Daniel De Los Santos Killed in Ukiah Hit-and-Run; Michael Seigler Arrested

UKIAH (February 5, 2018) – A pedestrian killed after an alleged hit-and-run accident on Highway 101 last week has been identified as Daniel De Los Santos, according to The Press Democrat.

California Highway Patrol said the 51-year-old Ukiah man was a victim of a tragic collision which occurred on January 30 at around 5:15 a.m.

As per the article, CHP affirmed that De Los Santos was crossing the Talmage Road on-ramp to southbound Highway 101 when he was struck by a 2016 Ford F-250 pickup truck. The pickup was turning onto the on-ramp when it hit the victim.

De Los Santos was found lying in the roadway with severe injuries to his head, rib-cage and leg. He was initially taken to to Adventist Health Ukiah Valley, then to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Meanwhile CHP claimed that the driver of the truck, 52-year-old Michael Seigler, left the scene following the collision. The Ukiah resident was arrested and booked into Mendocino County Jail on suspicion of felony hit-and-run causing death and manslaughter with gross negligence with a bail set at $50,000.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of Mr. Daniel De Los Santos during such a difficult time.

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.
