An 18-year-old Fontana woman is killed when driver runs red light

An 18-year-old Fontana woman was struck and killed in a fatal two-car accident on Friday evening, July 21, 2017.

San Bernadino Sheriff's Department dispatch first began receiving calls about the crash shortly before 9 p.m. They soon responded to the accident scene at the intersection of Randall and Citrus Avenues. 

According to witness statements taken at the scene of the crash, the young decedent had been riding in the front seat of a friend's 2001 Toyota Corolla as they traveled in the southbound direction along Citrus Avenue at around 8:44 p.m. Driving in the westbound direction along Randall Avenue at the same time was another driver. That person was operating a 2014 Chrysler 300.

It's alleged that the motorist driving the Chrysler 300 did not have the right of way and proceeded through the intersection on a red light. In doing so, that individual struck the driver's side of the Toyota Corolla.

First responders with the San Bernardino Coroner's Office reported that the woman appeared to have suffered head trauma in the crash. She was initially transported to Fontana's Kaiser Foundation Hospital, where, by 9:18 p.m., she had died. As for the other motorists, it's unclear as to whether the drivers of the Chrysler 300 and the Toyota Corolla, suffered any injuries in the crash. The Fontana Police Department continues to investigate precisely what occurred.

Hundreds if not thousands of motorists are injured or lose their lives in car crashes caused by another party running a red light, driving drunk or otherwise being negligent each year. In reviewing your case with a San Bernardino car accident attorney, he or she can advise you of your rights to compensation for your medical or funeral bills, lost wages, and other expenses.
