Victims in Fiery I-5 Crash Appear to Have Been Related
In an update to the recent SUV rollover accident in Mission Veijo that produced five fatalities, the victims have been identified and appear to have been related. Among them were three female children and 2 adults who were confirmed to live in San Pedro. The tragic SUV accident occurred this past Tuesday after a Chevrolet Tracker blew a tir, weaved across lanes of traffic then tumbled down a steep embankment on the southbound I-5 freeway at La Paz Road. Authorities are still awaiting dental record to officially confirm the deceased, but gleaned who the car belonged to by the vehicles registration. The SUV was also taken to a forensics lab to determine the cause of the wreck. One of the things they will look for is mechanical failure.
It is almost impossible not to feel a tug on the heartstrings when one hears of such a tragedy, especially when kids are involved. The surviving family members will also be left to mourn not one death but five. If investigators determine that a mechanical failure occurred because of a defective auto design, they would be more than well within their rights to pursue litigation against the automaker.
