Richard Benedetti Seriously Hurt in Highway 29 Crash in Napa

Napa, California – 34-year-old Richard Benedetti of Danville was seriously injured in a fatal crash in Napa Wednesday afternoon, according to CHP.

At around 12:35 p.m. December 23, CHP said 40-year-old Sean Spurlock of Clear Lake was driving a 2006 Lexus southbound on Highway 29 when he went across the solid double yellow lines and collided head-on with an oncoming 2013 Lexus driven by 35-year-old Steven Benedetti of Danville. 

The crash happened north of Robert Louis Stevenson State Park and Mount St. Helena.

50-year-old Jassin Williams of Clearlake, who was a passenger in the 2006 Lexus, died at the site of the accident. 

Steven Benedetti had major injuries and was transported by ambulance to Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa. His passenger, Richard Benedetti, also had major injuries and was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

Spurlock was airlifted to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital with major injuries.

An investigation into the incident 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.

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.”
