In California, traffic signals and devices should be obeyed by drivers. The simple act of running a red light can be quite deadly. In Novato, California, Steven Culbertson, age 19 from Lakeville, California, first hit a car stopped for a light and then drove through the red light and into the intersection. Then, Culbertson in a BMW Mini Cooper crashed into a mini-van occupied by the Maloney family. The father (Johnathan Maloney – age 45), the mother (Susan Maloney – age 42) and two children (Grace and Aiden) died as a result of the impact according to the California Highway Patrol.
This crash is truly tragic. The sudden and avoidable deaths of the Maloney Family will be such a loss for their other family members, neighbors, friends, and the community.
All drivers should obey the speed limit and obey traffic signals. Running a red light as you can see can be deadly not only for one person but an entire family. See California Family Killed in Red Light Automobile Accident.
