Jose Garcia Hospitalized after Hawthorne Bicycle Crash on Doty and Rosecrans Avenues

Hawthorne, California – Jose Luis Garcia, 15, was hospitalized with major injuries after being involved in a Hawthorne hit-and-run crash in the area of Doty and Rosecrans avenues Friday morning.

According to Hawthorne police, a driver fled the scene after hitting Garcia, who was riding his bike just before 7:30 a.m. October 2. Investigators believe Garcia was riding his bicycle north across Rosecrans Avenue in a crosswalk when he was struck by a white four-door Toyota sedan traveling eastbound.

The driver was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to stop for a red light at the intersection.

Emergency crews responded to the crash and attended to Garcia. He was then transported to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center with serious injuries including a head injury, broken right arm, broken left leg, and fractures to his ankles and feet. 

Police said the car may possibly have been a Camry.

The search is ongoing for the hit-and-run motorist.

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.”
