Los Angeles, CA — Leading law firm Owen, Patterson & Owen has been retained by Antelope Valley College President Dr. Jackie Fisher as a result of a horrific traffic accident which claimed the life of Dr. Fisher’s grandson and left him, wife Carla Fisher and a granddaughter hospitalized with major injuries.

The California Highway Patrol reported that six year old Nickolas Reed was pronounced dead at the scene. His ten year old sister was transported to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles where she remains in critical condition.

Carla Fisher, the grandmother of the two children additionally suffered a stroke. She is listed in critical condition at the same hospital.

“In thirty years of practice I have never seen a vehicle with this much damage where someone actually survived,” said the family’s attorney Greg Owen, Senior Partner of Owen, Patterson & Owen. “This family, in a single terrible instant, saw the lives of several generations altered forever. And it’s still not over.”

The Fishers were returning from a trip to Bakersfield at the time of the collision, according to a statement from the college. Family members have requested prayer, the statement said.
