NORTH HILLS: Man, 37, Killed, 8 Injured in Haskell Ave Rollover Crash

Hit and run crash North Hills on Haskell AvenueNORTH HILLS, California (April 18, 2016) — A 37-year-old riding in a white minivan carrying eight people was killed and eight others including four children were seriously injured Sunday afternoon when the van was hit by a speeding SUV at 8700 Haskell Avenue, at Parthenia Street, a Los Angeles Fire Department report said.

UPDATE: The man who died has been identified as Jose Luis Garcia Alonso.

The crash took place about 1:05 p.m. The white 2000 Toyota 4Runner’s 20-year-old female driver identified as Saidy Samayoa was fleeing an earlier crash when she struck the minivan and it overturned onto its roof.

The first collision took place when the SUV allegedly made a U-turn in front of another car. The victim in that crash suffered a broken arm and internal injuries. Despite her injuries, that driver briefly followed the suspect until the SUV began speeding away. At some point, the suspect’s vehicle was traveling westbound on Parthenia Street and that is when it struck the minivan which was heading northbound on Haskell Avenue.

The two vehicles collided in a violent crash that prompted a response by more than 60 firefighters, the LAFD reported. Eight of the nine injured suffered critical injured and multiple victims were ejected in the crash. The children were ages 4 to 12 years old, ABC News reported. The children who are ages 8 and 10 years old suffered major injuries. Two of the injured were passengers in the SUV.

Both helicopters and ground ambulances rushed the nine victims including three or four children to local hospitals and a pediatric trauma center for treatment of major injuries.

The Mayors Crisis Response Team was also sent to the hospital to help family members of the victims cope with the tragedy.

The driver of the Toyota 4Runner will most likely face multiple felony charges including hit-and-run causing major injuries and death.

The LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division is heading up an investigation into the fatal crash and is asking witnesses to contact them at (818) 644-8020.

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.

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.
