Doting Mother Killed By Reckless Teen

A recent car accident involving a teen driver who slammed onto a vehicle minutes after a hit-and-run has killed a single mother in San Diego Sunday morning.

Pamela Sue Marabeas, 53, was reportedly on her way to work when her vehicle was hit on an intersection by a reckless 17-year-old girl who was reportedly involved in a hit-and-run earlier that day.

Marabeas died and the girl is still undergoing treatment for her injuries.

This accident supports statistics which shows that teens are more prone to accidents because of their little experience in driving. For this, parents should constantly remind their children of the dangers and responsibilities involved in driving so as to avoid accidents.

The daughter of the victim described her mother as a loving and caring mother who worked two jobs to support her and her brother’s needs. This should be an awakening to all drivers that they can still die from accidents even if they cautious enough on roads.

The victim’s family can seek compensatory damages which would cover the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and lost wages among others.
