Woman Killed, 2 Injured in Big Bear City Crash on Barton Lane near Holmes Lane

Big Bear City, California – A woman from Ontario died while two other people were injured when a hit-and-run driver struck them on Barton Lane east of Holmes Lane in Big Bear City on Sunday evening, according to CHP.

A 2004 Toyota Highlander was reportedly westbound on Barton Lane when it struck three pedestrians walking westbound.

The crash took place at around 6:01 p.m. January 31.

The driver, a Big Bear City resident, fled the scene after the crash but was arrested later that night.

One of the victims, a 30-year-old Ontario woman, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Two other pedestrians, a 29-year-old Long Beach man, and a 22-year-old man from Henderson, Nevada, sustained minor injuries.

The crash is under investigation.

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.”
