Lebec, CA – On January 28, 2024, a rollover crash on Interstate 5 at Lebec Service Road killed a 65-year-old man identified by the Kern County Coroner’s Office as Myong Kim of Castro Valley, according to KBAK.

Around 12:35 AM, Kim was driving a 2007 Honda Accord on I-5 when he lost control of his vehicle for reasons yet to be determined. His Honda left the road, rolled over, and impacted with a chain-link fence.

The California Highway Patrol arrived at the crash site at 12:39 AM and pronounced Kim dead at the scene. Authorities do not believe driver intoxication to have been a factor.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. Helping to determine legal liability is one of the ways that a personal injury attorney can help grieving families recovering from the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If it is determined that another driver holds responsibility for their loved one’s death, they may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver. A wrongful death claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.
