Artesia Fatal Accident 91 Freeway, September 1Marques Taylor, 15, Gahr High School Student Killed in Crash

ARTESIA (September 3, 2017)Marques Taylor, a 15-year-old Gahr High School student, was fatally struck by a car on the Interstate 91 Freeway Friday evening, according to Press-Telegram.

Authorities said the teenager was walking for unknown reasons in the eastbound lanes of the freeway when he was hit by a 2003 Dodge.

When paramedics arrived at the crash site, just east of Gridley Road, the teenage boy was already deceased. Reports mentioned the deadly crash happened at about 11:30 p.m.

The driver, Sarah Beth Melot, 38, of Corona pulled over and stopped after the crash.

A vigil was held for the teen on Saturday on Pioneer Boulevard.

Also, a Go Fund Me site has been established for the young man who died by his family.


We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of the deceased as they search for peace and comfort.


Based on primary reports in this specific case, it is still unclear if Ms. Sarah Melot will be held liable for causing the collision that resulted in a fatality. There are still several questions at this time—was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the accident? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Did the driver run a stop sign or a red light? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred in this tragic accident.

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.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
