Investigation Determined Safety Features Disabled In Vehicle That Rolled Over Lakeside, CA Girl

On Feb. 22, 10-year-old Kiera Larson was playing with two young toddlers when a 1999 Mercedes SUV that was parked on a sloping driveway started rolling down a hill towards them. Kiera pushed the toddlers out of the path of the vehicle, but the car struck her and pushed her through a fence. She died from her injuries in a California hospital.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) determined that two disabled safety features may account for the accident. First, the shift interrupter or interlock, which prevents someone from shifting out of park unless the foot is on the brake, was “broken or disabled or disconnected,” Secondly, a cable running from the brake pedal to the ignition had been disconnected. Investigators are still working to determine who is responsible for disabling the features.

Losing a loved one is an extremely difficult time for family members affected by the tragedy. No matter how this investigation concludes, the family should seek legal advice from an experienced attorney as soon as possible. They may be able to receive compensation for the wrongful death of this child and claim damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other damages resulting from the accident. Obviously, this type of litigation can become quite complex and take a long time to settle causing immediate and long-term financial problems for the family. Lawsuit funding can help them pay the bills during the litigation process.
