Ricardo Torres, Matthew Cruz, Andrew Gonzales San Mateo Fatal CrashRicardo Torres, Matthew Cruz, Andrew Gonzales Killed in Skyline Boulevard Accident

SAN MATEO (November 1, 2017) – Three teenagers were killed in a solo-vehicle accident on Skyline Boulevard, also known as Highway 35, early Wednesday morning.

The San Mateo County coroner’s office identified the victims as 19-year-old Ricardo Torres, of Redwood City; 18-year-old Matthew Cruz, of Redwood City; and 18-year-old Andrew Gonzales, of Menlo Park.

According to CBS SF Bay Area, the three teens were traveling in a 2010 Hyundai in the southbound side of Skyline. For an unknown reason, the Hyundai reportedly left the west side of the road and crashed into a tree. The impact forced the Hyundai to roll about 50 feet down an embankment before landing on its wheels.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol officers responded to the site at approximately 7:49 a.m. Authorities said the all three teenagers died in the crash but it was not clear whether they were pronounced deceased at the scene or at a hospital.

Meanwhile, Torres has been determined to be the driver at the time of the incident. All of the occupants were apparently wearing their seatbelts, according to news reports.

Investigators indicated that it is too early to determine whether drugs or alcohol had contributed to the collision. At this time, officials continue to determine the precise cause of the deadly accident.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact CHP Officer Brian Wester at (650) 369-6261.


We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of Mr. Ricardo Torres, Mr. Matthew Cruz, and Mr. Andrew Gonzales as they search for peace and comfort.

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.
