VENTURA, California (July 27, 2017) — Rachel Cline and Brandon Thompson have been identified as the couple who were killed Wednesday in a collision involving a wrong-way driver on the southbound U.S. 101 Freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Police say the wrong-way driver was a 34-year-old Santa Paula man. The driver of the Nissan was identified as Brandon Thompson, 25, of Riverside and his passenger, was Rachel Cline, 28, of Lake Elsinore.

The crash involved two motorists late Wednesday night around midnight. Police say a driver in a black Scion was speeding at above 100 mph when they slammed into a Nissan Versa. The man and woman in the Nissan died along with their dog. The crash took place about a mile south of Seaward Avenue.

The families of the victims have set up a Go Fund Me site to help them with the financial costs.

101 Freeway Crash Under Investigation

Police say a third vehicle was also struck, just prior to the fatal crash, but fortunately only lost their side mirror.

The Ventura Fire Department responded to help the victims and pulled them from the mangled vehicles. One of the cars went over a guardrail onto the Lemon Grove bridge and the other was found about 150 feet north of where impact occurred. All those killed in the crash were believed to be under 30 years old, police said.

The crash remains under investigation by police.

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.
