Ronald Stanley Olson, 76, Killed By Suspected DUI Driver in Apple Valley Pedestrian Accident

APPLE VALLEY, California (January 20, 2015) – Ronald Stanley Olson, 76, of Apple Valley was killed Friday when he was struck by a suspected DUI driver as he was gathering his mail in front of his home on Joshua Road, near Standing Rock Avenue, according to a press release by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner.

The traffic accident was reported to CHP officers about 1:20 p.m. A 26-year-old Apple Valley woman was driving a gold 2002 GMC pickup truck when she crashed into a chain-link fence and a block wall prior to hitting Mr. Olson who was standing at his mailbox in the 14800 block of Joshua Road, according to the Victor Valley Daily Press.

Apple Valley Fire paramedics responded to the crash and quickly transported him by ambulance to St. Joseph Health, St. Mary, but he later died of his injuries.

The driver of the car who hit Mr. Olson was injured in the crash and had to be cut from her mangled vehicle by firefighters at the scene. She was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center with a severely broken leg and hip injuries, news reports said. The report stated that she was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.

CHP officers are heading up an investigation into the circumstances

“My condolences go out to the family of Mr. Olson as they cope with his sudden loss,” said Attorney James Johnson. “There is no excuse for drunken driving these days.”

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. 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.
