modesto fatal dui crash tully road and rumble road; lupe cardenas arrestedMODESTO (October 27, 2016)- According to KCRA News, a deadly hit-and-run collision triggered by a DUI driver resulted in fatal injuries Wednesday afternoon near David High School.

At around 9:00 a.m., the driver of a Mercedes Benz, Lupe Cardenas, 67, had initially been in a collision where he rear-ended a woman in which he fled the scene before smashing into the driver of a Lexus.

Nieves Alejandro Romero, 29, of Merced, was allegedly unconscious with noticeable serious injuries. He was rushed to the ER, where he sadly died of his injuries a short while later.

Lupe Cardenas appeared to have been under the influence as he was hostile towards witnesses who attempted to assist him following the second crash. Cardenas had been driving at excess speeds prior to the incident.

Police officials arrested Cardenas and enforced a toxicology test at the scene on the 67-year-old man in which the results are still pending.

More information will be released pending the investigation being conducted by the Modesto Police Department.


The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mr. Romero during such difficult times.

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.

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.
