Fiery crash becomes a story of survival for six

Six people were lucky to be alive after a high-speed, fiery crash Monday on Interstate 8 in the East Country.

Around 10:15 a.m. on westbound Interstate 8 between Pine Valley and Descanso, a San Diego Man in a Ford Expedition made an unsafe lane change, clipping the front of a motorhome. The two vehicles veered off the road and over the side, hitting the bottom of a steep, rocky ravine and then bursting into flames.

The motorhome was carrying a Colorado Springs man, his wife, and their three children.

“Multiple situations could’ve happened,” said U.S. Forest Service Battalion Chief Jason Kraling, whose crews responded to the incident, in an interview with NBC San Diega. “We’re just thankful that it turned out the way that it did, that these folks were able to make their way up the hill.”

Everyone inside both vehicles managed to escape without being burned. They then scrambled up the hill as paramedics and firefighters arrived.

“Luckily, no one was seriously injured out of all of this,” said California Highway Patrol spokesman Kevin Pearlstein in an interview with NBC San Diego. “We’ve had several crashes where recreational vehicles just open up like a can, is basically what happens. You peel the can; whatever’s in there just goes wherever. So, very lucky.”

Injuries ranged from a gashed forehead suffered by the woman to mild and moderate bodily injuries for the rest. All were treated at Sharp Memorial Hospital.

The accident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed as of yet.

In Southern California, two accidents occurred over the weekend that caused major distress for police officers and those involved. A Los Angeles crash produced one fatality and a San Diego collision left an injured child abandoned in a wrecked vehicle.

On Saturday afternoon in East Los Angeles, a crash occurred after police were led on a high-speed pursuit. A reckless driver in an SUV that may have been stolen sped away from the police after they attempted to pull him over. The chase lasted five minutes and concluded when the SUV crashed into a truck and another car.

The accident took place in El Sereno around the 5300 block of Poplar Boulevard. Paramedics arrived on the scene and immediately found one dead bystander.

Four others were injured from the accident, three men and one woman. One man was in critical condition, while the other three injured parties were reported to be in fair conditions.

The driver of the SUV tried to escape once more after exiting his wrecked vehicle, but officers caught up to him. He was arrested and suffered injuries from bites of a police dog.

The accident is still under investigation, but the driver will likely face criminal charges for both the status of the SUV and the results of the crash.

On Sunday evening in Old Town, San Diego, a vehicle collision occurred resulting with an injured child and a runaway driver. The accident was reported by witnesses who saw a truck dangling off of the edge of the Interstate 5 Southbound freeway.

California Highway Patrol rushed to the scene where they were told by witnesses that a man ran from the crash, despite there being an injured child in the backseat.

Officers found a two-year-old child strapped into the vehicle’s backseat as it hung off of the highway. The child’s condition is currently unknown; however, it was transported to Rady Children’s Hospital immediately.

The driver of the truck is suspected to be a Hispanic male in his 30s. He was seen wearing a white shirt, black shorts, and sandals. CHP is working hard to find the runaway and is currently investigating the registration information of the vehicle.

Accidents are incredibly unfortunate, no matter the situation. If you or someone you know was involved in an accident, whether it caused fatalities or included runaway drivers; contact a Los Angeles accident attorney today for assistance. Our lawyers will help you in finding medical attention and filing claims; and will ensure that you receive the highest possible compensation for the damages that you suffered, including punitive damages for instances of death.

Husband Suspected In Murder Of Wife

Most people don’t realize that killing a spouse is far more common than people realize. Of course, there are some famous examples of wife-killing. Football legend O.J. Simpson murdered his ex-wife and her lover in 1994. Several years later Scott Peterson murdered his wife. These crimes can also happen in your neighborhood.

The search for a missing husband and wife has turned into a homicide investigation after the husband was found in San Diego on Thursday morning.

Two days after the couple went missing, and police officers saw signs of a struggle inside their home, police officials said they believe Quee Chadwick is the victim of a homicide. They have not found her body.

Officers were called to the couple’s million-dollar home in a gated community in Newport Beach at 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to a statement released by the Newport Beach police department.

