Sonoma, CA – Malachi Hussain Killed and Juan Reynoso-Bedolla Injured in Fatal Crash on Highway 121
Sonoma, CA (January 17, 2019) On January 16th, a fatal crash happened on Highway 121 at about 3:00 p.m. According to the reports, 25-year-old Malachi Hussain from Livermore was speeding on the highway in the rain when he lost control of his vehicle, crossed the divider line and collided head-on with a 1996 Dodge pickup truck that contained 48-year-old Juan Reynoso-Bedolla and his two passengers.
When the paramedics arrived at the scene to help, they found Hussain fatally injured. They also found Reynosa-Bedolla suffering from minor injuries and transported him to Queen of the Valley Hospital for treatment. His two passengers, 30-year-old Jose Bedolla-Mendoza and 38-year-old Elias Mendoza-Bedolla did not sustain any injuries.
The police are currently investigating this accident, but so far, they believe speed and wet roads were contributing factors.
We are saddened by the news of Malachi losing his life in this collision. We send our condolences to his family as they work through this difficult time. We hope Reynoso-Bedolla fully recovers from his injuries without any complications.
Vehicle Accidents in California
Recent studies show that in 2007, about 13,040 people suffered fatal injuries in accidents caused by speed. Whenever people decide to drive above the recommended speed limit, they’re either under the influence, distracted, or in a rush. The federal government places speed limit signs to protect the public from harm, not to inconvenience drivers. Therefore, it’s vital that drivers pay attention to road signs. Otherwise, more people will continue to lose their lives every year due to negligent driving.
Once the police finalize the exact factors that led to this crash and who will be deemed liable, it’s possible that a wrongful death lawsuit will be filed and/or a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a California attorney.
