Shortly before 9 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 39-year-old Edward Travis Rust, of Camarillo, was killed in a rollover accident in Rancho Cucamonga. While traveling eastbound on Interstate 210, the driver of a 2003 Jeep Liberty lost control of the vehicle, colliding with the south shoulder of the road before rolling over multiple times. Rust was declared dead at the scene. The CHP is investigating the crash.
“When a passenger is fatally injured in a collision, his or her family may pursue a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis.
Rancho Cucamonga accounted for 1 of the 59 fatalities and 236 of the 4,056 injuries suffered by passengers in crashes that occurred in San Bernardino County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Throughout California, traffic collisions claimed the lives of 2,720 people that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Edward Travis Rust, the passenger who was killed in the rollover accident.