A neighbor contacted authorities when she found the couple’s children had not been picked up for school that day.

Newport Beach police officials would not go into detail as to what was found inside the home on Almanzora on Wednesday, but said there were signs of a struggle and possible foul play.

Police began a search for Peter Chadwick and his wife Wednesday but decided not to release any details to the public because of the ongoing investigation.

At about 5:30 a.m. Thursday, Peter Chadwick contacted San Diego police.

Police declined to say why the Newport Beach man contacted police in San Diego.

After working with San Diego police, Newport Beach police took Chadwick into custody on suspicion of homicide.

Lowe said police had been searching for both Chadwick and his wife, but investigators began to focus on the possibility of homicide after he contacted police in San Diego.

Officers are now focusing their attention on finding Quee Chadwick, and searching the area that Peter Chadwick traveled 12 hours before contacting San Diego police. Lowe would not specify what area police were searching.

If a loved one was the victim of wrongful death that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Chargers’ Running Back in Minor Car Accident

A popular sports athlete has been involved in a minor collision while in the Sports Arena. San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews received minor injuries on Monday, July 30 after being involved in a two-vehicle collision around midnight. Luckily no major injuries were acquired from the car accident.

While driving down a road on his way to a team hotel, Mathews was going to the Interstate 8 at Sports Arena Boulevard when he lost control of his 2010 BMW. After losing control, his car drifted, causing him to turn the wheel which eventually made the BMW spin out. While his car spun out, that was when he hit another vehicle. The collision is what caused Mathews to have aches and minor pains the next day. The NFL player was taken to a hospital to be checked for any possible serious injuries.

The football star told reporters that he was only banged up “a little bit” at his elbow and was extremely sore the following day. He also told the press that he felt as if he had just played about four football games when he woke up the next morning.

The running back was suspected of driving too fast. However, neither alcohol nor drugs appeared to be involved in the accident. Fortunately, the driver in the other car was not hurt and did not receive any personal injury from the mishap.

The Southern Californian football team was off Monday but began training again on Tuesday afternoon. Mathews sat out the practice and just watched from the side lines. The coach, Norv Turner, said that Mathews has a “day to day” status because of his current condition.

Ryan Mathews joined the Chargers two years ago when he was the first draft pick in April of 2010. He has signed a five year contract with the NFL team.

Getting into a car accident can cause major whiplash and sometimes internal injuries that do not manifest or show up until days—sometimes even weeks—later. It was smart that Mathews went to the hospital following his car crash just to make sure he did not receive any injuries that can prevent him from playing football successfully.

It is important to not drive too fast and to be careful out on the road. It was lucky that neither Mathews nor the other driver was hurt when the BMW spun out. Besides Mathews professional football career, there are still other things to worry about—such as the safety of those in the road. If you have been involved in a car collision, make sure you go to the hospital and get checked up on a doctor. Your number one priority should be your health. And as soon as you are able, call a San Diego car accident attorney to consult about any personal injury you may have gotten as a result of the crash impact. Remember to drive safely and to fight for your rights.

Marine Wife Murdered During Bizarre Sex Ritual

Watch the company you keep. Sometimes hanging out with the wrong people can be deadly. That’s what happened to the estranged wife of a Marine stationed in Afghanistan.

The three people accused of killing the 22-year-old Marine wife were engaged in a sadistic sexual lifestyle that may be linked to her death.

Detectives believe two of the defendants, a Marine and his girlfriend, may have sexually accosted Brittany Dawn Killgore before killing her.

Four search warrants, ordered released by an appeals court over the objections of the district attorney’s office, provide an inside look at the unusual relationship involving Staff Sgt. Louis Perez, 45; Jessica Lopez, 25; and Dorothy Maraglino, 36, all charged with murder in connection with Killgore’s slaying.

The three shared a house in Fallbrook in northern San Diego County where detectives believe Killgore may have been killed either April 13 or April 14. Her body was found days later near Lake Skinner in Riverside County.

