One Killed in Newport Beach Accident on Pacific Coast Highway

Newport Beach, California – One person died and another one was arrested following a Newport Beach crash that was preceded by a police pursuit on Sunday morning.

The chase began at about 5:35 a.m. on Goldenwest Street and Ellis Avenue in Huntington Beach when police attempted to pull over a driver. The driver was operating a black Honda Accord suspected to have been stolen in Modesto.

The driver ignored the police and fled southbound on Goldenwest Street, then entered eastbound Pacific Coast Highway.

Due to the dangerous speeds, police called off the chase.  

Police in Newport Beach later received a report of a crash involving the Honda in the 3000 block of Pacific Coast Highway. The Honda rolled onto its roof and a passenger died.

The driver fled the scene but was later located and arrested. The driver was transported to Orange County Global Medical Center for treatment of major injuries.

The identities of the involved parties were not immediately released

The Huntington Beach Police Department 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.
