GOLETA: Hit-and-Run Crash Fatally Injures Pedestrian, Miguel Gutierrez Vargas, on San Lorenzo Drive

Goleta hit and run pedestrian accidentGOLETA, California (July 14, 2016) — A pedestrian identified as Miguel Gutierrez Vargas, 88, was killed by a hit-and-run driver Thursday morning on San Lorenzo Drive, a Noozhawk report said.

The crash took place about 5:55 a.m.

KEYT News report that the driver of an older model maroon Chevy pickup truck was the vehicle involved that struck Vargas.

Vargas was rushed to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital with multiple broken bones and severe internal bleeding. He died later in the day.

A witness who saw the incident take place stated that the driver took a turn too quickly and likely did not see the victim as he was still in a crosswalk before hitting him.

California Highway Patrol told Noozhawk that the suspect, 66-year-old Juan Aguilar Perez, was arrested Friday and booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter and hit-and-run causing injuries or death, with a bail set at $50,000.


Our thoughts and prayers remain with the innocent Mr. Vargas who has suffered injuries.We wish him a swift and full recovery and hope the suspect responsible for this act is found.

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.
