San Diego, CA (February 3 2022) – Chargers star and NFL Hall of Famer Junior Seau’s brother, Savaii Seau (56), died in a two-vehicle accident in Lakeside. The crash happened at around 2:10 pm on Tuesday.
According to authorities, Savaii Seau was driving north of Los Coches Road when his Audie drifted towards the southbound lanes near Lakeview Road. The Audi struck a Helix Water District vehicle. Unfortunately, Savaii Seau sustained severe injuries. Responders took him to the hospital, but he was later pronounced dead.
Savaii Seau’s Audi drifted and crashed into a Helix Water District vehicle.
Savaii Seau’s wife was a passenger of the Audi. She and the truck’s driver suffered minor to moderate injuries. At the moment, it’s unknown if drugs or alcohol were involved in the incident. Authorities are still investigating this case.
Savaii Seau dedicated his time working in the private Warren-Walker School as a physical education teacher. He had been part of the school’s personnel for 14 years. Aside from teaching, he also coached football, basketball, and track at the middle school campus in Mission Valley. He was also an artist who instructed in the school’s summer art programs. Seau had worked on murals, which can be found on campus.
Warren-Walker School’s headmaster Raymond Volker expressed grief over the loss of a valuable member of the Warren-Walker School community. “A fatal car accident has claimed our beloved Coach Seau, who rained love on all of his students, was a bright light in our (school) family, and (was) loved by all. His inspiration, support and incredibly unselfish spirit will be missed by his family as well, and to whom we extend our deepest condolences,” said Volker in an article on the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Volker continued, “To see him move his large frame in perfect rhythm to a favorite song, along with the youngest of his students, was a sight to behold… They, along with students of all ages, referred to him as ‘Coachee’ — not only an endearing address — but one filled with deep respect and love.”

Personal Injury (Wrongful Death) Claims in San Diego
In this case, the family members of Savaii Seau can have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. However, it can depend on the investigation’s findings. In addition to that, negligence by a person or business can contribute to an accident, which might have resulted in the death of a family member. If that is the case, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim and receive a big settlement.
Indeed, no amount of money will ever make up for the death of a loved one. However, receiving the maximum settlement and winning a judgment can give a sense of justice. Also, it can offer some peace of mind.
