Man Killed, 1 Injured in 2-Vehicle Crash on Sierra Avenue in Jurupa Valley

Man Dies, Another Hospitalized after Jurupa Valley Car Accident on Sierra Avenue near Karen Lane

Jurupa Valley, California (March 24, 2020) – A man was killed and another was injured Monday morning in a traffic accident in Jurupa Valley, according to a local news source.

The deadly crash, which was reported at around 6:52 a.m. Monday, March 23, happened on Sierra Avenue, just north of Karen Lane and involved two vehicles.

The male driver and sole occupant of one of the vehicles was declared dead at the scene. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.

The other driver was trapped in the wreckage and was freed by firefighters. He was then transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

Authorities said neither alcohol nor drugs were suspected factors in the crash.

The accident remains under investigation by the Jurupa Valley Station’s Traffic Reconstruction Team. Deputy Medina at the Jurupa Valley Station asked anyone who witnessed the crash to contact them at 951-955-2600.

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.
