UNIVERSITY CITY, California (June 13, 2017) — Two drivers died early Tuesday morning in a crash involving a wrong-way driver on the westbound State Route 52 Freeway, just east of the Interstate 5, according to a report by Fox 5 News.

One of the drivers was identified as Riyadh Kamil Kafaji, 52, of La Jolla, according to the San Diego Medical Examiner.

The fatal crash took place just after midnight this morning. A driver in a gray pickup truck was allegedly traveling eastbound in the westbound fast lane on SR-52. Multiple people called 911 to report the wrong-way driver, but the vehicle eventually collided with  a Mercedes sedan driven by Kafaji. The collision forced the Mercedes about 100 feet off the road and it landed in the brush where it caught on fire. The pickup overturned onto its left side at the edge of the freeway and was also on fire.  The fiery crash killed the two drivers.  There were no other occupants in either vehicles, police said.

The roadway was closed down for an investigation into the crash. The collision remains under investigation by police.

When a wrong-way driver is responsible for a fatal crash it’s likely that drugs and or alcohol were involved. Drunk driving and drugged driving are preventable tragedies. Attorney James Johnson, a longtime supporter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, has made it his mission to put an end to drunken driving. This year his San Diego law firm is sponsoring four Walk Like MADD fundraisers.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
