Kyung Shim Dies in Ridgecrest Accident on Highway 395

 

October 23, 2020 - Kyung Shim, age 72, was tragically killed on Sunday, October 18th. Moreover, she was a passenger in an SUV that struck another vehicle near Ridgecrest.

Originally, Mr. Shim was traveling in a Toyota Highlander on Highway 395. Then, he went to make a left turn into a rest stop at about 4:39 P.M.  

Consistent with the California Highway Patrol, the driver of the Highlander ran a stop sign at a four-way stop and went ahead in an eastbound direction. Then, a vehicle driving northbound hit the Highlander before it had time to stop. 

Ms. Shim was rushed to a local hospital, where she later died. Moreover, the CHP is investigating the crash. 

During their investigation, officials will try to find out what caused the crash that took Ms. Shim’s life. 

As part of the probe, a forensic examination of both cars will be performed. In addition, photos of the scene will also be used to help investigators figure out which party is at fault. 

Several factors can play a role in accidents, including but not limited to impairment, reckless driving, distracted driving, road conditions and speeding. Here we have supplied three tips to help keep you from having an accident. 

3 Easy Tips for Accident Prevention 

Recent research shows that drivers often do not come to a full stop at stop signs. 

This irrisponsible and lazy type of driving behavior could lead to dangerous consequences. Furthermore, intersections are where many crashes occur. 

By following three simple tips, drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists can all stay a little safer. 

  • Come to a complete stop at the painted stop line or before the crosswalk. Moreover, if there are no sidewalk markings, stop just before the stop sign. 
  •  Look for any posible risks before entering the intersection by looking left, right, straight ahead and then left again. 
  • If another vehicle is stopped ahead of you at the stop sign: 
  1. Stop where you can still see the tires of the vehicle ahead of you. 
  2. When the vehicle ahead of you begins to move, count two seconds before you continue to the stop sign. 

To the family and friends of Kyung Shim, we cannot begin to imagine what you are going through, and our sincerest condolences go out to you.
