Woman Critically Injured in Car Crash at Paraiso Avenue and Jamacha Boulevard in Spring Valley

Woman Suffers Life-Threatening Injuries in Spring Valley Car Accident at Paraiso Avenue and San Jamacha Boulevard

Spring Valley, California (May 14, 2020) – A woman was critically injured Wednesday morning in a traffic accident in Spring Valley, authorities reported.

The California Highway Patrol said the wreck happened at the intersection of Paraiso Avenue and Jamacha Boulevard just after 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, May 13.

According to the CHP, a 2009 Honda Accord, driven by Eric Fernandez Bravo, 19, of Spring Valley, collided with a Toyota Camry near the intersection of Paraiso Avenue and San Francisco Street. After the collision, Bravo failed to stop at the scene and continued heading southbound on Paraiso Avenue.

Bravo allegedly ran a red light at the Spring Valley intersection and broadsided a 2010 Volkswagen CC that was heading eastbound on Jamacha Boulevard. Due to the impact, both sedans slammed into two parked vehicles.

A male passenger in Bravo’s car fled the scene on foot after the collision, authorities said.

The female driver of the Volkswagen sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.

Bravo was also transported to Scripps Mercy Hospital for treatment of minor injuries before being booked into the county jail on suspicion of hit-and-run and reckless driving causing injury.

The accident 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.
