Michael Kain Dead, Andre Turnley Injured in San Jacinto Accident

SAN JACINTO (August 22, 2017) – A 51-year-old man killed in an alleged street racing crash on Highway 79 Sunday has been identified as Michael Kain, according to The Press Enterprise.

Riverside County Coroner’s Office said Kain was rushed to Riverside University Health Systems Medical Center where he later died. He was from Hemet.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol reported that the accident occurred about 1:40 p.m. on northbound Highway 79, also known as Sanderson Avenue. It took place half-mile south of Gilman Springs Road.

Officers affirmed that 23-year-old Cabazon resident Albert Ochoa was driving a silver Nissan 300 north on Highway 79 when he crossed into oncoming traffic and slammed into a Hyundai Elantra driven by Kain.

San Jacinto Fatal Suspected Street Racing Crash

The Hyundai was then apparently rear ended by a Honda Accord. The Honda was operated by 50-year-old Hemet resident Andre Turnley who was traveling behind Kain at the time.

According to CHP, Ochoa was seriously injured and was taken to the hospital for treatment. Turnley was also hospitalized with injuries considered as minor.

Meanwhile, witnesses claimed that the Nissan and a red Dodge Charger were both headed north on Sanderson Avenue prior to the deadly collision. The two were believed to have been involved in a speed contest.

The Dodge’s driver left but returned to the scene and contacted the authorities. The incident remains under investigation.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the friends and family members of Mr. Michael Kain during such a difficult time.


If the investigation proves that the tragic collision was caused by street racing, the family of Mr. Michael Kain and the other injured driver will have the right to pursue a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit respectively against the at-fault parties. Motorists in general are obliged to practice road safety precautions and obey traffic laws to avoid deadly accidents. In this case, the alleged street racers likely disregarded the safety of others and led to the death and injury of the innocent victims.

The victims and their families will need a professional representative in court to help them obtain the justice and maximum compensation for all the hospital bills, medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income and pain and suffering. No amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one or the trauma of any wounded person, however, it is important that the victims and their families know their legal rights.

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.
