Grass Valley, California – Raymond Poquette,80, was arrested following a Grass Valley crash on Highway 49 near Cerrito Road late Thursday night that left one person dead, according to the Grass Valley police.

At around 11:10 p.m. December 31, authorities said Poquette was driving a 1996 Freightliner Discovery 35-foot motorhome south on Highway 49 when he crossed into the path of oncoming traffic and collided with a northbound 2011 Nissan Altima.

The motorhome then hit the side of an oncoming 2010 Dodge Charger driven by Julius Molnar IV.

The impact of the crash caused the Dodge to flip multiple times.

A woman who was driving the Nissan was killed in the accident.

Poquette and Molnar were taken to Sutter Roseville Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Poquette was later booked at the Nevada County Jail on murder charges.

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.”
