Man Killed in Denair Car Crash on Hawkins Road ID’d as Miguel Jimenez

Denair, California – The California Highway Patrol has identified the man who was killed in a Denair Car crash on Hawkins Road on Monday Afternoon as 20-year-old Miguel Jimenez of Atwater.

According to the CHP, Jimenez was driving a 1999 Acura Coupe southbound on Hawkins Road at a high rate of speed and approaching a slow-moving vehicle.

At the same time, 32-year-old Mauricio Millanarzate from Merced was traveling northbound in a 2012 Ford pickup, approaching the two cars.

Jimenez reportedly crossed the double yellow lines into the northbound lane to pass the vehicle ahead of him. He drove directly into the path of the Ford, colliding head-on with the car.

The collision occurred at around 3:45 p.m. just north of Keyes road approximately 10 miles east of Denair.

The Ford overturned and landed on its right side, and the Acura stopped in the northbound lane after the crash.

Jimenez was killed in the crash while Millanarzate sustained minor injuries and was taken to Oak Valley Hospital for treatment.

Investigators said speed contributed to the collision.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

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.”
