Bakersfield, California – The authorities are conducting an investigation into a Bakersfield head-on accident that took place at about 2:10 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A Kia Rio was traveling west on Copus Road when it drifted into the path of oncoming traffic, for unknown reasons, and collided with an eastbound tractor trailer carrying asphalt.

The accident took place just west of SR 99.

The driver of the Kia was killed in the crash.

The second motorist, a woman in her 30s, was transported to a hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

Asphalt was spilled onto the roadway during the incident.

The CHP is working to find out the cause of 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.”

Mr. Khodaverdian is the recipient of numerous accolades including one of the: Top 10 Wrongful Death Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Motor Vehicle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Truck Accident Settlements in CA in 2019, and Top 10 Motorcycle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019.
