One Person Dies in Saratoga Car Crash on Highway 85 and Saratoga Avenue

Saratoga, California – One person died and several others were injured in a Saratoga two-vehicle crash that took place at Highway 85 and Saratoga Avenue Wednesday morning.

According to authorities, a white sedan and gray pickup truck collided at the intersection just before 11:20 a.m. 

The impact of the crash sent the sedan into an embankment and it caught fire. 

A man in his 70s, who was an occupant of the sedan, died shortly after the crash.

Two other people from the sedan and two from the pickup were taken to the hospital. Three of the patients had life-threatening injuries.

The identities of the involved parties were not immediately released.

Two other parties sustained minor injuries. The two were witnesses to the crash and they were both treated at the scene.

The cause of the collision is currently under investigation. 


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.”
