Cecilia Delgadillo Killed in Vernalis Crash on Highway 132 in San Joaquin County

San Joaquin County, California – Cecilia M. Delgadillo, 29, of Oakland was among two people killed in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 132 in San Joaquin County Monday, according to the CHP.

At about 4 p.m. Monday, September 7, CHP said Delgadillo was driving eastbound on Highway 132, west of River Road when she tried to pass traffic and partially drifted into the westbound side.

The green 2001 Honda Civic that Delgadillo was driving made a sharp turn to the right shoulder, then began to spin counterclockwise.

The Honda then went back across both lanes and was hit by a westbound white 2000 Ford E-350 van driven by Luis C. Chicas, 46, of Redwood City.

Delgadillo died in the accident.

A 12-year-old girl who was a passenger in the Honda was also killed in the crash.

Two children, aged 2 and 8, were seriously hurt in the crash.

Chicas was taken to San Joaquin General Hospital in French Camp with major injuries. His passenger, Irvin Z. Medina, 34, of Redwood City, was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

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.”

Mr. Khodaverdian is the recipient of numerous accolades including one of the: Top 10 Wrongful Death Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Motor Vehicle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Truck Accident Settlements in CA in 2019, and Top 10 Motorcycle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019.
