Elizabeth Vera and Joan Hoffenberg Killed in Winchester crash at Domenigoni Parkway and Highway 79; Reynaldo River and 3 Others Injured

WINCHESTER (December 23, 2016)- According to the Press-Enterprise, a deadly collision involving four vehicles took place Friday morning at precisely 9:51 a.m. at the intersection of Domenigoni Parkway and Winchester Road (Highway 79).

California Highway Patrol said 54-year-old Reynaldo Rivera was driving a Nissan Titan pickup north on Highway 79 when he attempted to make a right-hand turn onto Domenigoni.

The Winchester man failed and slammed into the concrete median on Domenigoni. The Nissan rolled and struck a 1995 Chevy Blazer stopped in the left-turn lane of Domenigoni to turn south on the highway.

The Nissan subsequently collided with a 1995 Honda Accord in a westbound lane which was forced into a Chevrolet pickup at the intersection.

As per the article, CHP affirmed the drivers of the Accord and the Blazer died at the scene. They were identified as 31-year-old Elizabeth Vera and 61-year-old Joan Hoffenberg, both of Hemet.

Rivera and a passenger, and two occupants in the Blazer were taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries. The 29-year-old Temecula man operating the Chevrolet pickup at the time, Bradley Hasseler, was unharmed.

CHP added that River was going too fast for the turn. The condition of the road which was slick after days of rain appeared to have played a role in the incident.

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.

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.
