One Person Killed In Vernon Car Accident On Route 365

VERNON, CALIFORNIA (July 19, 2023) – One person has tragically died in a Vernon car accident along Route 365 not far away from 19th Street.

Vernon police officials are saying that the accident took place around 8:35 a.m. on Monday. A car and a vehicle were involved in a collision under unclear circumstances.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victims. Sadly, one person died due to the severe nature of their injuries.

A full investigation by the New York State Police remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Vernon Car Accidents

Speeding remains one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2021, speeding was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities.” There are a number of other factors that could contribute to car accidents.

  • Distracted driving
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions

Drivers must exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. When a driver fails to exercise due care, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. The family of any person that died in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a wrongful death claim. It is important that evidence is properly preserved after any collision.
