Rosie Figueroa Killed in DUI Car Crash on Davis Road in Salinas


Salinas, California (December 22, 2019) – An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of DUI in connection with a fatal car crash that occurred on Friday night in Salinas.

The accident happened on Davis Road at an unspecified time.

The California Highway Patrol said Jacques Clarke was driving a Mazda 6 northbound on Davis Road when he rear-ended a Toyota Camry driven by 38-year-old Rosie Figueroa.

The impact of the collision sent the Toyota off the roadway where it crashed into a tree.

Figueroa, a resident of Salinas, was killed in the collision while her unidentified female passenger was transported to Natividad with major injuries.

Clarke was arrested and booked into the Monterey County Jail for vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

No other information was provided.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing.

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.