Perez, Lopez and Maraglino routinely engaged in sex play that included bondage, punishment, masks, whips, spanking, cutting, a “sex dungeon,” an unspecified “sex apparatus” and role-playing of slave, servant and master.

“Because of Perez and Maraglino’s unusual sex fetishes, I believe they may have accosted Killgore for these reasons,” one San Diego County Sheriff’s Department detective wrote in a sworn affidavit accompanying a search warrant.

The search warrants include an assertion that an unidentified woman was once held hostage in the “sex dungeon” until she submitted.

On April 13, Killgore agreed to accompany Perez to San Diego for a dinner cruise.

Within 13 minutes of Perez picking her up at her residence, Killgore texted a friend: “Help.” Unable to get a response from Killgore, the friend texted back: “Brittany, Are U OK? I am freaking out here.”

Perez sent back texts via Killgore’s phone indicating that nothing was amiss.

Perez was the first to be arrested. Detectives found a stun gun and gloves with blood that matched Killgore in his truck.

Perez told detectives that he had taken Killgore to the Whiskey Girl Club in the Gaslamp District in San Diego but that the two had become separated. Investigators believe Perez and Killgore never left Fallbrook.

Lopez was arrested at a San Diego motel where she had been drinking heavily and had attempted suicide. In a profanity-laced seven-page note addressed “PIGS READ THIS,” she claimed to have killed Killgore out of jealousy and dumped her body “in almost plain sight.”

In the note, Lopez referred to Perez as “Master” and Maraglino as “Mistress.” Lopez was Perez’s former girlfriend; Maraglino was his current girlfriend.

Killgore’s body showed signs of strangulation and attempts at dismemberment, as Lopez’s note suggested, according to one search warrant. The documents were released at the request of several news organizations.

Perez, Lopez and Maraglino have pleaded not guilty. All remain in county jail on $3 million bail each. Killgore’s husband returned from Afghanistan on emergency leave after the killing.

If someone you love was the victim of wrongful death or some other type of negligent and reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Two Boys Dead, Several Injured in I-15 Crash

A car collision on Sunday, July 15 proved to be fatal for two young boys. While on their way home from a family vacation in Palm Springs, the two boys and their family were involved in a rollover crash on Interstate 15. The two boys, ages 9 and 10, were declared dead on the scene.

The accident happened at approximately 2:30 p.m. A Dodge minivan, driven by Roy Fuffin Jr., had reportedly spun out of control on the freeway and overturned just north of Deer Springs Road after it had collided with a 2008 Scion. Roy Fuffin Jr., 52-years old, suffered minor personal injuries. The driver of the Scion Lisa Wehus, 24-years old, was injured. Her Scion was damaged but she was still able to driver it to the center median after the crash.

Latrelle Pearon, 10, was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown out of the vehicle. Xavier Williams, 9, was wearing his seatbelt and was partially ejected. The two children were among the seven passengers inside the 2002 Dodge Caravan leaving Palm Springs on the I-15 South. Both died on the scene when the accident occurred.

The driver of the minivan was taken to Palomar Regional Medical Center and treated for minor injuries. The other four passengers of the Dodge Caravan were also taken to different hospitals since they had attained varying degrees of personal injury.

Witnesses of the accident are asked to come forward so that California Highway Patrol officers will be able to better investigate the scene and the accident. Anyone with information is being asked to contact CHP officials in regards to the crash. The cause of the accident is under investigation since officials are still unsure of what may have caused it. Currently, it is suspected that both cars had attempted a lane change at the same time, causing the two parties to collide into one another. Both vehicles were reported to be going at 70 to 75 mph speeds.

Two of the northbound I-15 lanes were closed for some time after the accident as officers investigated and cleaned up the scene. Traffic was backed up for quite some time before the lanes were reopened.

The identities of the two boys were released on Monday, July 16.

This accident must have left a huge impact on the family. Losing two loved ones is hard to bear and may take significant time to process and accept. The medical bills, extra costs, and car damages may just be one more thing the family has to worry about. If a situation like this or one similar has ever happened to you, know that you can have a team of lawyers ready to assist you in legal matters and prepared to fight for your rights.

