Francisco Lopez Killed in Head-On Collision on Old River Road in Sacramento

Sacramento, California – 59-year-old Francisco Clyde Tidwell Lopez, a West Sacramento resident, is one of two people who were killed in a Sacramento head-on accident that happened Wednesday morning, according to the authorities.

Lopez was driving a Ford Fusion northbound on Old River Road at high speed when he drifted partially into the path of oncoming traffic and collided with a 2017 Ford F-150 pickup truck.

The accident was reported at around 6 p.m. on September 9, just south of County Road 124.

Lopez was pronounced dead at the scene.

The pickup driver, identified as a 76-year-old man, of West Sacramento, and his female passenger, a 73-year-old woman, were airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center. Sadly, the pickup driver succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.

The woman reportedly suffered moderate injuries.

No more details regarding the incident were available.

The incident is under investigation.

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.”
