Anthony Dunn Jr., a postal worker from Compton had died when a vehicle struck his van while he was standing near the rear of his van on Tuesday in Boyle Heights. Dunn was taken to a hospital but was declared dead. The motorist who struck Dunn’s vehicle had a suspended license and the driver may have fallen asleep. Charges are pending against the motorist although if the fact the driver had fallen asleep was true, depending on the circumstances, he or she may not be charged with homicide. However, civil charges will not be avoided against the motorist although the insurance company will probably argue that their policy does not extend to insured’s negligence in violation of their policy – keeping their driver’s license status up to date. Depending on whether this accident occurred while Dunn was fulfilling his duties as a mailman during his working hours, his family members may be able to bring a work compensation claim against the employer along with the driver, holding them jointly and severally liable for the wrongful death of Mr. Dunn.
