Visalia Elder Abuse Lawyer John L. Rozier has the following accident report; On Thursday, September 18, 2014, a multiple vehicle collision took place in Tulare County. The six car pileup happened in Visalia, at about 4 PM.
A 44 year old Visalia woman was driving east on Avenue 280/Caldwell Avenue, near Shirk Road, in a Toyota Corolla. She was stopped with about four vehicles in front of her, attempting to make a left turn.
Brandon Lovenburg, 31 years old, was also eastbound on Caldwell Ave, in a 2005 Ford Excursion. Lovenburg failed to stop in time, and hit the back of the Toyota. The impact of the collision, pushed the Corolla into the oncoming lane of traffic, where it smashed into a westbound 2006 Pontiac G-6, driven by Lorena Torres, of Tulare.
After colliding with the Toyota, Lovenburg’s SUV then struck the back of a 2012 Ford Edge, driven by Benjamin Kiester, of Lemoore. This caused a chain reaction of crashes, with the Edge, hitting a 2007 Chevy Silverado, driven by Nathan Jaramilla, and the Silverado then ran into a 2008 Ford Ranger, driven by Jason Hout.
The Visalia female in the Toyota, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Lovenburg was not injured. Neither was Jaramillo, nor Hout hurt. Kiester and Torres sustained minor injuries.
