Teen Dies in Porterville Bicycle Crash on Newcomb Street and Olive Avenue

Porterville, California – A teen was killed in a Porterville hit-and-run crash that took place in the area of Newcomb Street and Olive Avenue on Friday, October 16.

Just before 10:38 p.m., CHP said a 15-year-old Porterville boy was riding a bicycle south on North Newcomb Street in the east crosswalk when he was hit by a 2020 Can Am Maverick XRC traveling west on West Olive Avenue.

The vehicle was being driven by H. Torres, who fled the scene after the accident. He was later apprehended by the authorities.

The teen suffered major injuries and was rushed to Sierra View District Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased at 11:32 p.m.

The accident is 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.”
