RIVERSIDE (October 10, 2017) – A suspected DUI crash on El Soberante Road near Lake Mathews killed one and injured four others early Sunday, October 8, according to The Press Telegram.

The accident involving two vehicles occurred at about 1:55 a.m. near Palm Road.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said 24-year-old Kevin McCarthy was driving a 2013 Dodge north on El Sobrante Road when he allegedly crossed the solid double yellow lines and traveled into the path of a 2015 Nissan driven by 55-year-old Long Beach resident Maria Mata.

McCarthy, of Riverside, ultimately struck the Nissan head-on.

Kevin McCarthy Arrested For DUI

Mata and two of her passengers were taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries. A fourth occupant in the Nissan, 52-year-old Long Beach resident Angelica Garcia Martinez Figueroa, was taken to Riverside Community Hospital where she died.

Meanwhile, CHP affirmed that McCarthy was also hospitalized and was later arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence.

The incident remains under investigation.


We offer our sincerest thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Ms. Angelica Garcia Martinez Figueroa during such a difficult time. We also wish Ms. Maria Mata and the other injured victims a swift and full recovery.


In this incident, it is evident that Mr. Kevin McCarthy will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that led to the death of Ms. Angelica Garcia Martinez Figueroa and injuries of Ms. Maria Mata and two others. The suspect is accused of driving under the influence which is considered as a serious crime throughout the state.

Mr. McCarthy has disregarded the safety of others on the road as his actions took the life of an innocent woman.

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. 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.
