Mark Kristofferson killed Tour de Palm Springs accident Dillon Road

Tour de Palm Springs Bicyclist Mark Kristofferson, 49, Hit and Killed by Speeding Car

INDIO HILLS, Riverside County (February 11, 2018) – A Tour de Palm Springs bicyclist killed after being struck by a car Saturday morning has been identified as Mark Kristofferson, according to The Desert Sun.

Riverside County Coroner’s Office said the 49-year-old cyclist was from Lake Stevens, Washington.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol reported that several bicyclists participating in the Tour de Palm Springs were going east on Dillon Road when Kristofferson and another rider were hit by a 2006 Ford 500.

Kristofferson died at the scene. The accident was reported at 9:25 a.m., south of Tinker Road.

CHP affirmed that the driver of the Ford, 21-year-old Ronnie R. Huerta Jr., was traveling at a high rate of speed when he approached the westbound lane and drove off the roadway onto the dirt shoulder. The Desert Hot Spring man lost control of his sedan and swerved back into the path of Kristofferson and the other cyclist.

After hitting the victims, the motorist drove across the eastbound lane over a dirt berm and his vehicle rolled over. Huerta was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center with moderate injuries and was later arrested, facing a charge of vehicular manslaughter and is being detained at the Riverside County Jail in Indio.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Mark Kristofferson during such a 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.
