CORONA: Mother, Son, 6, Killed, DUI Driver Arrested 15 Freeway Crash

Rollover crashCORONA, California (April 27, 2016) –– Ashley Austin, 27, and Christopher Austin, 6, were killed when a suspected drunken driver crashed the GMC Sierra they were riding in on the 15 Freeway Friday in a construction area, according to a report by the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner.

The Canyon Lake mother and son were passengers in the vehicle driven by Michael Edward Mason, 58, of Claremont. Police arrested the driver after the crash on DUI charges.  They both died at the scene of the crash before emergency responders arrived. Other passengers were a 9-year-old girl who was hospitalized with minor injuries after the 9:22 p.m. crash.

Mason was also taken to Riverside Community Hospital where he was arrested and taken to Robert Presley Detention Center. He faces charges including murder, DUI of alcohol, vehicular manslaughter and willfully harming a child.

The California Highway Patrol reported the 2002 GMC was traveling northbound at roughly 60 mph Friday night when Mason allegedly veered off the roadway crashed into a ditch where it overturned after it struck a set of steel beams and then stacks of lumber.

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.
