Salvador Llamas Dies in Fresno Collision on Highway 41 and Mt. Whitney Avenue

Fresno, California – Salvador Llamas, 52, of Riverdale, was among two people who died in a Fresno County crash near Riverdale on Friday evening.

According to the CHP, traffic was backed up at a stop light on Highway 41 and Mt. Whitney Avenue when a driver failed to stop and crashed his BMW 330i into a stopped Chevrolet Aveo.

The accident took place at around 5:10 p.m. December 18.

The impact pushed the Aveo into a stopped Ford F-350.

Llamas, who was the driver of the Aveo, was taken to a hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. His wife was a passenger in the vehicle and died at the scene. She was identified as Rasalva Chaves-Contreras, 57, of Riverdale.

The driver of the BMWi, Vikramamjit Samra, 20, of Fresno, and the third driver, a 33-year-old man from Fresno, sustained minor to moderate injuries and were treated at the scene.

Charges may be pending an ongoing 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.”
