Torem & Associates

FRESNO, CA – Rashad Al-Hakim, a junior at Hoover High School, was killed in a crash on October 4 and Lisa Spoors, 39, has been charged with murder in connection with the incident by the Fresno County District Attorney’s office. According to a press release from the Fresno County District Attorney’s office, Spoors hit Al-Hakim before leaving the area and coming back 20 minutes later. There was captured video of the sobriety test conducted on Spoors the night of the incident.

We broke that news to Ragina Bell, Rashad Al-Hakim’s mother Thursday, and she said, “it’s not fair (Spoors) gets to spend the holidays with (their) family when I can’t spend them with my son.” She added that Spoors should turn themself in right away.

Wrongful Death Lawyer In California

In the United States, approximately 6,000 pedestrians die in traffic-related incidents each year. California accounts for 15 percent of these fatalities. Though our lawmakers have consistently tried to protect pedestrians, they are still victims on a daily basis. Distracted, impaired, and reckless drivers frequently hit pedestrians. Even though we try to keep other motorists safe on the road, we cannot predict whether other motorists will see us.

Accidents involving vehicles can result in serious injuries. Pedestrians are not protected from the force of vehicles, so their chances of being injured are greater in accidents. It is hard to lose a loved one, but it is even more difficult when the loss is caused by an accident that could have been prevented. In cases in which pedestrians die in preventable accidents, California wrongful death attorneys can provide legal guidance.
