The accident happened around 10:40 a.m. on the westbound side of State Route 54. A Honda Accord and a medical transport van collided for unknown reasons, sending the van plowing into a nearby big rig. The impact with the big rig caused the van to veer across all lanes of the highway, overturning into the center divider.
The van’s driver and three passengers were all injured in the accident and were rushed to local hospitals. One passenger, identified as Thomas Castaneda, was rushed to a hospital, but sadly succumbed to his injuries and died the next day. The van bore the logo of St. Pauls PACE, a program for the elderly. Debris from the crash was scattered across lanes, including a wheelchair. The investigation is ongoing at this time to determine cause and liability.
“Police will gather evidence and conduct interviews with the drivers and witnesses to determine liability” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm. “Any injured party involved in an accident will have a bodily injury claim against the negligent driver who caused the accident.”
