Man Killed, Deville Daggs Arrested after Oakland Traffic Crash on Interstate Highway 580

Oakland, California – Deville Daggs, 30, of Oakland was arrested following an Oakland wrong-way accident that left one person dead on Interstate Highway 580 early Monday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Daggs was driving a black Chevrolet Suburban on I-580 at Fruitvale Avenue when he failed to stop for CHP officers, who saw that he was traveling at an unsafe speed and did not have license plates.  

The officers pursued Daggs and at MacArthur Boulevard, he turned into the eastbound lanes and continued heading west. At that point, the officers stopped the chase.

Shortly after, Daggs collided head-on with an oncoming Honda minivan just west of 35th Avenue.

The driver of the minivan, a man in his 30s, died following the accident.

A female passenger in the minivan had major injuries and was taken to Highland Hospital.

Daggs reportedly tried to flee on foot but was arrested. He was taken to Highland Hospital or treatment of moderate injuries.

Authorities said Daggs will be booked at the Santa Rita Jail when he is released from the hospital. 

The incident 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.”
