Brandon Cooper Thousand Palms Accident on Highway 86Brandon Cooper Hit by 2 Cars near Salton Sea

THOUSAND PALMS, Riverside County (August 7, 2017) – 30-year-old Brandon Cooper was fatally struck on Highway 86 late Sunday evening, according to the Desert Sun.

As per the article, Cooper was walking for unknown reasons along the northbound lanes when he was struck by a vehicle just south 84th Avenue. The driver of that vehicle did not stop to render aid to the victim, officials said.

Thousand Palms Fatal Accident

At approximately 11:15 p.m., Cooper was apparently lying face down in the right lane when he was then hit by a 2005 Ford Mustang. The driver, a 38-year-old Cathedral City woman, reported the incident and stayed at the scene.

Investigators have not yet determined how much time passed between the two collisions.

When emergency crews arrived, Cooper was not breathing anymore. The victim, a Thousand Oaks resident, was pronounced deceased at the scene around 11:29 p.m.

The highway’s right lane was closed to traffic until about 4:00 a.m. while officers investigated the crash. Authorities believe alcohol or drugs may have been involved.


At this time, authorities have not yet ruled if this fatal incident is a hit-and-run case. But the California Law states that any time a motorist hits a pedestrian and then flees the scene without contacting the victim or officers, it is considered as a hit-and-run. If investigators prove that the driver who fled the scene is liable for the death of Mr. Brandon Cooper, the victim’s family may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against any at-fault party.

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.

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.
