Long Beach, CA – Passenger Killed in High Speed Crash on Shoreline Dr

Long Beach, CA (October 22, 2019) – A violent one-car crash caused by a suspected drunk driver left one passenger deceased in Long Beach on Sunday morning, October 20th. The accident happened along Shoreline Drive at approximately 3:35 a.m., according to police.

Authorities stated that the male driver of a 2019 Infinity Q50S lost control of the vehicle on the stretch of road that leads to the NB 710 Freeway. The speeding vehicle ultimately struck a tree and split in half due to the impact. The passenger was ejected from the car during the collision.

Police officers accompanied medical crews at the scene and both victims were transported to a nearby hospital. The passenger, who has not been identified, succumbed to his injuries the following day. The driver, identified only as a 35-year-old man from New York, was injured but police have not reported on his current condition.

The accident is under investigation.

We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.

Fatal Car Accidents in California

Whenever high speeds are involved, collisions tend to result in catastrophic and even fatal injuries. Research has recently found that over 3,000 California car accidents resulted in fatalities in 2017, alone. Many more ended with minor to serious injuries, and although there are various reasons why a sudden crash may occur, it is important to understand that you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering.

The enormously high costs of hospital bills and physical recovery, which generally stack up alongside lost wages, many people will choose to file a claim. We believe that anyone who has driven a vehicle in a seriously negligent manner, causing the injuries or death of someone else, should be held liable for their behavior.
