LLANO, Los Angeles County (March 12, 2017) – Two were killed and three were seriously injured in a head-on crash on Highway 138 Saturday evening, according to ABC 7 News.

The accident involving two vehicles took place about 6:45 p.m. at 175th Street East.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a 22-year-old man identified as Jesse Sandoval was allegedly driving a 1998 Chevrolet Camaro Camaro at a high rate of speed when he lost control in a curve. The Camaro then spun into an oncoming lane and collided head-on with a 2012 Ford Fusion.

The impact caused the Fusion to be cut in half. Its passenger, Miriam Yudith Contreras, 29, of Palmdale, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Fusion, Gustavo Escobedo, 31, of Palmdale, operating the Fusion at the time and two other occupants, girls ages 4 and 10, suffered major injuries following the wreck.

The children were flown to Northridge Hospital Medical Center while Escobedo was taken to Antelope Valley Hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile, Sandoval was pronounced at the scene.

CHP added that a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser struck the overturned Camaro amid low visibility. Its driver Richard Saylor, 74, sustained minor injuries.

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.

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.

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.
