San Jose Teen Killed in Highway 101 Crash ; 2 Injured

 Teen Dies in Crash on Highway 101 in San Jose; Driver, 16, Badly InjuredSAN JOSE, Calif. (May 21, 2018) — Jonathan Carrillo Lorenzana, 19, was killed and a 16-year-old driver was critically injured in a collision involving multiple drivers early Sunday morning on the northbound U.S. Highway 101, the San Jose Mercury News said.

The Acura TL the teens were riding in was struck by an oncoming motorist on the highway. The crash took place shortly after the vehicle jumped the curb in a solo crash on the Oakland Road on ramp. The vehicle veered over onto the highway where it came to rest between the Nos. 1 and 2 lanes about 1:13 a.m.

A 2007 Toyota Camry, driven by a 69-year-old San Jose man, was reportedly traveling about 65 mph and was unable to avoid the Acura and crashed into the disabled vehicle. Then a white van crashed into one of the vehicles and swerved and struck a fourth car.

An 19-year-old Acura passenger died at the scene. The 16-year-old Acura driver suffered fractures to both his ankles and was taken to the hospital. Both teenagers were from San Jose.

Also injured in the collision was the 69-year-old driver in the Toyota who was treated and released.

There were no other injuries reported, however, the driver of the white van was found to be under the influence of alcohol.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer J. Berry at (408) 467-5400.

No Fees Unless You Win

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
