Man Killed in Head-On Collision on Highway 126 in Piru Identified

Piru, California – Jose De Loa Huerta, 44, from Ivanhoe, is the man who was killed in a Piru head-on crash that took place on Highway 126 near Center Street early Monday morning, according to the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office.

According to the California Highway Patrol, De Loa Huerta was driving a black Ford F-150 pickup truck westbound on Highway 126 when, for unknown reasons, he went out of control of the truck and crossed the center median into eastbound lanes.

The Ford then collided head-on with a white Freightliner box truck, CHP said.

The collision was reported at around 5:20 a.m. on March 15.

De Loa Huerta was pronounced dead at the scene.

The box truck driver, a 31-year-old Fillmore man, was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

The crash caused a closure of all eastbound lanes of Route 126 near Fillmore as authorities investigated the incident.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

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.”
