Shortly after 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 29th, a car accident in Fontana claimed the life of 11-year-old Noah Ferrer and three others. The crash occurred on Baseline Avenue near Cherry Avenue when a 35-year-old Rancho Cucamonga man in a sport utility vehicle collided with a sedan, the impact causing the SUV to become wrapped around a light pole. The man and his 39-year-old brother were pronounced dead at the scene; their 37-year-old brother died at a nearby hospital; and Ferrer succumbed to his injuries during surgery on Monday morning. Authorities are investigating the accident, explains a California personal injury lawyer.
Fontana accounted for 11 of the 192 fatalities and 644 of the 10,983 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents throughout San Bernardino County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, traffic fatalities in California decreased by 10.3 percent, from 3,434 to 3,081.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of Noah Ferrer and the three brothers who were killed in Fontana last night.
