Cambria Soto Killed, Alexis Tapia Arrested after Porterville Crash on Cobb Street

Porterville, California – Cambria Soto, 13, was killed in a Porterville accident where a suspected DUI driver slammed into a home along Cobb Street early Sunday morning, according to the Porterville police.

Alexis Mendoza Tapia, 19, was reportedly speeding down Cobb Street when he jumped a curb, traveled through a fence, and slammed into an apartment.

The crash occurred at around 3:45 a.m. November 1.

Cambria and her grandmother were sleeping inside the apartment at the time of the accident.

Authorities said Cambria was hit by the vehicle when it crashed into the apartment.

Cambria was flown to Fresno, where she succumbed to her injuries hours later. 

Her grandmother was not injured in the accident.

Tapia was booked into the Tulare County Jail on DUI charges. He has since bailed out.

The crash is under investigation.

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.

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.”
