San Jose, CA (September 16, 2022) – On Friday, Jacob Villanueva, an 8-year-old boy, sustained fatal injuries in a pedestrian accident near the Castlemont Elementary School involving Shiva Moozoun, a 44-year-old woman.

The 3rd grader was hit by a new 2022 black Mercedes Crossover at about 8 a.m. on Castlemont Avenue

Immediately, the paramedics rushed the boy to the hospital where he died shortly.

“This is the most tragic possibility: something no mother, no father wants to hear,” said Officer Steve Aponte. “As we go through the day we are going to keep investigating this and if there’s additional information we will put that out there.”

The driver, Shiva Moozoun, is cooperating with the officers’ investigation. Though, Aponte added that no arrests had been made as of 1 p.m. Friday.

“Officers are still with [the driver], trying to talk to them,” Aponte said. The officer also said they do not consider alcohol and drugs as a factor at this time.

According to the investigators, Jacob Villanueva was in a crosswalk with a 44-year-old nanny when they were struck by the vehicle. The nanny was also transported to the hospital with moderate injuries.

In the meantime, the authorities are still investigating the fatal accident near Castlemont Elementary School.

Following the accident that killed the 8-year-old boy Jacob Villanueva, it is indeed important to have an independent investigation held to better protect your rights.

The benefit of getting yourself a wrongful death attorney is that they will help you get compensation for the economic and non-economic damages incurred as a result of the death.

However, know that with a wrongful death case, there is a time limit on which the bereaved can take legal action. These restrictions are called the statute of limitations. It will only allow you to file a wrongful death lawsuit within a certain amount of time. When these expire, the legal claim is no longer valid. Thus, the loved ones can no longer file a lawsuit.
