UPDATE: Michael Keith, 56, Donna Yarnal, 66, Cindi Schuchterman, 65, Janelle Hall, 33, Identified in Bonds Flat Rd Crash in Tuolumne County

Tuolumne County, CA – On the evening of Friday, May 31, 2024, a devastating high-speed collision in Tuolumne County claimed the lives of four individuals, whose names have been recently released, according to CBS13.

The tragic accident occurred around 5 PM when a pickup truck, driven by 56-year-old Michael Keith, was traveling northbound on Bonds Flat Road at approximately 100 mph.

The pickup truck, which also carried passengers 66-year-old Donna Yarnal and 65-year-old Cindi Schuchterman, attempted to pass another vehicle by crossing over the double-yellow lines near the intersection of La Grange Road.

At the same time, an SUV driven by 33-year-old Janelle Hall was heading southbound on Bonds Flat Road, and the two collided. The impact was so severe that both vehicles became embedded in each other, resulting in an immediate and catastrophic loss of life for all four individuals involved.

Authorities confirmed that Keith, Yarnal, Schuchterman, and Hall were all pronounced dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash, including the potential involvement of drugs or alcohol.

Wrongful Death Claims

While no amount of money can bring back those who lose their lives in a vehicular fatality, the emotional burden of their loss is often accompanied by a financial burden that falls on their surviving family members.

A wrongful death claim filed with the insurance provider of parties who bear even partial liability can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.

However, because insurance companies carry the incentive to reduce the payout for any claim they cannot deny, the services of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in securing justice for the deceased.