If you have ever been personally injured in an accident, or have lost a loved one in a wrongful death, contact a San Diego car accident attorney. Filing a claim against the wrongdoings done to you will help you gain the compensation you deserve during this difficult and trying time.

16-Year Old Pleads Guilty to Vehicular Manslaughter

Result of a serious automobile accident

There are many misfortunate accidents that occur in freeways. Most of these spring out of nowhere and are out of our control. No one likes an accident, and no one expects to get into an accident when they are safe drivers. Passengers of a vehicle leave their safety up to the driver; and if the driver is a friend, these car occupants put their trust in the driver. Sadly, a driver can still be reckless with an automobile despite who is in the car—friend or not.

A minor has pleaded guilty to a crash that killed two of his passengers. Zach Bishop, a 16-year old from San Diego, was racing another vehicle on a freeway when the car crashed. The accident killed two of his teenage passengers and critically hospitalized two. Bishop received moderate injuries. In a Juvenile Court on Monday, July 2, Bishop pleaded guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter resulting in death.

Bishop could be facing a maximum of seven years and four months in prison. His trial and sentencing will be done by Judge Browder Willis on Monday, July 16.

The accident had happened on Wednesday, April 4. Bishop was racing 18-year old Michael S. Johnson on the Route 52 eastbound highway. Witnesses say that the two vehicles were going about 100 mph before the crash. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office was able to identify the two victims as 18-year old Anthony Foreman and 16-year old Jayli James Campbell. The other passengers in Bishop’s vehicle included an unnamed 17-year old and 15-year old Charlotte McQuillen who is Bishop’s girlfriend. McQuillen and the 17-year old victim were taken to the hospital for critical injuries. McQuillen was in a comma for five days.

Bishop was driving a Volkswagen Pasat and Johnson was racing a Volvo S40. No one in the Volvo received any personal injury. It was confirmed that Bishop had not been under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. Johnson was arrested in suspicion that he was driving under the influence of marijuana. A small amount of marijuana was found in Johnson’s Volvo. He was released a few days after his arrest on a $50,000 bail.

Bishop was kept in medical isolation after the incident to allow him time to think about the consequences of his actions. Prosecutors were recommending that Bishop be charged as an adult. The 16-year old had a previous driving record of speeding at 90 mph earlier in the year in February.

The negligent driving which Bishop committed resulted in catastrophic wrongful deaths and personal injuries. As the driver of a full car, he had a responsibility to make sure his passengers were safe. Not only that, but Bishop was only 16 and was not yet permitted to have passengers. He had knowingly put his friends’ lives in danger and is paying the price for careless driving.

This accident is misfortunate. The families of the deceased victims must be distraught and tormented at the outcome of this crash. If you have lost a loved one in a wrongful death, or if you yourself have received personal injury, call a San Diego car accident lawyer today and let justice do its work.

High School Party with 200 Teens Ended by Police

Graduation season is upon us. With high school and college students finishing up their classes, graduation ceremonies and parties are sure to follow. The excitement is filling the air as hopeful graduates look forward to summer vacation and/or starting new careers. Along with graduation is summer and all its glory looming around the corner. Take these two entities—graduation and summer—and we have a recipe for impulsive yet sometimes careless behavior.

When a student graduates, the first instinct is to rejoice—and rightfully so. After years of schooling, graduation is a time for celebration and joy. However, these celebrations can sometimes get out of hand. Take for instance, the shenanigans of a San Diego home on Saturday night, June 16. While his parents were away, 18-year old Laurenz Jacobsen decided to throw a party to celebrate graduation and the end of the school year. This type of action can be considered typical of any high school student: the boy and his friends just graduated, summer is almost in session, and the kid wanted something unforgettable to put a bow on the four years of fond memories. Unfortunately, he hadn’t anticipated the police officers to come by and put a stop to the rowdiness.

