Fatal Car Accidents at Rancho Santa Fe Road and Calle Barcelona

A fatal car accident occurred in Carlsbad at the intersection of Rancho Santa Fe Road and Calle Barcelona on February 24, 2014. The driver of a Buick sedan apparently ran a red light and smashed into a Ford Mustang. Multiple witnesses reported that the Buick sedan was driving at a very high rate of speed. This intersection has been the scene of several fatal car accidents.

Witnesses at the scene attempted to no avail to save the life of the driver of the Mustang. The driver of the Buick sedan was transported to nearby Scripps La Jolla Hospital with serious injuries.

The family of the deceased driver is undoubtedly grieving and asking how did this happen. They will also be confronted with financial uncertainty associated with such a loss.

In wrongful death traffic accidents many sources may provide financial relief to the heirs of the deceased. The other driver's automobile liability insurance policy is one source. The deceased's own auto insurance policy may have medical payment benefits which will be available to defray funeral expenses and uncovered medical expenses regardless of fault. Further the deceased's uninsured motorist policy may be available if the policy limit is in excess of the other driver's liability policy limit. This is one very important reason to carry uninsured motorist coverage with policy limits of not less than $500,000.00 per person.

In this case, the intersection should be carefully examined. Given the number of fatal accidents at this site there may be a dangerous condition in existence. If there is a dangerous condition the City, County or State may also be responsible. In cases involving a governmental entity, within 6 months of the accident, the victim or their heirs MUST file and serve upon the correct agency a claim. Failure to properly file such a claim will result in a complete loss of the right to seek damages from the government.
