Lemon Cove, CA (September 29, 2019) – A drunk driver caused a crash in Lemon Cove, killing one person and injuring four others. The fatal accident occurred on the evening of September 29 on Highway 198.

He went into the eastbound lane and hit a GMC Yukon head-on. Young suffered major injuries. His passenger, a 61-year-old Visalia woman, died at the accident scene.

The driver of the GMC, 56-year-old Keely Stidham of Tulare suffered minor injuries. Two children in the vehicle, a 6-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy, were also injured. All were taken to a local hospital.

Young was booked into the Tulare County Jail and charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and drunk driving with a blood-alcohol level of more than .20 causing injury – both felonies. Bail has been set at $100,000.

Hidden FDA Database Concealed Reports of Surgical Stapler Malfunctions

A hidden FDA database of medical device failures was shut down in June 2019. The database contains medical device reports submitted to the FDA via its Alternative Summary Reporting Program from 1999 to 2019. Reports which were sent to this database were not, until recently, made public. The Alternative Summary Reporting Program is a non-public database, unlike the FDA’s MAUDE database which publicly logs medical device failures or defects for public review.
