According to US aviation attorney Robert Clifford, there may have been a way to prevent last Friday’s helicopter crash in California that killed Herbert Wigwe, the group chief executive officer of Access Holdings, and his family.

Clifford stated as much in a news release that was uploaded to the business’ website on Wednesday.

In the tragic collision, Wigwe, his wife Doreen, son Chizi, and Abimola Ogunbanjo—a former group chairman of the Nigerian Stock Exchange—all perished.

The border town between California and Nevada was the site of an Airbus Helicopter EC130B4 disaster.

Speaking in the midst of the US National Transportation Safety Board’s ongoing investigation into the helicopter disaster, Clifford is the Founder and Senior Partner of Clifford Law Offices in Chicago.

Part of the statement said,

“One immediately feels that, given the known weather conditions at the time, the Saturday night helicopter crash near the California-Nevada border that claimed the lives of six people, including a prominent Nigerian banker and his family, could have been prevented.”

In addition, he expressed optimism that the US National Transportation Safety Board’s continuing investigations would reveal whether or not the tragedy was preventable.
