Two Hospitalized after Chico Crash at East 9th and Main Street

Chico, California – Two drivers were hospitalized after a chase ended in a  collision in the area of East 9th and Main streets in Chico early Monday morning, according to the authorities.

A driver of a Dodge Charger reportedly failed to stop for officers, who pulled him over after running a stop sign near Palermo Road and Highway 70 in Oroville.

The officers initiated a chase after the driver fled the scene. The chase went through Highway 70, then onto Skyway in Chico and ended when the suspect collided with another vehicle at the intersection of East 9th and Main streets.

The suspect sustained minor injuries while the second driver had moderate injuries.

Both drivers were taken to Enloe Medical Center for treatment.

Authorities said the suspect is expected to face charges of drunk driving, hit-and-run and reckless evading.

The accident 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.”

Mr. Khodaverdian is the recipient of numerous accolades including one of the: Top 10 Wrongful Death Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Motor Vehicle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Truck Accident Settlements in CA in 2019, and Top 10 Motorcycle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019.
