Man Killed in DUI Car Accident on 5 Freeway near Lake Boulevard in Redding


Redding, California (February 15, 2020) – A woman has been arrested on suspicion of DUI following a fatal car accident that killed a 20-year-old man in Redding on Friday morning.

The car accident happened on Interstate 5 Freeway near Lake Boulevard at about 1:12 a.m. February 14.

The California Highway Patrol said 22-year-old Jecenia Hedrick of Anderson was driving a 2013 Honda Civic when she rear-ended a 2006 BMW.

The impact of the collision caused the CHP to flip onto its roof.

The BMW was also hit by a tractor-trailer driven by a Medford man.

The male driver of the BMW was killed in the crash.

Hedrick and her passenger, 25-year-old James Parscal of Anderson, sustained major injuries and were taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Hedrick was later arrested for felony DUI and manslaughter.

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.”
