Alberto Robledo, Erik McDaniel Hurt in End-Of-Pursuit Crash on Highway 99 in Turlock

Alberto Robledo and Erik McDaniel Suffers Injuries in Turlock 2-Vehicle Accident on Highway 99 near West Main Street

Turlock, California (April 11, 2020) – Two people sustained injuries after a police chase ended in a crash in Turlock, according to a local news source.

The California Highway Patrol Officers responded to southbound Highway 99 near West Main Street, at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, for a report of an alleged DUI driver operating a Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Authorities arrived at the location and attempted to stop the suspect, but the motorist failed to stop and a police chase ensued. According to the CHP, the pursuit exceeded speeds of 100 mph in the light traffic.

Moments later, the suspect rear-ended a slower moving 2018 Ram 5500 towing a Bigtex semi-trailer.

Firefighters along with the paramedics responded to the scene and extricated Chrysler’s driver, Alberto Robledo, 40, of Sacramento, who was trapped in the wreckage.

Robledo, who was not wearing a seatbelt at the time, was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. He was eventually arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, felony evading and driving without a valid driver’s license.

Erik McDaniel, 30 of Bakersfield, who was the driver of the Ram, sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene by the paramedics.

The crash remains under investigation.

According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary to clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.

What to Do At the Accident Scene

Nobody is ever prepared for an accident. However, knowing what to do in case you are involved in the accident is very crucial. The following steps will help you ensure your safety and the safety of others.

  1. Stay at the scene and don’t panic.
  2. Check for injuries and immediately call for an ambulance if anyone is hurt.
  3. Notify the police even if no one is injured. The police will examine the scene and document the accident. At this point, it is important to record accurate information. You can later request a police report.
  4. If the accident is minor, it is advisable to move the vehicles to the shoulder and turn on your vehicle’s hazard lights to ensure the safety of other motorists.
  5. Gather information about the other drivers involved in the accident. Also, talk to witnesses and get their information.
  6. If possible, take photos of the damage to your car and the surrounding area.
  7. Do not admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone. Do not sign any papers unless requested by the police.
  8. Do not leave the accident scene until the police have left. 

After leaving the accident scene,

  1. Contact your insurance company as soon as possible.
  2. Get a copy of the accident report from the police.
  3. Get a property damage valuation.
  4. If you were injured in the accident, keep detailed notes of your injuries and track your medical treatment.
  5. Contact a reputable personal injury attorney to protect your rights.
  6. Seek legal advice before you contact your insurer to discuss your car accident claim and compensation for your personal injuries. A qualified attorney will help you recover the maximum amount of damages.
