Edgar Vega, 26, Killed, 1 Injured in Temecula Crash
TEMECULA (January 28, 2018) – Edgar Vega, 26, of Lancaster was killed and driver, Justyn Roland Cabunoc, 23, was injured Sunday morning in a car accident at Camino Estribo and Camino Potro, according to Press Enterprise.
Vega was a passenger in a 1995 Jeep driven by Cabunoc who reportedly was speeding and made an unsafe turn before losing control of the vehicle just west of Via Gorrion. The crash took place about 8:30 a.m.
The report stated that a vehicle went off the roadway and fell about a hundred feet down an embankment from the hilly road, just west of the Interstate 15 Freeway.
Vega died of his injuries at the scene, but the driver managed to walk back up the road after the crash. Cabunoc suffered minor injuries and was later arrested on DUI and vehicular manslaughter charges.
Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group offer our condolences to the family of Edgar Vega at this difficult time.

A fatal collision such as this one will require extensive police work to investigate the cause and assign liability.
If a negligent driver caused a collision that caused you injuries or a family member’s death, you may have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
The loss of a loved one in a traffic accident is an enormous loss to a family, but compounding their pain is the onslaught of bills ranging from medical costs to funeral expenses. It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim even when they know their insured is at fault. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed. This is unacceptable.
If you, or your loved one, have been hurt in a traffic accident, we urge you to contact Johnson Attorneys Group today and speak with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers to help you.
