Sonoma, California (November 2, 2019) – Two girls were injured in a car accident in Sonoma on Thursday night.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the accident happened at about 7 p.m. October 31, on Riverside Drive at Cherry Avenue.

Agustin Mendoza was reportedly driving a Chevrolet Tahoe north on Riverside Drive when he crashed into a parked car for unknown reasons.

The impact of the collision pushed the parked car into two girls aged 10 and 16.

The 10-year-old girl was seriously injured while the 16-year-old girl is reported to have sustained minor injuries in the accident. The two were taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

Mendoza reportedly fled the scene after the accident but was later located and arrested. He was transported to Sonoma Valley Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

No further information was provided.

An investigation to determine the cause of 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.”
