcycle on May 1 on Highway 91 in Corona. The motorcycle accident occurred when a sedan clipped the man's Harley-Davidson while changing lanes on that road. The 30-year-old victim had been with the San Bernadino Police Department for eight years, and he became a motorcycle officer just a few months ago.

Wrongful death suit could include congresswoman, debate ongoing

Family members of a 27-year-old woman who was struck by a legislator's aide in December are pursuing legal action against the politician's office. Official reports show that the relatives are attempting to link California Rep. Lois Capps to the accident, as it appears that her staffer was working for her in an official capacity on the night that he struck the victim and then fled the scene of the crime. If that is true, then the federal government could be held liable in the wrongful death case, as could the driver and the congresswoman herself.
