Jarred Taverney Dead, Jesus Arzate Injured in Fatal Crash

NUEVO (August 21, 2017)- According to the Riverside County News Source, a deadly collision involving a big rig and a sedan was reported Friday, August 18, on Ramona Expressway in the Lakeview community.

The crash occurred at roughly 6:22 p.m. when the driver of the sedan identified as Jarred Taverney, 18, of San Jacinto, made a turn directly into the path of an oncoming semi-truck triggering a fiery crash.

The Riverside County, California Highway Patrol, and San Jacinto Police Department were all called to the scene of the wreck where Good Samaritans had stopped their vehicles in an attempt to help the victims involved.

Jarred Taverney Accident

Per the article, both vehicles were engulfed in flames as firefighters confirmed the 18-year-old driver of the sedan was sadly declared deceased at the scene.

Meanwhile, 47-year-old truck driver Jesus Arzate was rescued from inside as the vehicle continued to burn intensively. The man was rushed to Riverside University Med Center with alleged serious injuries. His condition has not been updated at this time.

Ramona Expressway between Bridge Street and Davis Avenue remained completely shut down for several hours while flames were extinguished and wreckage was removed from off the road.

No further details have been provided at this time as the incident is currently under investigation by California Highway Patrol- Riverside division.


A forensic examination of both the vehicle and the big rig, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not either of the drivers was under the influence at the time of the accident? Was either driver driving recklessly or over the speed limit prior to impact? What were the road conditions and how was the lighting in the vicinity of where the accident occurred? A government that fails to ensure the safety for drivers and pedestrians due to poor road design or failure to maintain street lighting may also have some responsibility. Each of these factors will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.

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.

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.

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.
