POINT MUGU (July 6, 2017)- According to KEYT News, a deadly head-on collision left three dead and two injured Wednesday evening on Pacific Coast Highway.

Evergreen, Colorado- Husband and Wife Killed in Violent Crash

California Highway Patrol officials report that the Mercedes had been headed southbound while the SUV had been traveling northbound before the Mercedes driver veered into the path of the SUV triggering a serious collision.

A total of four occupants were inside the SUV- Daniel Cooper, 81, and Autumn Cooper, 63 and two children ages 14 and 11. The husband and wife who were residents of Evergreen, Colorado, tragically died in the collision and were pronounced at the scene.

The two children also from Colorado were both injured. The 14-year-old girl sustained serious injuries and was rushed to Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks and remained in serious condition as of Friday morning. The boy was moderately injured and taken to Ventura County Medical Center. Both were also residents visiting from Evergreen, Colorado.

Meanwhile, the driver and sole occupant of the Mercedes, a 38-year-old Culver City man ID’ed as Scott Hart, was killed and was also pronounced at the scene.

No details have been released specifying what exactly occurred leading up to the wreck as California Highway Patrol authorities investigate.

This story will be updated once more details are released.


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


Based on this news report, it appears that the Mercedes driver will be held liable for this tragedy. There are still several unanswered questions here. Was the Mercedes driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Was he traveling over the speed limit or did distracted driving play a role? Was the Mercedes driver negligent in any other way? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.

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. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
