“Leaving Oceanside. See you soon.” This was the last text sent by Christopher Allen Isaacs to his girlfriend, Jennifer Gonzalez, before his untimely wrongful death. Around 5 pm on Friday, April 7, near the Santa Fe Drive exit in Encinitas, Isaacs, just 24 years old, was killed by the unknown driver of a silver Toyota.
According to NBC San Diego, Isaacs had been riding his 1995 Harley-Davidson motorcycle in between two lanes when the Toyota driver switched lanes directly in front of him. After Isaacs’ motorcycle collided with the Toyota, his body was tossed underneath an 18-wheeler. He died from his injuries at the scene.
The tractor-trailer driver, a man from Montebello, was not charged in the motorcycle accident wrongful death. The California Highway Patrol officers are still looking for the driver of the silver Toyota, who fled immediately after the accident.
If the Toyota driver is found and the driver’s negligence caused the death of Isaacs, Isaacs’ family will have the right to seek compensation through a California wrongful death claim. The victim’s family would need to hire a California wrongful death lawyer to determine what types of claims exist and to represent them in pursuing those claims in court. If no responsible party is found, we hope there is a valid uninsured motorist policy to help with the extensive wrongful death damages.
