Julius Cunanan Killed in San Diego Bicycle Crash on Otay Lakes Road near RV Resort

San Diego, California – Julius Kim G. Cunanan, 40, of Chula Vista has been identified as the bicyclist who died following a collision with a motorcyclist Sunday morning in San Diego, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Just before 9:30 a.m. January 11, authorities said Cunanan was part of a group of bicyclists riding eastbound at 14615 Otay Lakes Road, east of the Pio Pico RV Resort and Campground, when he was rear-ended by a motorcycle driven by Jonathan Michael Charbonnet, 43, of Chula Vista.

Emergency crews responded to the scene and performed life-saving measures on the two riders.

Both Cunanan and Charbonnet were pronounced dead at the scene.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.

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.
