2 Cars Fatally Strike Timothy Faulk on Brentwood Boulevard
Brentwood, CA (June 30, 2020) – On Monday, 63-year-old Timothy Faulk was struck and killed by two cars on Brentwood Boulevard.
The accident happened at about 10:15 p.m., south of Harvest Park Drive.
The police report said two different cars collided into him while he laid under a gray-and-black sleeping bag in the middle of a city boulevard.
The driver of one of the vehicles was driving south and slowed down after seeing a dark-colored tarp in the lane. Though he was trying to manage his speed, he ultimately couldn’t avoid it.
The driver stayed and cooperated with the investigation. Police said he wasn’t under the influence of either drugs or alcohol.
Furthermore, a witness reported that a white or silver pickup truck also struck Faulk in his sleeping bag. That vehicle was the second to hit Faulk. It continued to travel south on Brentwood Boulevard.
Meanwhile, police are currently searching for the suspect.
Police spokesman Michael Thompson said they do not know why Faulk was under the sleeping bag in the middle of the road.
A further investigation is being conducted on the fatal incident.

What to Do in Case of Wrongful Death
In the case of wrongful death, the family of the victim should be aware of their rights under the law. This means that there may be a right to file a lawsuit against the people responsible for their loss. Those closest to the victim may have the right to seek compensation for their loss. Common uses for this compensation include funeral expenses, medical bills, and finally the “loss of consortium.” Loss of consortium means the deprivation of future affection and companionship over an untimely death.
“The aftermath of tragic accidents can make everything difficult for a family. The last thing most families want to deal with is piles of paperwork, questions from insurance companies or defense attorneys, and attempting to obtain police reports. Grieving and handling legal claims don’t exactly go hand in hand, this is why hiring an experienced attorney can not only provide you with peace of mind that you have a fighter in your corner, but also make sure that your rights are valued and that justice will be served. Having a legal advocate after such a traumatic event will provide your family the space to heal, while ensuring that justice is brought for your loved one,” says Mark Sweet, a seasoned attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
