41-Year-Old David Lawson Killed in Highway 99 Crash in Modesto

Modesto, California – 41-year-old Modesto resident David Lawson was the pedestrian who was killed in a Modesto accident involving at least two cars early Monday morning, according to the coroner’s office.

Lawson was pronounced deceased at the site of the accident.

Just before 3 a.m., police said Lawson was walking across northbound Highway 99 when a vehicle struck him just north of the over-crossing at Sierra Drive.

The force of the crash sent Lawson into the middle lane and he was hit a second time by a 1998 Ford Mustang.

The driver of the Ford lost control following the accident and ended up crashing into the guardrail. The driver was not injured.

The driver who initially hit Lawson left the scene.

The search is on for that  driver.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney 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. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

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. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
