Joseph Testone, Jr., who was the passenger in a Maserati involved in a Long Beach car accident on Friday, unfortunately died from his injuries from this accident. According to NBC News, Testone, who was a resident of Idaho, was pronounced dead at the scene of the impact.
The driver of the Maserati, who is a man from Long Beach, aged 54, suffered very serious injuries in the accident and has been listed in critical condition in the hospital. The accident apparently occurred when the driver, who was possibly going too fast, lost control of the Maserati and crashed into a tree, which cut the vehicle completely into two. The driver was ejected from the vehicle.
Both occupants of the vehicle were wearing seatbelts and the driver had a valid license according to Long Beach police. It is however a possibility that alcohol or drugs played a part in causing this Long Beach wrongful death accident.
From a legal point of view, the family of Mr. Testone should hire a Long Beach personal injury lawyer to assist them with recovering wrongful death damages, including from the insurance company for the driver and/or owner of the Maserati. The driver also may have significant personal assets that may be able to be obtained in a wrongful death lawsuit.
