 Ezekiel Beas Fatal Crash Interstate 5 Freeway, La Costa Ave in EncinitasTeenager Killed in Crash on I-5 Freeway in Encinitas

ENCINITAS, Calif. (March 23, 2022) — Ezekiel Beas, 19, of Vista, died in a crash involving a suspected DUI driver on the Interstate 5 Freeway early Wednesday at La Costa Avenue.

The deadly, two-vehicle crash happened in the northbound lanes about 2:40 a.m. on March 23rd, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Isidrone Martinez was driving the Honda Civic with Ezekiel Beas and three other passengers as they traveled northbound on the I-5 Freeway. The vehicle approached a Caltrans construction zone and a hard closure. Two right lanes were closed, however, the Oceanside man reportedly drove into the construction zone.

The driver allegedly veered left toward the No. 2 lane. That’s when he crashed into the right rear of a gray Toyota Prius operated by a driver working for Uber. Upon impact, the Honda veered towards the right side and went up an embankment. The Honda overturned multiple times.

Vista Teen Killed, 6 Injured in Encinitas Crash

Ezekiel Beas was apparently not wearing a seat belt and was one of two ejected from the vehicle. He landed in the No. 3 lane and was hit by an oncoming vehicle. Sadly, the Vista teen died at the scene.

Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to rescue some of the the people trapped in the overturned vehicle.

Meanwhile, Martinez suffered major injuries and paramedics took him to a hospital.  Additionally, his three other passengers suffered major injuries in the Encinitas crash. Paramedics transported a 20-year-old Oceanside man, a 20-year-old Oceanside woman and a 22-year-old Valley Center woman to the hospital. Furthermore, the 33-year-old San Diego man driving the Uber and his 33-year-old male passenger were treated for minor injuries.

CHP officers requested the closure of all northbound lanes on the Interstate 5 Freeway due to the crash and subsequent investigation.  Authorities redirected traffic off the Freeway at the La Costa Avenue ramp.

Police arrested the driver of the first vehicle on suspicion of drunken driving., but he could face other charges as well.

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.
