Shortly before 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 26, 54-year-old Michael Sabb, of Buena Park, was killed in a collision in Hayward. While traveling westbound on Industrial Boulevard in a dark blue Nissan, Sabb collided with a blue Mustang at Hesperian Boulevard, one of the city’s busiest intersections. Sabb was declared dead at the scene. Neither occupant of the Mustang was hurt in the accident. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“When an accident results in the death of a vehicle occupant, the family of the victim may hold the negligent driver liable for their loss through the wrongful death claims process,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
