Lorene Negrete Dies in Tractor-Trailer Vs. Car Accident on East Lincoln Road 

November 26, 2020 – Lorene Negrete, age 57, was killed on Wednesday evening around 6 P.M. Moreover, police officials arrested Pardeep Singh, age 29, of Fremont due to the deadly vehicle crash on East Lincoln Road and South Temperance Avenue. 
  
The California Highway Patrol officers reported that the driver of the tractor-trailer, Mr. Singh, did not see Mr. Negrete’s car as it was approaching. As a result, Mr. Singh pulled out in front of the car causing them to collide. 
  
Unfortunately, rescue workers who arrived at the scene found Mr. Negrete already deceased at the scene. 
  
Afterward, investigating workers reported that alcohol or drugs were not involved in this accident. Additionally, they made note that everyone involved in the accident were wearing their seatbelts. 
  
Meanwhile, investigating officials reported that Mr. Singh cooperated with the investigation. However, he is now facing charges of vehicular manslaughter. 

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 irresponsible 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 possible 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:  

o   Stop where you can still see the tires of the vehicle ahead of you.  

o   When the vehicle ahead of you begins to move, count two seconds before you continue to the stop sign.  

What is the Best Way to Avoid a Car Accident?  

Mostly, we think of driving as so common that we do not realize the inherent risks behind the wheel. However, when you are not traveling at interstate speeds, responding to, and stopping in case of a road hazard can happen in a matter of moments.  

All drivers end up facing split-second decisions to respond to potential hazards. Furthermore, to avoid a car crash, what should you do: brake or swerve?  

It is not always easy to figure out in the moment what actions to take. Specifically, if there’s not enough time for you to react.  

Here I will consider two types of car accident scenarios you are likely to encounter while avoiding a reckless driver and avoiding debris.  

Avoiding Accidents with Other Vehicles:  

Imagine you are driving down a quaint little country road. Also, there is almost no traffic coming at you. Then, suddenly a car pulls out in front of you from a driveway.  

What is your next move: brake or swerve?  

When You Swerve to Avoid an Accident  

First, your instincts kick in and your first thought may be to swerve to the right and sway off the road. It may seem that normally this would be a practical choice.   

Logically, it would protect you and your passenger from a collision. However, in this scenario, you misjudge the distance. As a result, you swerve off the road directly into a telephone pole instead.  

The name for this type of accident is called a “no-contact” accident. Also, the driver who caused you to crash is called a “phantom driver.”   

Since the other vehicle driver did not directly hit you, it is much harder to prove who is at fault.  

Usually, your insurance company will treat a “no-contact” accident as if the “phantom driver” had no insurance. Notably, because deciphering the other party’s fault is much more difficult.  

Subsequently, you will have to pay through your own policy underinsured / uninsured coverage.  

When You Brake to Avoid an Accident  

Pretend that you brake instead of swerve. However, you do not do it soon enough.  

As a result, you suffer a rear-end accident. Also, these can occur when you do not have enough room to stop.  

Let us say that you are the one who rear-end another car. Then, you are always at fault.   

It is extremely challenging to prove that the other driver was more at fault than you. Luckily, the same goes if somebody rear-ends you.   

In this synopsis, the driver who pulled out was more at fault. However, you would need a witness to help support your claim. 


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