WOODLAND: Matthew Gonzales Killed in Crash at Woodland and Palm Avenues; Trevor Wright Arrested

WOODLAND: Matthew Gonzales Killed in Crash at Woodland and Palm AvenuesWOODLAND, California — According to an article by KCRA, 16-year-old Matthew Gonzales died after a police chase ended in a car crash at Woodland and Palm avenues in Yolo County.

On March 2, Woodland police saw a Gonzales, a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old, identified as Trevor James Wright, getting into a vehicle about 3:50 p.m. on Wisconsin Avenue. The police then launched a pursuit as they were trying to arrest one from the mentioned parties.

Wright was driving the vehicle when he saw the police cars following them, and he decided to take off at a high rate of speed.

At the intersection, Wright lost control, sent the car airborne, and ended hitting a parked vehicle and a tree.

Gonzales and the 17-year-old passenger were both extricated from the wreck and taken to UC Medical Center. Gonzales died at the hospital while the other teen was being treated in unstable condition, as per KCRA.

Officials affirmed Wright was taken into custody following the incident on several charges—including vehicular manslaughter, eluding a peace officer causing death, felony hit-and-run and driving under the influence of a drug causing bodily injury.


The Johnson Attorneys Group’s prayers and thoughts rest with the family members and friends of Mr. Matthew Gonzales,  Mr. Trevor Wright, and the injured.

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.

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.
