Vershad Raggins Killed, 4 Injured In Orange County Crash On 241 Toll Road

Orange County, California (August 26, 2019) – According to a local news source, a 7-year-old boy from Fontana was tragically killed and four other people were injured in a two-vehicle crash on Sunday, August 25, at about 1:36 p.m. in Orange County. Little Vershad was airlifted to Children’s Hospital of Orange County in an effort to save his life, where he unfortunately later died. The crash happened on the 241 Toll Road, near Windy Ridge Road, south of the 91 Freeway and southeast of Anaheim Hills.

According to preliminary reports from authorities at the California Highway Patrol, Vershad was in a Kia Optima with four other individuals including his father and two siblings when it became disabled in the number two lane. While it s not clear why the vehicle stalled, a white Ford cargo van was traveling at about 75 miles per hour at which time it crashed into the vehicle.

Four other people were taken to local trauma centers in unknown conditions.

The crash remains under investigation.

We send our deep condolences to the family of Vershad Raggins for their irreplaceable loss. Whatever the reason for the vehicle stalling, it is important to keep in mind that all drivers on California roads have a duty to keep a proper lookout at all times when driving. If this incident took place in broad daylight at 1:30 p.m., it is difficult to understand why the other driver in the Cargo Van was not able to see and avoid the Kia that had been stopped. Failure to keep a proper lookout constitutes negligence. While the investigation is ongoing, the police will look into all factors that led to this incident. The family of the little boy, and the others injured on scene, could be entitled to wrongful dearth and personal injury claims.
