A car related accident in the Huntington Beach area resulted in the death of a 17-year-old boy. The incident occurred Friday afternoon when the teen fell off the roof of a moving automobile. The vehicle, a 2006 Nissan Altima, was being driven by a friend of his who was also 17. The two had been traveling eastbound on Brannen Drive when the car turned right to head southbound onto Wildrose and deposited the boy onto the ground. Victim, Christopher Hernandez II suffered severe head trauma and abdominal injuries. He was taken to the UCI Medical Center in Orange County, but was pronounced dead at 2:50 p.m. today.
While many car accidents are cut in dry when it comes to ascertaining fault, others, like the above scenario, can be a bit more complicated. For instance—why was the boy on top of the car? Was it a stunt gone bad? Was the teen coerced? Was there more than the two teens involved?
If for any reason the parents of the deceased boy discover someone else was the cause of their sons demise they could sue the guilty party for wrongful death.
