Amanda Odeen Sebastopol Car Accident Mill Station Road; Thomas Henney Arrested

Amanda Odeen Sebastopol Car Accident Mill Station Road; Thomas Henney ArrestedMan, 21, Arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana Following Crash

SEBASTOPOL (January 16, 2018)- According to the Press Democrat, a woman remains in critical condition while a man is behind bars following a solo vehicle DUI collision Monday afternoon.

California Highway Patrol officials responded to the crash which occurred at 1:40 p.m. roughly on Mill Station Road near Occidental Road.

Preliminary investigative efforts read that the driver of a Buick, Thomas Henney, 21, had been driving while under the influence of marijuana accompanied by passenger Amanda Odeen, 18. As Henney continued along Mill Station Road, he suddenly swerved his vehicle to avoid hitting a cyclist forcing his vehicle to veer off the road and overturn.

Per the Press Democrat, Henney’s passenger, Amanda Odeen, suffered major injuries including an injury to her arm which was nearly amputated, according to CHP Officer Jon Sloat.

A group of Good Samaritans including the cyclist assisted in removing Odeen from the vehicle before an air ambulance helicopter landed. The 18-year-old teen was then taken to Memorial Hospital, where she remains in serious condition, according to reports.

Meanwhile, the vehicle’s driver, Henney, was arrested for driving under the influence and taken to Sonoma County Jail. He is currently being held on $100,000 bail.


The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group prayers remain with the victim- Amanda Odeen, as well as her family and friends at this time.


Sonoma Personal Injury Accident Lawyer

Most auto accidents are preventable for as long as motorists practice road safety measures and obey the traffic laws. In this case, Thomas Henney is accused of impaired driving while under the influence of marijuana which is considered as a serious crime in California. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs has corresponding criminal penalties, and the kinds of the charges to be filed depend on factors including the prior convictions, if there are any, of the alleged DUI driver, the severity of the offense, the level of intoxication and the injuries caused to another individual.

It is apparent that Henney’s impaired driving resulted in the injuries incurred by Amanda Odeen. In this case, Odeen may file a personal injury lawsuit against her driver seeking compensation for all the hospital bills and medical expenses as well as pain and suffering endured.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
