Mike Zareski and Robert Sterling Killed in Plane Crash; Dawn Sterling and Pilot Injured

SAN DIEGO (December 13, 2017) – Two were killed and two others were injured after a plane crashed in the Clairemont neighborhood Saturday, December 9, according to NBC San Diego and San Diego Union-Tribune.

The deceased victims have been identified as Dr. Mike Zareski and Robert Sterling. The wounded parties include the pilot and Dawn Sterling.

As per the reports, all four were aboard a single-engine Beech B36 Bonanza plane which took off from Montgomery Field at about 4:30 p.m.

The pilot then reported an engine failure and the six-seat plane ultimately crash-landed in a baseball field next to Lafayette Elementary School. The plane skidded into a home and became engulfed in flames.

According to an initial investigation, the pilot apparently attempted to land in the open space of the schoolyard and adjacent park. However the plane struck the ground upright, continued 100 to 200 yards and plowed through at least one fence before hitting the house.

Meanwhile, Zareski and the Stellings were in San Diego for a veterinary convention. The plane was owned by Altitude Aviation Inc. in Hermosa Beach, California.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the deceased victims during such a difficult time. We also extend our thoughts to those injured and wish them a swift and full recovery.

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.
