Man Killed in a Head-On Collision on East Mission Road in Fallbrook

Fallbrook, California – The California Highway Patrol responded to a head-on collision on East Mission Road in Fallbrook that claimed the life of a 55-year-old Fallbrook man and left a 47-year-old woman injured.

As per the police, a Fallbrook woman was driving a Ford Mustang westbound on East Mission Road while at the same time a Fallbrook man was traveling eastbound in a Toyota  Tacoma truck.

For unknown reasons, the Mustang driver crossed a double yellow line directly into the path of the Toyota and the cars crashed head-on.

CHP said the crash occurred on Monday afternoon around 1:20 p.m. near Live Oak Park Road and the Megan’s Bluff neighborhood.

Both drivers were trapped inside their vehicles following the impact of the crash and were extricated using the Jaws of Life.

The male driver suffered critical injuries and was flown to Palomar Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The Tacoma driver was determined to have been driving under the influence of unspecified drugs and was arrested. Police said she was then released to Palomar Medical Center for treatment.

CHP is investigating the incident.

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.”
