Moreno Valley, California – Lucretia Garland, 31, of San Jacinto has been identified by the authorities as the mother who died Tuesday morning following a Moreno Valley crash on Gilman Springs Road that left her three children injured

The California Highway Patrol said the collision happened east of Alessandro Boulevard as a driver in a sedan drifted across the double yellow lines and clipped a box truck. 

The driver then collided head-on with an oncoming sedan driven by Garland.

Firefighters responded at around 7 a.m. to the collision and extricated one of the children from the wreckage.

CHP said the children were all well buckled into car seats and sustained minor injuries.

Garland suffered severe injuries and was rushed to Riverside University Medical Center in Moreno Valley, where she was pronounced deceased shortly after.

The driver of the vehicle that initiated the crash suffered major injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The box truck driver was not injured.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
