VENTURA (July 28, 2017)- According to KTLA 5 News, Brandon Thomas and Rachel Cline, 25, and 28, respectively, have been identified as the victims fatally injured in a devastating head-on collision Thursday morning on Highway 101.

Authorities reported that 34-year-old Ramon Valencia Jr. had been traveling at speeds well over 100 mph in the wrong direction heading northbound within southbound lanes.

Ramon Valencia, 34, Triggers Deadly Crash in Ventura on Highway 101

Per the LA Times, a CHP officer saw the wrong-way driver and attempted to alert other officials but it was too late as Valencia, of Santa Paula, slammed head-on into the couple, Cline and Thomas.

Both Thomas and Cline who were inside a Nissan Versa tragically suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced at the scene, as was their dog.

The driver of the Toyota responsible for the crash was also pronounced dead at the scene. He is only being ID’ed right now as a 34-year-old from Santa Paula.

California Highway Patrol officials cannot confirm just yet but believe that alcohol likely played a role here.


With the information provided from the report, there is clearly negligence and wrongdoing on behalf of the motorist who was speeding well over the limit clocking out at roughly 100 mph. Authorities will also soon determine whether drugs or alcohol were an involving factor causing this tragedy. JAG Founder James Johnson stresses the importance of road awareness especially in the late evening or early stages of the morning where there may be drunk or reckless drivers present. When it is late at night and the roads are clear it is recommended to drive in the far right lane on any road, highway, or freeway to give the driver enough time to react to a dangerous driver who could potentially swerve into oncoming traffic.

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.
