Border Patrol Chase Leads to San Diego Car Crash

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on May 13, 2009 - Comments off

Two San Diego County border patrol agents became suspicious of a silver 1995 Ford Taurus on May 13, 2009, around 9:30 a.m., when they saw the vehicle take northbound Sunrise Highway, a route traversed often by migrant smugglers trying to evade the Border Patrol checkpoint on westbound Interstate 8 near the junction with the highway.
Border Patrol agent Jerry Conlin reports that they tried to pull the sedan over near Pine Valley but the driver sped off instead. They pursued the Taurus for only a short while before they deemed the speed too fast for road conditions, though the exact speed of the vehicle was not known. The agents finally found the Taurus about four miles north of where it was originally spotted, and saw that the car had crashed into a tree. Two men inside were seriously injured and required helicopter evacuations to San Diego hospitals, and a third was taken to a hospital via ambulance. There has been no word on their conditions nor their immigration status. You can read more about this San Diego car accident in this SignOnSanDiego.com story.

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on April 9, 2009 - Comments off

Los Angeles Angels rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart was one of three people killed in an early morning hit and run car accident earlier today. Investigating police officers suspect alcohol to be involved.
The car crash occurred after the Angels’ game yesterday in nearby Fullerton, California. Adenhart was a passenger in a silver Mitsubishi Eclipse that was broadsided, or “T-Boned”, at an intersection by a minivan that allegedly ran a red light. Both vehicles spun in the intersection and one struck another vehicle. You can read more in this ABCnews.com story.

The minivan driver fled the scene of the auto accident on foot but was captured thirty minutes later. He has been identified as Andrew Gallo, 22, of Riverside. Gallo was driving on a suspended license for a prior drunk driving conviction. Tests of Gallo’s blood-alcohol content indicate that it was above the legal limit at the time of the accident. It is likely that he will face vehicular manslaughter or murder charges for his role in the accident.
Two others involved in the accident, a 27-year-old man in the Mitsubishi Eclipse and 20-year-old Courtney Frances Stewart of Diamond Bar, were pronounced dead at the scene. Adenhart died during a last surgical attempt at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center.
