Octavio Rodriguez Fatal South El Monte Motorcycle Crash 60 Freeway

Octavio Rodriguez Fatal South El Monte Motorcycle Crash 60 FreewayOctavio Rodriguez ID’d as Motorcyclist Killed on 60 Freeway

SOUTH EL MONTE, California (Oct. 30, 2017) — Octavio Rodriguez, 39, of La Puente was killed when his motorcycle crashed into a stalled Prius on the 60 Pomona Freeway, according to a report by the Los Angeles County Coroner.

The rider was driving a 2013 Ducati Monster when it struck the compact car stalled in the No. 1 lane of the westbound 60 Freeway.

The crash took place about 4:35 a.m. on Sunday morning at Santa Anita Boulevard.  The rider’s motorcycle ended up underneath the disabled Prius.

Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene of the crash.  Witnesses may contact the CHP at (323) 980-0799.

Traffic Accident Investigation

Police believe the driver of the Prius, Kevin Cheung, 18, of Alhambra was driving under the influence of drugs. He was arrested and the investigation is ongoing.   The police report does not state what type of drugs were allegedly involved. Police will continue to go over the facts of this case and piece together all the evidence. There are many unanswered questions including whether the drivers were traveling within speed limits and or if mechanical problems contributed to this collision.

“Drugged driving is an epidemic on our Southern California roads,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Motorists under the influence of drugs cannot operate their vehicles safely and as in this case may cause injury or death due to their actions.”

The family of someone who has died in a crash due to a negligent motorist may wish to hire an attorney to ensure their legal rights are protected and they are fairly compensated for their losses. Johnson Attorneys Group understands this is a difficult time so we are here to help with a free consultation. Call us at 800-235-6801 and find out what steps to take.

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.
