Miguel Dominguez Killed in Middletown Crash on Highway 29

Lake County, California – Miguel Maciel Dominguez, 47, of Clearlake was among two people who were killed in a Lake County accident involving an alleged DUI motorist near Middletown Saturday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Keilah Marie Coyle, 21, of Novato was reportedly driving a black 2003 Ford F-250 pickup south on Highway 29 when she drifted across the double yellow lines and collided head-on with an oncoming 2000 GMC van.

The van was being driven by Cassandra Elaine Rolicheck, 53, both of Clearlake, who had Dominguez as the passenger.

The crash took place at around 11:05 p.m. March 13, near Bar X Road and it caused the pickup to overturn.

Firefighters who responded to the accident extricated both Dominguez and Rolicheck from their vehicle. They were both pronounced deceased at the scene.

Coyle was hospitalized with minor injuries and later arrested on DUI and vehicular manslaughter charges.

The CHP is investigating the accident.

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.”

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.”
