Shortly after 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 26th, 22-year-old Alyssa Fantozzi was killed in a collision involving a semi truck in Castro Valley. The accident left Fantozzi’s car-one of two vehicles that collided with the semi-pinned underneath the truck. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The second driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital, explains a California injury lawyer.
Statewide, 3,113 fatal and 170,496 injury traffic collisions occurred in 2008, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Annual Report of Fatal and Injury Motor Vehicle Traffic Collisions.
