Skydive Accident Claims the Life of NASCAR Driver’s Brother

Jordan Janway, the brother-in-law of NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson, has died following a mid-air skydiving collision. According to NBC, Janway was practicing a maneuver called ‘tracking’ while training Skydive San Diego Employees when the collision happened. Because of Janway’s level of experience, he wasn’t required to jump with a chip – a device that deploys the parachute in the event a skydiver is falling too fast. Apparently, Janway’s was undergoing maintenance at the time of the jump. It is unclear if that would have saved his life. Our thoughts are with the Janway and Johnson families as they mourn the loss of Jordan. A tragic loss like this one, reminds us how important safety precautions are when participating in extreme … Continue reading

Diver in Boynton Beach Brought Back To Life

An act of heroism brought a Boynton Beach diver back to life. According to reports, the man arrived back at the Explorer vessel unresponsive, where fellow diver Richard Henshaw, the boat’s captain and assistant captain, performed CPR. Even before Coast Guard and EMT arrived, the comrades were able to resuscitate the diver, reminding us how life-saving it is to never partake in water sports alone. Even with proper precautions in place, such as dive flags and buoys that warn boats of scuba-divers’ location, mother nature can also be responsible for accidents like this one. Joseph Razzano, who watched the scenario play out, explained how rough waters and submerged rocks, especially when close to shore, can wreak havoc on a beautiful … Continue reading

Driver on Meth Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison

Operating a vehicle is a privilege and one that should be taken on with responsibility and defensive driving techniques. Getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol impairs proper judgement and reaction time that is necessary to be a safe driver. We are saddened to learn about accidents caused by operator negligence, especially when these bad decisions involve innocent passengers. Not only do drug or alcohol related crashes wreak havoc on victim’s families, they also carry heavy penalties. Such is the case on Monday when Robbie Dean Gillespie, 45, of Rancho Bernardo, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, following a June accident that killed his 19-year-old passenger Evelyn Courtney. Gillespie and Courtney collided with a … Continue reading

Drunk Driver Sentenced to 9 Years After Fatal Alpine Crash

We wish accidents never happened at all, but sadly they are apart of our lives. Heavy traffic and unfavorable weather conditions, which sometimes affect Southern California, can contribute to collisions. However some accidents might be avoided altogether, such as those involving drivers under the influence. Not only is it illegal to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, drinking and driving restricts vision and hearing, delaying reaction time. As a result, penalties for those under the influence while driving are heavy and can include hefty fines and long prison sentences. Not only are the negligent drivers involved, victims and their families are left to pick up the pieces. Such is the case when Angela August, 25, and Jimmy Arevalo, 59, were … Continue reading

Chef and Iron Man Competitor Biking Again After Crash

Even those who compete in the legendary ‘Iron Man’ competition, aren’t necessarily made of steel, as evidenced with San Diego chef Steve Ferguson. Grueling workouts that include relays of cycling and swimming kept Ferguson, a longtime Morena area chef, in shape for years – until he was hit by a car biking home from Waters, where he has been head chef for two decades. The crash nearly killed him, sending him to the hospital for 17 days and keeping him on a physical therapy regimen for five months. We wish there was a way to keep accidents from happening, but unfortunately they are a part of our everyday lives. Even when bicyclists are cautious, seasoned riders, there are myriad reasons why … Continue reading

Beloved Skateboarder Tragically Hit in San Diego

  Southern California’s pleasant weather and scenic highways are perfect for those desiring an outdoor lifestyle. It’s a concern however, how the space is shared between motorists and those partaking in recreational activity. We are always saddened to hear about skateboarders, bike riders and pedestrians being affected by the vehicles they share the road with. It’s even more disheartening when negligence plays a factor in tragically claiming one of these lives. Vincent Edward Zellefrow, Jr., 20, was skateboarding with a friend on Carlsbad Boulevard when he was struck and killed by a vehicle. His family has said he skated over 50 miles on a recent vacation in Maui and loved to be outside. A 17-year-old suspect was later arrested and … Continue reading

Higher Witness Rewards May Help Curb San Diego’s Hit-and-Run Epidemic

When someone responsible for an accident flees the scene, it can leave victims feeling helpless. These incidents can also become a dead-end for police investigation. A slew of hit-and-run collisions in the area, often involving pedestrians, have given the San Diego police department, along with Crime Stoppers, reason to call for raised witness rewards. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene knows that an accident of any kind will shake up your world and we hope that you never find yourself in that position. Three accidents in the last month have shaken up the community and pointed to a possible need for higher monetary incentives. Within the same week, Motorcyclist Seamus O’Bryan was killed by a hit and run driver in a white … Continue reading

Florida Bus Company Fails to Respond To Deadly Crash in Philippines

If an accident happens and the responsible party refuses to communicate, can you still take action? Absolutely. Just because an at-fault company fails to respond to an accident and the ensuing claims, you still have legal recourse. Our lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene want you to know that you have rights that should be exercised and we are here to be your voice. Such is the case of this Florida-based transportation company, who has yet to formally respond to their victims. GV Florida Transport, a company operating in the Philippines, is under scrutiny after a fatal crash in Bontoc, Mountain Province, in which a bus fell into a ravine – killing 14 and injuring more than 30. These victims, … Continue reading

Log Truck Collides with SUV in Suwannee

We are always saddened to hear about accidents, especially those that involve semi-trucks and 18-wheelers. Knowing the power and the force they may exert when involved in a crash, large working vehicles should be operated with extreme care, to help avoid incidents like the one in Suwannee County last week. The Florida Highway Patrol says 42-year-old Eliecer Labrada was driving a log truck onto U.S. 90 from County Road 137 when he pulled directly into the path of 42-year-old Tracy Deas’ SUV. The accident happened just after midnight and closed U.S. 90 for hours. Deas was taken to Shands Hospital, but was pronounced dead just after 8:30 this morning. The truck driver was not hurt, and there is no word … Continue reading

Victims of Head-On Collision Ask San Diego to Make SR 56 Safer

The couple that was involved in a severe head-on collision in San Diego is calling on Caltrans, the state agency responsible for highway planning and maintenance, to make SR-56 safer. As advocates for the San Diego community, we are following stories like this one to ensure that the city’s streets and highways are as safe as possible. We wish that accidents never happened, especially those that may have been avoided. In this case, Craig and Kathryn Nyberg say that a median barrier may have helped do exactly that, after a vehicle came crashing into their lane. The Nyberg’s were driving on SR-56 when, according to official reports, a vehicle traveling nearly 100 MPH in the other direction, crossed the median … Continue reading