A minimum price of 50p per unit is urgently needed, according to leading liver disease specialists. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

The recent graduate of La Costa Canyon High School hosted a party at his parents’ house in Encinitas on Saturday night. Whether or not he expected it, about 200 teenagers showed up at his house. There was a lot of alcohol found in the household. Jacobsen may be found violating a “social host” ordinance since he let visitors partake in underage drinking. The fine can cost up to $1,000.

Police showed up at the house after neighbors called with a noise complaint. Two teens were arrested after being drunk in public. A bit comically, police officers also found many teens hidden around the house, in closets and bathrooms. The teens present were told to call their parents so that they could get picked up.

While this scenario is a bit lighthearted in that no one was injured or caused personal injuries to others, there are other times when casualties and harm became an unwanted outcome. If a partygoer had been hurt during the party, he or she could have easily filed a personal injury claim with a lawyer to seek compensation for injuries. That would have turned this party much more solemn if serious charges were filed.

Another scenario could be of a drunk driver speeding off from the party and crashing into another driver’s car, causing injury and maybe even wrongful death. This type of situation can lead to much more serious consequences. Personal injury or wrongful death claims could be filed, driving probation given, and many more serious penalties could have resulted. A joyous celebration could turn unfortunate if house residents, people present, and drivers were not careful.

Remember, if you have been at a party and been the victim of personal injury, there are legal actions you can take. Call a San Diego personal injury lawyer for consultation and to see which steps you should take.

Doctor Responsible for Deaths in Patients’ Drug Overdose

Many Americans have a big fear of going to doctor and dentist appointments. Most of the time, this fear is unnecessary since regular doctor and dentist visits are beneficial and helpful. After all, medical professionals are here to help patients and to prevent any future illnesses.  Yet, many patients have an unhealthy anxiety that something may go wrong. While most of the time doctors have had positive input in their patients’ health, there is still that occasional doctor that abuses his or her prestige. The medical malpractice of these disreputable doctors stems the unhealthy fears of numerous patients. Sadly, it can take just one doctor to cause the fear of thousands.

On Tuesday, June fifth, a former California doctor was present at a preliminary hearing. The doctor, Hsui-Ying “Lisa” Tseng, faced charges of second-degree murder of three male patients—Joey Rovero, Vu Nguyen, and Steven Ogle—by purposely prescribing them drug overdoses. Since her arrest in March, Tseng has been in custody, pleading not guilty to the 24 felony counts held against her.

During Tseng’s court case, a witness attested of three male patients who came to Tseng. All three of these young male victims ended up dead after the doctor gave them prescriptions without proper care and diagnosis beforehand.

Another person brought to the court case is pain specialist, Dr. William Strauser, from San Diego. After reviewing the records Tseng kept of the medical conditions of the three victims, Strauser stated that he did not know what Tseng was intending as treatment for them. Tseng had not made it clear whether she intended to follow up with her patients. And sadly, each man only visited Tseng once before dying of an overdose.

This kind of medical malpractice surfaces once in a while but is certainly not common behavior. The wrongful death Tseng may have caused is why she can be possibly sentenced to 45 years of prison. When the young males came to Tseng describing their symptoms, she uncomprehendingly prescribed them large amounts of sedatives and opiates.

In one situation, Joey Rovero, a 21-year old patient of Tseng’s, came to her office in Rowland Heights and described the pain and discomfort he was feeling. Rovero was on high doses of Oxycontin, Xanax, and Soma. As a solution, Tseng decided to dramatically decrease his daily dose of Oxycontin from 480 and 640 milligrams to a low of 90 milligrams. The average dose is normally 140 milligrams. Strauser has said that dramatically decreasing doses can create withdrawal effects on a patient. Tseng also decreased his Xanax drug from eight milligrams to two milligrams. This decrease could have eventually caused Rovero seizures.

If you have been the victim of medical malpractice that has caused minor or severe side effects or have lost a loved one due to a medical professional’s carelessness, you should contact a California wrongful death lawyer to help you file a claim. The kind of pain and suffering Tseng has caused to the victims’ families did not go by unnoticed as she is currently paying the price for it in court. You can take the same legal action by calling a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer and making sure the guilty individual acknowledges their wrong-doings for the distress and suffering they have caused.
