WINTERHAVEN: 2 Dead, 4 Injured in Solo Crash on Interstate 8 Freeway


WINTERHAVEN, California (March 25, 2016) — Two passengers were killed and three suffered major injuries Thursday night when a driver making an unsafe turn crashed down an embankment off the Interstate 8 Freeway near Algodones Road in Imperial County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Two passengers both 34 years old from Mexico suffered fatal injuries when the vehicle crashed into an empty tractor trailer. The driver, described as a 30-year-old Calexico woman, was arrested by police. Her three other passengers ages 27, 29 and 33 who are also from Mexico suffered major injuries and were taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center treatment. The driver of the vehicle suffered moderate injuries and was also hospitalized.

Police say the woman was being followed by a Border Patrol unit when the crash took place about 7:45 p.m. She reportedly made an unsafe turn as she drove down the on ramp and lost control of the vehicle which went over an embankment before hitting the trailer.

“This woman could be charged with manslaughter and other charges for this fatal crash,” said Attorney James Johnson, a California personal injury lawyer. “My condolences go out to the families of those killed and prayers to those hurt that they may have a full recovery.”

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.

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.
