Fatal Accident 8

Morongo Valley, CA (June 12, 2019) – A woman was arrested for DUI after causing a Morongo Valley crash that killed two teens. The fatal accident occurred on the evening of June 12 at State Route 62 and Rosella Drive.

Two vehicles collided at the intersection. An eastbound driver was attempting to make a left turn into the Circle K when it crashed into the westbound vehicle.

There were four people inside the Toyota Prius, while the Ford Fiesta had just one occupant – the driver, Morongo Valley resident Nicole Packer, 33. 

Packer was speeding before the accident took place. The driver of the Prius, Los Angeles resident Colin Campbell, 49, suffered major injuries. The front seat passenger, Gail Lerner, 49, of Los Angeles, suffered moderate injuries. Two teen passengers, ages 14 and 17, were taken to local hospitals, where they later died.  Lerner is executive producer on ABC’s “Black-ish” and has been co-executive producer on “Ugly Betty,” “Happy Endings” and “Will & Grace,” according to the Internet Movie Data Base.

Packer suffered major injuries in the crash. She, Campbell and Lerner were taken to a local hospital. Packer was later arrested for felony DUI. 

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of the victims.

Ladder Accidents

Ladders may seem fairly simple to use. After all, all you have to do is climb up the rungs until you reach your desired height. However, ladder use is more complicated than you may think. It’s also very dangerous, resulting in 90,000 emergency room visits and killing 700 employees every year. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) believes that all of these injuries and deaths could be prevented.
