The news comes courtesy of a report in the Daily Pilot.
While Costa Mesa Police initially indicated there were no serious injuries sustained during the series of accidents on the 55 freeway, it was was revealed a day later that 38-year old Holli Griggs did in fact require medical attention.
Griggs contacted the Daily Pilot and issued a comment in the days proceeding the accident but stated she did not know the severity of her injures. Now, according to the paper, her 16-week old son has died.
While the article quotes Griggs’ fiance, Bill Krebs, as stating that Griggs sustained a miscarriage, the article does not offer any hard evidence that the child’s death was in fact related to the accident. However, Krebs states at the hospital, doctors became concerned about Griggs and her unborn child due to a loss of fluid in the womb. During an examination days prior, Krebs said that doctors indicated that Griggs “had enough fluid for three babies.”
The report indicates that Griggs and Krebs have retained an attorney and are considering legal action. But civil action could be the least of Jackson’s concerns. As of now, he has been charged with hit-and-run, evading and reckless driving. However, it’s possible Jackson could face additional charges.
“Our office will make sure we take as much time as necessary to make a proper filing decision and including all evidence and medical information to make sure any charges that are filed are fair and accurate,” District Attorney spokeswoman Farrah Emami is quoted as saying.
