Garrett Engle and Lauren Engle in Yucaipa Car CrashGarrett Engle Killed; Lauren Engle and Kenneth Mayle Injured in Yucaipa Crash

YUCAIPA (August 8, 2017) – A man and a dog were killed and three people were injured in a traffic collision on Sand Canyon Road Sunday night, August 6, according to The San Bernardino Sun.

The accident involving three vehicles took place around 9 p.m on Sand Canyon Road at Yucaipa Boulevard.

As per the article, a statement released by the sheriff’s department said 18-year-old Cameron Cheek was driving a 2001 Toyota Tundra pickup truck west on Sand Canyon when he allegedly accelerated and tried to beat the yellow light.

Yucaipa Fatal Car Accident

The signal then changed to red before Cheek entered the intersection. The pickup struck the driver’s door of a 2015 Kia Optima which was headed south at the time.

The impact of the crash forced the Kia into another car waiting to make a left from 14th Street. The driver of the Kia, 29-year-old Garrett Engle, died at the scene.

His wife, 26-year-old Yucaipa resident Lauren Engle, was rushed to a local hospital and was listed in critical condition. Their dog was also found dead after being ejected from their vehicle.

Deputies affirmed that Cheek was hospitalized with moderate injuries. The 62-year-old man driving the third car, Kenneth Mayle, complained of pain while his passenger was unharmed.

Meanwhile, authorities believed that alcohol or drugs did not play a role in the incident which remains under investigation.


We offer our sincerest thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Mr. Garrett Engle and we wish the injured victims at this time a swift and full recovery.

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. 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.
