32-year-old Joshua Steven Meyer reportedly attempted to
steal a car from a private driveway when he was confronted by the owner.
Meyer sped off in the stolen vehicle before he collided with
a second car on Del Rio Road.
An occupant of the second vehicle was seriously injured in the
accident and was hospitalized. The identity of the victim was not disclosed.
Meyer was located and arrested on Wednesday.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”
While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
