Humboldt, California (December 19, 2019) – The authorities have disclosed the identities of two drivers who were killed in a car accident on Highway 101 in Humboldt County on Wednesday morning.

The fatal collision occurred at about 9:20 a.m. on Highway 101 near Benbow Drive, according to a local news source.

32-year-old Teiwaz Steenblock-Smith was reportedly driving a 1994 Honda Accord northbound on Highway 101 when he crossed into the southbound lanes and collided head-on with a 2017 Toyota Prius driven by 44-year-old Jamie Mae Sanchez.

Both drivers were declared dead at the scene.

Two dogs inside the Honda were also killed in the accident.

 The authorities were yet to determine whether drugs and alcohol were factors in the accident.

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.”
