According to the California Highway Patrol, four vehicles were involved in the crash, which occurred at around 2:30 a.m. September 7, on Interstate 80 near Oday Road off-ramp.

As per the report, a white BMW 238i driven by Nicholas Nguyen, 16, of Suisun City and a blue Audi A5 operated by Lopez, collided in the westbound side of Interstate 80. The two drivers pulled off to the center median to exchange information after the crash. 

As they were doing so, a Toyota Camry driven by Zelaya crashed into the BMW, after which the vehicles struck the parties standing in the median. Shortly after, a gray Honda Civic driven by Shaikh crashed into one of the vehicles.

Nguyen was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Lopez and Shaikh sustained minor injuries while Zelaya had moderate injuries.

The injured parties were taken to North Bay Medical Center in Fairfield.

The authorities are investigating the wreck.

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.”

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.”
