Santa Ysabel, California – One person was killed in a Santa Ysabel Crash on State Route 79, south of State Route 76 near Lake Henshaw on Monday morning, according to a report by the California Highway Patrol.

Just before 9 a.m., CHP said a 2018 Ford T250 van was traveling southbound on SR 79 when it drifted into the path of oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a northbound 2007 Ford F450 truck.

The driver of the van, a 62-year-old, was killed in the crash.

The other motorist was transported to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido with minor injuries.

Authorities said intoxication was not suspected to be a factor in the accident.

The crash is under investigation.

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.

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.”
