Bakersfield, California – The Kern County coroner’s office identified Timothy Michael Wilson, 20, as one of three victims of a deadly DUI accident in Bakersfield on New Year’s Eve.

Just before 11:15 p.m. December 31, authorities said Adam Teasdale, 20, was driving a vehicle when he lost control and slammed into a tree in the center divider near Brimhall Road and Jewetta Avenue.

The impact ejected Wilson and two other passengers, identified as Andrew Nicholas Ortiz, 20, and Devin Lee Atha, 20.

The three ejected parties were reportedly pronounced dead at the scene.

Teasdale and two other passengers had minor injuries. Teasdale was also arrested and booked into the Kern County Jail for DUI and vehicular manslaughter.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing.

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.”
