Around noon on Sunday, April 23, 2017, a single vehicle rolled over on Oceanside Boulevard in California. Witnesses called the Oceanside Police Department, who sent officers out to respond to the accident. When police officers arrived, they discovered the truck in the westbound lanes of Oceanside Blvd.
According to witness statements and the evidence present at the scene, the Toyota Tacoma truck was traveling eastbound on Oceanside Blvd. For a reason not yet determined, the driver lost control of the truck, over-corrected for the mistake, and hit the median in the center of the road. After striking the median, the truck rolled and landed in the middle of the westbound lanes of Oceanside Blvd.
According to news reports, the driver of the truck was identified as Adam Robey, 35-years-old. He escaped with minor injuries and was released after a brief hospital visit. The female passenger in the Tacoma, who was five months’ pregnant, was found partially ejected out of the passenger window. She was unconscious with a head injury. The passenger—35-year-old Carey Disanto of Oceanside—was flown to Scripps La Jolly. Her baby was delivered and immediately flown to Rady Children’s Hospital. Tragically, a few days later, Disanto succumbed to her injuries and passed away, and her baby girl passed away shortly after.
No charges have been filed against the driver, although Oceanside Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team is continuing its investigation into this wrongful death accident. If the driver of the Tacoma was negligent and his negligence caused the fatal accident, it is possible that the family of Disanto could file a wrongful death lawsuit. Disanto’s family would need to speak with a California wrongful death attorney to discuss the specific facts of the case and determine whether it would be possible to seek compensation for their daughter’s and granddaughter’s deaths.
