Erik Davalos Fatal Modesto Crash McHenry Ave, Standiford Ave

Modesto Man Killed in Crash with Alleged DUI Driver

 Erik Davalos Fatal Modesto Crash McHenry Ave, Standiford AveSACRAMENTO, Calif. (Sept. 20, 2021) — Erik Davalos, 33, of Modesto, died in a three-vehicle crash Sunday near McHenry Avenue and Standiford Avenue in Modesto.

According to the Modesto Police Department, the deadly crash happened about 6 p.m. at the intersection. The crash took place about 5:30 p.m. between Sylvan and Woodrow avenues.

Miguel Angel Zapien, 20, of Escalon, was driving a black 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck north on McHenry Avenue. He collided into the driver’s side of a 2022 black Hyundai IONIQ driven by Erik Davalos. The Hyundai was exiting a parking lot on the east side of the roadway.

Upon impact, the Hyundai driven by Erik Davalos crossed into southbound lanes on McHenry Avenue where it also collided with a 2009 black Ford F-150 pickup truck. During the crash, Erik Davalos suffered major injuries and became trapped in his vehicle. Modesto firefighters extricated him, but he died on scene, Modesto police said in a report.

Meanwhile, both Miguel Zapien and the driver of the Ford F-150 pickup truck suffered minor injuries.

Investigators with the Modesto Police Department suspected Miguel Zapien was DUI. He was treated for his injuries before being arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and vehicular manslaughter charges. Police booked him into the Stanislaus County Jail.

Our thoughts and prayers extend to the family of Erick Davalos as they cope with this tragedy.

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.
