Fatal Car Crash on Highway 29 in Lakeport

Lakeport, California – The California Highway Patrol is investigating a Lakeport car accident on Highway 29 near 11th Street that claimed the life of one person early Sunday morning.

Just after midnight, January 24, a 22-year-old man from Ukiah was driving a 2014 Jeep Cherokee southbound on Highway 29 when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a center median.

The Jeep reportedly veered back, crossing all southbound lanes, hitting a tree and a fence before it came to a stop on Mountain View Road.

The Ukiah man was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was ejected from the car.

CHP said the man was declared deceased at the scene. His name was not released pending family notification.

More details about the crash were not provided.

An investigation into the crash 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.”
