Alyson Akers, 50, Seriously Injured in Tour de Palm Springs Crash on Dillon Road

INDIO HILLS (February 11, 2018) – A Tour de Palm Springs bicyclist who was hit and seriously injured by a car Saturday has been identified as Alyson Lee Akers, according to The Desert Sun.

California Highway Patrol said the 50-year-old Huntington Beach woman was one of the two victims who were hit by a speeding driver on eastbound Dillon Road near Indio Hills.

As per the article, Akers and other several bicyclists were participating in the Tour de Palm Springs when a 2006 Ford 500 traveling at a high rate of speed struck them.

Akers was flown to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs with major injuries and a laceration to her head. Another cyclist was killed in the crash.

The collision was reported at 9:25 a.m., south of Tinker Road.

Meanwhile CHP determined that the driver of the Ford, 21-year-old Ronnie R. Huerta Jr., was lost control of his car after approaching the westbound lane and driving off the roadway onto the dirt shoulder. The Desert Hot Spring man then veered back into the path of Akers and the other rider and went across the eastbound lane over a dirt berm.

Huerta suffered moderate injuries as his car ultimately rolled over. He was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center but was later arrested. The suspect is facing a charge of vehicular manslaughter and is being detained at the Riverside County Jail in Indio.

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. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
