Arroyo Grande, California – Esteban Zuniga, 29, of Grover Beach has been identified by the CHP as the bicycle rider who was killed in an Arroyo Grande crash on Highway 101 just north of the East Grande Avenue off-ramp on Thursday afternoon.

The deadly accident took place at around 2:20 p.m. December 3.

Zuniga was ejected into the center median and died at the scene. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

The driver of the Honda, a 28-year-old Santa Maria man, stayed at the scene after the crash. 

The southbound lanes of the highway were temporarily shut down for the investigation.

Alcohol and drugs were not suspected in the crash.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing.

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.”
