Date and time of Injury 05/01/2018 0730
Summary The decedent was a 35-year-old female who resided with her family in Spring Valley. On the morning hours of 05/01/2018, the decedent was the restrained driver, and one of three occupants, of a Kia Sportage SUV traveling westbound on SR-94 just west of Kenwood Drive. While traveling, another vehicle also traveling westbound veered into the lane within a short distance to the front of the decedent's vehicle. In an apparent attempt to avoid collision, the decedent veered off of the left side of the highway and into the adjacent grass area. It then appeared that the decedent over-compensated and turned back towards the highway lanes. Upon reaching the paved highway the vehicle flipped over an unknown amount of times, eventually coming to rest in the grass area between westbound and eastbound lanes on the driver's side with the bottom of the vehicle against the middle jersey barrier. A witness to the incident called 911 and paramedics and police were dispatched to the scene. Upon arrival of paramedics, the decedent's death was confirmed due to fatal injuries.
