Merced County, California – An investigation is ongoing following a deadly Merced County pedestrian crash that occurred on Highway 99 early Wednesday morning. The victim has been identified as Charlene Webb, 30, of Las Vegas, Nevada, according to the Merced County Coroner’s Office. 

At around 12:30 a.m. August 5, authorities received a report of an incident on southbound Highway 99 south of Sultana Drive.

According to preliminary investigation, Webb and a man were in a vehicle traveling on southbound Highway 99 when the vehicle stopped on the side of the freeway. Webb then got out and ran across the freeway.

Webb went over the metal guardrail and as she tried to cross the northbound lanes, she was hit by a Toyota SUV.

Authorities said Webb was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota remained at the scene and cooperated with the authorities.

The CHP is handling the investigation.

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.”
