 Noe Bryan Martinez, 22, Arrested Fatal Wasco Hit-and-run Bicycle Crash Palm and Gromer AvenuesSuspected Hit-and-run Driver Arrested Charged with Vehicular Manslaughter

WASCO, Calif. (Feb. 9, 2018)- Noe Bryan Martinez, 22, of Wasco, has been arrested following a collision where he struck and killed a bicyclist Thursday afternoon and then fled the scene, according to a report by the Bakersfield Californian.

The suspect is being held in lieu of $70,000 bail and faces charges of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and hit-and-run resulting in an injury. His next hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 13th at the North Division, Delano, division/department Z., according to Kern County Sheriff’s Department records.

The fatal crash took place about 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 8 at Palm Avenue north of Gromer Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The identity of the bicyclist has not been disclosed.

Police contend that Martinez was driving northbound on Palm Avenue at a speed upwards of 80 mph when he passed a Honda at the intersection with Gromer Avenue. The bicyclist was riding south on Palm Avenue near the center of the road when they were struck by his vehicle.

Initially, Martinez reportedly stopped and got out of his vehicle and went over to look at the rider. Next, he got back into his vehicle and fled north on Palm Avenue.


Kern County Wrongful Death Lawyer

An investigation into this collision is underway and criminal charges have been filed against the suspect, but the family of a victim killed in a crash may also file a separate civil lawsuit. If a negligent driver caused a collision that left you with injuries or the loss of a loved one, you may have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim even when they know their insured is responsible. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed. This is unacceptable.

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. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
