Antioch, CA (June 1, 2021) – A fatal car accident claimed the life of one person and injured four others on a roadway in Antioch on Tuesday, May 25. At approximately 12:30 p.m., officials responded to a call concerning the wreck on Somersville Road. 

Sources indicate that the incident took place on Somersville Road near State Route 4 when authorities were assisting a driver who was stranded. Police noticed a speeding vehicle while they were working to assist the stranded driver. 

The vehicle reportedly approached the intersection of Delta Fair Boulevard, veered into oncoming traffic, and became involved in a head-on crash with another car headed south on Somersville. The impact of the wreck forced the first car into another vehicle also heading south on Somersville. 

Reports indicate that four people sustained injuries in the multi-car collision, while another one lost their life at the scene. Officers with the Antioch Police Department identified the injured as one 22-year-old woman, one 40-year-old man, a 56-year-old woman, and a 78-year-old man, all of Antioch. 

The decedent was identified as a female, aged 68, who was a passenger in one of the three involved vehicles. The names of the victims have not been released to the public at this time. 

Police continue to investigate. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased at this time. Our thoughts are with those injured in hopes of a full recovery. 

Auto Collisions near Stockton

The Golden State sees approximately 650 traffic accidents occur per day, injuring thousands of people and causing approximately 3,200 deaths per year. Fatal California traffic accidents occur more often than fatal traffic accidents in nearly any other state in the nation. These collisions are constantly changing the lives of injured victims and their family members and imposing lasting impacts upon everyone affected by them. Negligent actions performed while driving such as speeding, intoxication, and distraction can endanger the lives of not only the negligent driver but also everyone else they encounter on the road at any given time. 

When lives are lost due to negligent driver errors, family members are often left to deal with not only the painful loss of their loved one, but also perhaps outstanding medical bills, funeral costs, and other costs associated with their family member’s accident. In worst-case scenarios, families lose an important source of income along with losing their loved one, which can impose even further financial burdening upon them. If you have recently lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person, contact a California wrongful death attorney. An attorney will be able to assist you with moving forward from your recent accident aftermath by informing you of your legal right toward compensation.
