Gerardo Castro, Alejandro Garibary Injured in Suspected DUI Templeton Accident on Old County Road

Templeton, California – Gerardo Jesus Castro, 19, and Alejandro Palacios Garibary, 19, were injured in a suspected DUI Templeton motorcycle accident that happened early Tuesday morning on Old County Road.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Castro was riding a 2002 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on Old County Road at a high rate of speed and under the influence of alcohol when he failed to negotiate a curve and went into a front yard of a residence.

The motorcycle crashed into a fence and ejected both Castro and Garibary, who had been his passenger.

The accident took place at around 2:10 a.m. February 2.

Castro fled the scene of the accident on foot but was found shortly after hiding behind an apartment complex.

Both riders were not wearing their helmets and were taken to a hospital with fractures and other injuries.

Authorities arrested Castro on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run.

The incident 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.”
