One Killed, 2 Injured in Rollover Crash on Interstate 5 in San Onofre

San Onofre, California – Authorities are investigating a San Onofre car crash on Interstate 5 that left a 71-year-old Los Angeles man dead and two other people injured on Tuesday morning.
According to the California Highway Patrol, at about 5:50 a.m. on October 20, a 2002 Ford Explorer crashed and flipped several times near the San Onofre power plant.
The elderly man was ejected from the car following the impact of the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver, a 43-year-old man, the decedent son, and his mother, 70-year-old,  both from Los Angeles, suffered moderate injuries.
The mother was flown to Scripps La Jolla Hospital while her son was transported by ambulance to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo.
Alcohol and drugs did not appear to be a factor in the crash.

The CHP closed the freeway at around 6:35 a.m. to allow the helicopter to land.
All lanes were reopened as of 8:10 a.m.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

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.
