Santa Rosa, California – Tomasa Valero Vargas, 44, of Sonoma has been identified by the Sonoma County Coroner’s Office as the mother who was killed, along with her daughter, in a Santa Rosa crash on Highway 12, just west of Oakmont Drive Monday morning.

According to CHP, Vargas’ daughter Alondra Bandt Valero, 21, of Sonoma, was driving a black Nissan Sentra west on the highway when she lost control at a curve and moved into the path of a westbound white Chevrolet truck, driven by Michael Williams, 60, of Santa Rosa.

The accident happened at around 8:19 a.m. January 3.

Both Vargas and Valero were extricated from the wreckage by the firefighters and were pronounced dead at the scene.

Williams, who sustained moderate injuries in the accident, was transported to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

An investigation into the collision 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.”
