Myron Haskin Arrested after Fatal Sacramento Pedestrian Crash on Franklin Boulevard

Sacramento, California – Myron Haskin, 28, of Sacramento, was arrested early Thursday morning, March 25, following a fatal Sacramento pedestrian crash that happened on Franklin Boulevard.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Haskin was driving a Ford SUV northbound on Franklin Boulevard when he lost control of his vehicle, went off the road, and struck a male pedestrian.

The incident happened at around 2 a.m. near Turnbridge Drive.

The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

Haskin reportedly fled the scene immediately after the crash but CHP officers were able to locate his vehicle stopped on northbound Highway 99 near 12th Avenue.

Haskin was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter, hit and run, driving under the influence, and driving on a suspended license.

The identity of the deceased was not disclosed pending notification of the family.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

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.”
