Long Beach, CA (April 15, 2019) – A Hawaii woman was killed in a crash in Long Beach. The accident occurred on the evening of April 15 on the 405 Freeway.

The crash happened when the driver of a Tesla made an unsafe turn. The vehicle hit a raised concrete curb at the Lakewood Boulevard on-ramp. The Tesla then hit a Chevrolet, causing the right rear door of the Tesla to come off.

Judith Blankenfeld, 77, was ejected from the Tesla. She was hit by a BMW driven by a 54-year-old woman from Long Beach. She died at the accident scene.

The driver of the Tesla, a 78-year-old man, and another passenger, a 73-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries. Both are from San Clemente. Both were wearing seatbelts, but Blankenfeld was not.

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

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.
