West Los Angeles, California – 22-year-old Elson Salgado of Los Angeles is the man who died Monday morning in a single-car crash on 405 Freeway in West Los Angeles.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Salgado was driving a 2008 Audi A4 southbound at high speeds when he failed to negotiate the curve of an offramp. The car crashed at the Venice Boulevard offramp.

The California Highway Patrol said the accident was reported at around 4:50 a.m., August 24.

Salgado was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the police report.

A 20-year-old female passenger from Los Angeles suffered serious injuries and was taken to the hospital for treatment. Her name and current condition are unknown.

The CHP issued a SigAlert blocking the offramp to allow investigators to examine the scene. The offramp was reopened at 11 a.m.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

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.”
