Adrian Sapien Killed in Newbury Park Crash on 101 Freeway

Newbury Park, California – One of the victims of a deadly traffic crash on the 101 Freeway in Newbury Park on Thursday afternoon has been identified by the authorities as Adrian Sapien, 25, of Ventura.

The wreck happened shortly after noon on February 4.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Gina Garcia, 58, of Ventura was driving a Kia north on the 101 Freeway when, for unknown reasons, she swerved into the fast lane and collided with a gray Chevrolet SUV at Borchard Road. 

The Kia then drifted back into the slow lane and collided with a black Toyota sedan. 

The force of the crash pushed the Kia off the side of the freeway and it collided with a tree along the side, before overturning.

Two passengers in the Kia, identified as Sapien and Brianne Hayes, 24, of Oxnard, were both killed in the crash.

Authorities said Garcia was taken to Los Robles Medical Center with major injuries. She was also arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and vehicular manslaughter.

The CHP 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.”
