La Jolla, California – One of the victims of a deadly La Jolla accident that happened in the 1000 block of Torrey Pines Road has been identified as Matthew Singleton Cate Jr., 19, according to authorities.

At around 3:16 a.m. November 22, according to the San Diego Police Department, a 26-year-old man was driving a Nissan Altima westbound on Girard Avenue at a high rate of high speed.

While making a left turn onto Girard Avenue, the driver lost control of the car and crashed into a palm tree.

Cate was a passenger in the car and died in the crash. Another passenger, Jaden Rowley, 22, was also killed in the accident.

The Nissan’s driver was injured and was taken to a hospital for treatment. He was placed under arrest for DUI.

The accident is under investigation.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner 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 to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

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. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
