Fullerton, California -The Orange County coroner’s office released the names of two victims of a Thursday night fatal Fullerton car crash.

Shirley Albavera, 28, of Anaheim, and Saul Bahena Jr., 30, from Ontario, were killed in a solo car crash on 57 Freeway just south of Chapman Avenue.

The crash happened at about 11:20 p.m.

Albavera was driving a Honda Accord southbound on the freeway when, for unknown reasons, swerved to the right and crossed all lanes.

The Honda crashed into a concrete wall and then overturned due to the impact of the crash.

Albavera and her passenger, Bahena, were killed in the crash.

Another male passenger, 30-year-old from Anaheim, was rushed to UCI Medical Center with major injuries.

CHP is investigating the incident.

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.

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.”
