Thelma Tracy suspected of DUI and wrongful death of bicyclist 21 years old killed in car crash.

LAKE ELSINORE, California (October 12, 2015) — A 21-year-old Murrieta man riding a bicycle died following a car crash Friday night when a suspected DUI driver struck him from behind on Railroad Canyon Road, just south of Summerhill Drive, a report by the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner said.

Paramedics responded to the crash about 8:58 p.m. and quickly transported the injured rider to a local hospital, but sadly he died the following day of his injuries.

The suspected drunken driver was identified as Thelma Trachy, 75, of Murrieta. She was arrested and taken to Southwest Detention Center.

Witnesses are asked to contact the Lake Elsinore Police Department at (951) 776-1099.

“This is absolutely no valid reason for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” said Attorney James Johnson. “A young man with his whole life ahead of him has died. It didn’t have to happen. Period. If you are drunk, take a taxi or Uber, call a friend or family member, get a hotel or stay over where you are until you sober up.”

If you are the victim of a drunk driver or have lost a loved one and you want justice, call Johnson Attorneys Group at 800-235-6801 for a free consultation. Our law firm is a proud supporter of (MADD) Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

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.

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.
