Two women were killed due to a car accident in San Diego, according to local sources. The details surrounding the fatal car accident are still unclear at this time, but it has been confirmed that both occupants of the single vehicle involved were dead when they were found. California police are still trying to determine a cause for the crash, and will continue their investigation until an answer has been found.
According to the limited information available at this time, a crashed vehicle was discovered by hikers on April 28. The vehicle was badly damaged and contained the bodies of the driver and passenger. The driver was identified as a 31-year-old Acton resident, while the passenger was a 35-year-old real estate agent from Solana Beach.
Police are unsure at this time what caused the car to crash and for no one to notice it for some time. They have not ruled out driver error or intoxication as possible causes for the accident, but have not commented publicly on the likelihood of any of these potential causes. Their investigation remains underway as of this report.
When the cause of a fatal car accident is a mystery, it is up to California authorities to determine its cause. If they find evidence that the driver did, indeed, contribute materially to the accident leading to the deaths of herself and her passenger, the family of the deceased Solano Beach woman could choose to file suit against the driver’s estate. This would be handled as a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court.
