1 Killed, 2 Injured in Inyokern Head-On Crash on Highway 395 and Brown Road

INYOKERN, Kern County (February 3, 2018) – A fatal traffic collision occurred in the area of Highway 395 and Brown Road late Thursday night, according to 23 ABC News.

The accident involving two vehicles took place just before 10:30 p.m.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a Saturn was going north on the two-lane highway when at the same time a Hyundai was headed south. For an unknown reason, the Hyundai collided head-on with the Saturn.

A man in his 60s driving the Saturn was immediately taken to Ridgecrest Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. His name has not been yet released pending notification of next of kin.

Meanwhile, CHP affirmed that the two people riding the Hyundai were also hospitalized with injuries considered as minor. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.


We offer our prayers and sincerest thoughts to the family and friends of the deceased during such a difficult time.


Kern County Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer

A forensic examination of both vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle, whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or simply did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the automobiles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the surviving family of the deceased may be granted the right to pursue a wrongful death claim pending the results of the investigation. Meanwhile, the injured and not found responsible for the crash may be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. Victims have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, funeral costs, pain and suffering, and lost future income, and loss of love and companionship.

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.
