Santa Barbara County Solo Car Wreck Kills Motorist

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on August 30, 2011 - Comments off

52-year-old Karl Mark Fields was killed in a serious solo vehicle wreck that occurred on August 21, 2011, around 11:30 p.m. on Highway 101 (US-101) south of Santa Claus Lane in Carpinteria. According to California Highway Patrol Officers, Fields was driving north about half a mile south of Santa Claus Lane in the fast lane when he drifted off the road and into the dirt median.
Fields made an attempt to overcorrect, but lost control of the vehicle and hit several trees and fence along the left side of the road. The impact of the collision was so strong that the vehicle spun several times and finally rested on its roof.
Fields suffered life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the accident scene. From the available information, it is not clear what made Fields drift off the road and hit trees and fence along the road. Now the investigating officers need to determine whether loss of control contributed to this crash or if Fields was driving negligently.
Regardless of what caused this fatal car wreck, Fields’ family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced Santa Barbara County car accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights and options. The deceased’s family members can obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of love, and other accident-related damages.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all know who knew and loved Fields for such a heart-rendering loss.
