Tragic accident Claims Life of Los Angeles Father on His Way to Meet Family

SAN YSIDRO, CA – A devastating accident on southbound Interstate 805 near the San Ysidro Port of Entry took the life of Abel Bermudez, a Los Angeles father, on Wednesday morning. The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department reported that the fatal crash was caused by a wrong-way driver.

The collision occurred around 11:55 a.m. near East San Ysidro Boulevard when a white car traveling in the wrong direction crashed into Abel Bermudez’s blue van, resulting in fatal injuries. Abel, who was on his way to meet three of his children, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His grieving family is demanding justice and hopes that this tragic incident serves as a sobering reminder to everyone about the dangers of driving under the influence. The driver of the white car has been arrested on charges of DUI and gross vehicle manslaughter, and an investigation is underway.

Impaired drivers pose a significant risk to everyone on the road and can tragically alter lives. According to the National Safety Council, 10 percent of all fatal automobile accidents are caused by drivers operating vehicles under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other substances. These accidents are the second-leading cause of automobile fatalities in the country.


Candice Bond, an experienced DUI accident attorney, emphasized that victims may be entitled to compensation through a civil lawsuit against the responsible party. She stated, “Serving as an advocate, an attorney can help compassionately guide a victim during this difficult time, protecting their legal rights while ensuring that drunk drivers are held accountable for their reckless actions.”

Pending the results of the investigation, the family of Abel Bermudez may pursue a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for medical and funeral expenses, the loss of love and companionship, pain and suffering, and emotional trauma. Stefano Formica, Of Counsel with Bond Legal, explained that when vehicle accident fatalities result from unsafe driving, distracted driving, speeding, or driving under the influence, family members are often left with the option to pursue a civil action against the responsible motorist.

Formica added, “We understand just what families are forced to go through, and having their rights protected is vital. A wrongful death lawyer will stay updated on the official investigation and help ensure that their legal rights and best interests are protected.”
