Kevin Birse, 22, was killed in a San Diego car accident when his vehicle veered off the roadway and rolled over the night of March 23, 2011. According to a news report in The San Diego Union-Tribune, the fatal car accident occurred on San Vicente Road in Ramona. Birse’s Toyota Tundra went off the roadway near Arena Drive and overturned. Birse sustained fatal injuries in the crash. Investigators are trying to determine what caused this fatal injury accident.
My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Kevin Birse. My thoughts and prayers are with them following this tragic rollover accident.
San Diego Car Accident Statistics
According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 90 people were killed and 2,252 were injured as a result of car accidents in unincorporated areas of San Diego County. During that same year, there were 246 fatalities and 13,527 injuries due to car accidents in San Diego County.
What Caused This Car Accident?
Based on this news report, it is not quite clear how or why this rollover accident occurred. There are several unanswered questions here. Was there an auto defect or mechanical malfunction in Birse’s pickup truck? Was there a design flaw, which may have caused the truck to roll over? Was there a dangerous roadway condition, which may have caused Birse to lose control of the vehicle? Were there any other vehicles involved? For example, did Birse get cut off by another driver or run off the roadway by another vehicle? I trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine precisely what caused this fatal crash.
If a vehicle defect is determined to have been responsible for this accident, the auto maker could be held liable for the victim’s wrongful death. If a dangerous roadway condition caused or contributed to the accident, then, the governmental entity responsible for maintaining that roadway could be held liable. Under California Government Code Section 911.2, any personal injury or wrongful death claim against a public entity must be filed within six months of the incident.
