Victim Killed While Trying to Help Driver in Fatal Hit and Run Accident

Hit and Run

Cerritos, CA (September 29, 2019) – A man was killed while trying to help someone on the side of the road in Cerritos. The fatal accident occurred just after midnight on September 29 on the 91 Freeway.

Miguel Gutierrez, 34, of Norwalk, was on his way home from Disneyland when he stopped on the shoulder of the eastbound 91 Freeway, near Bloomfield Avenue, to assist a 16-year-old boy who had run out of gas. A truck struck his car, then hit Gutierrez and dragged him on the freeway. The truck never stopped.

Gutierrez died at the accident scene. The suspected hit and run vehicle has not yet been found. It is described as a white box or work-type truck with wooden rails along the bed. 

Gutierrez’ wife, Lorraine Barajas, and other relatives witnessed the accident. Barajas had taken Gutierrez to Disneyland to celebrate finishing his automotive courses at Cerritos College.

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

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.
