Emily Echeverria Killed in Lancaster Hit-and-Run Crash

Emily Echeverria, 11, Dies Lancaster Car Accident

LANCASTER (July 21, 2017) – An 11-year-old girl gravely injured in an alleged hit-and-run crash Tuesday at 20th Street East and Lancaster Boulevard has died, according to The Antelope Valley Times.

The young victim, Lancaster resident Emily Tovar Echeverria, succumbed to her injuries at a hospital on Thursday.

As per the article, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Echeverria was riding as a passenger in one of the two vehicles involved. The two cars collided and became disabled just after midnight at the intersection.

Lancaster Fatal Hit-and-Run Crash

It was believed that the suspect, 25-year-old Eduardo Medrano Jr., left the scene in a gold or tan Infiniti 4-door sedan with a license number 6MWM091, which reportedly drove up to the accident site. Medrano turned himself into police on Friday evening, July 21.

Authorities are also considering the driver of the Infiniti sedan as a “person of interest” in the incident which remains under investigation.


We are deeply saddened by the news of this tragedy. We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the friends and family members of Emily Echeverria during such a difficult time.


In this incident, it is evident that Mr. Eduardo Medrano Jr. will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that led to the death of the innocent girl. Regardless of his reasons, leaving the scene following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision fatally injured another individual. We are hopeful that the authorities will soon be able to track down the suspect and the other person of interest.

The family of the 11-year-old victim has the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against Mr. Medrano who has neglected the safety of others on the road. The families of wrongful death victims need a professional representative in court who will fight aggressively for their legal rights.

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
