Tina Hoffman, Trista Hoffman and Rheinholt Eisemann Killed in La Grange Road Hit-and-Run Crash; 3 Hospitalized

Tina Hoffman, Trista Hoffman and Rheinholt Eisemann hit-and-runTUOLUMNE COUNTY, California (October 23, 2016) – Three were killed and three were hospitalized after an alleged hit-and-run crash on La Grange Road Friday afternoon, according to The Modesto Bee.

The collision occurred just before 4:30 p.m., north of Bonds Flat Road near Don Pedro Reservoir.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said 16-year-old Trista Hoffman was driving a Lexus SUV south on La Grange Road when at the same time a Toyota Camry driven by 66-year-old Dorothy Eisemann approached from the north.

Subsequently, a third unknown vehicle tried to pass the Toyota over a solid double-yellow line. The Lexus veered in an attempt to avoid the oncoming passing car and then drove into the dirt shoulder and back onto the roadway.

The SUV in the process overturned onto its right side. The Toyota then collided with the roof of the overturned Lexus.

La Grange resident Trista Hoffman and her 51-year-old mother, Tina Hoffman, were pronounced at the scene. Her 17-year-old brother, Dillon Hoffman, was seriously injured and airlifted to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto for treatment.

A fourth occupant in the SUV, 16-year-old Annie Johnson, was flown to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento with major injuries. Johnson and the Hoffman siblings were Sonora High School students.

Meanwhile, Copperopolis resident Dorothy Eisemann was also taken to Memorial Medical Center with minor wounds. Her husband, 72-year-old Rheinholt Eisemann, was flown to Sonora Regional Medial Center where he later died.

CHP affirmed that the driver of the passing vehicle fled north after the crash. That motorist could face felony no-contact hit-and-run as well as vehicular manslaughter charges.

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.
