Jonathan Mulkey Killed, Passenger Injured in Oakhurst Accident on Road 426 and Meadow View Drive

Oakhurst, California – A driver died while a passenger was injured in a suspected DUI Oakhurst crash that happened at around 9:30 p.m. on November 28, according to the CHP.

The two were in a 1998 Toyota Tacoma traveling westbound on Road 426 at a high rate of speed. When it came to a curve near Meadow View Drive, the driver failed to keep the Tacoma in the roadway and went down an embankment.

The Tacoma reportedly overturned and the driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver was identified as Jonathan Mulkey, 22.

A passenger in the vehicle was flown to Community Regional Medical Center with moderate injuries.

Alcohol is believed to have played a role in the collision, CHP said.

The crash 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.”
