Wasco, California – Two people who were killed in a Wasco semi-truck accident on Highway 43 Wednesday morning, have been identified as Yuleny Elizabeth Castrejon Diaz,29, and Martha Rosana Martinez-Rojas,31.

The big rig and a passenger vehicle collided near McCombs Avenue at around 6:28 a.m. on September 30.

According to CHP, the big rig was pulling a set of bottom dump trailers southbound on Highway 43 when it collided with a Honda Civic that entered the intersection of McCombs Avenue heading west.

Castrejon Diaz and Martinez-Rojas were riding in the Honda and were pinned under the truck. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

All northbound lanes of Highway 43 were closed and traffic was diverted to Highway 46.

Southbound lanes were also affected, and drivers were advised to use McCombs Avenue.

More details about the collision were not provided.

The CHP is investigating the crash.

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.”
