Lawrence Kerr, 71, Fatal Highway 53 Crash Lower Lake

Lawrence Kerr, 71, Fatal Highway 53 Crash Lower LakeLOWER LAKE, Calif. – Lawrence Gene Kerr, 71, of Clearlake was killed in a possible road rage collision Tuesday on Highway 53, according to CHP police reports.

Kerr was reportedly cut off by another motorist, veered off the highway, overturned and struck a tree. The crash took place about 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 24, just north of Anderson Ranch Parkway

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office identified the victim.

Juan Ramirez, 48, of Clearlake was driving a 1994 Ford pickup truck and reportedly got onto Highway 53 in front of Kerr’s 2009 Toyota.

The CHP is investigating what led to the crash, but so far they believe the vehicles somehow ended up side-by-side when Kerr lost control of his vehicle.

Kerr died of his injuries at the scene of the crash.

Police are interviewing several witnesses who saw the collision in an effort to determine liability.

One of those witnesses, Melody Hartnett of Middletown told the newspaper that she saw Ramirez pull out in front of Kerr’s vehicle as he entered the highway near Anderson Marsh. She said Mr. Kerr had to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision with the pickup truck and she also had to hit her brakes to avoid the crash. The two motorists appeared to be engaging in a road rage incident just prior to the collision.

The crash remains under investigation by police.


Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group offer our condolences to the family of Mr. Kerr at this difficult time.

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.
