Three men from Coachella were killed in the early morning hours Saturday when their car slammed into a tree. A fourth man survived and was recovering at a local hospital after an alcohol related accident takes the lives of three men, none of whom was older than 21.
Riverside County Sheriff's officials indicate that the vehicle was involved in a solo crash, the cause of which is unknown. The vehicle was thought to be traveling at a high rate of speed when the driver appears to have lost control of the car and it struck a large palm tree.
Eric Ceballos, age 20, Orlando Diarte also 20 and Michael Garcia, age 21 were all killed in the accident. Gracia was said to be the driver of the car and the survivor's name was not released by authorities.
This was a tragic and likely avoidable accident which took the lives of three young men and left a fourth in the hospital. My sympathies go out to the families and friends of those lost. No amount of money can ever bring back these young men. However, the law entitles injured persons and the families of injured or deceased to collect money for their pain and suffering as well as for any out of pocket expenses that they may suffer as a result of wrongful acts of others.
Often these expenses are paid by large insurance companies that insure policy holders for cars or homes or businesses. Sometimes, the payments can be made by wrongdoers themselves and sometimes the money comes from specific state funds for victims of crimes.
