Mojave, CA – A head-on collision north of Mojave on Hwy 14, south of Horse Canyon Road,  left four dead, one injured on Friday, December 29, 2023, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Victims include Gregg Ray Sauer, 61, of Lancaster, who drove a 2002 Mercedes, and his passenger, Ronald Eric Dene, 56, of Los Angeles, as well as Taylor Camille Romine, 23, of Huntington Beach, who drove a 2014 Jeep and her passengers, Rami Abdulrazak, 27, of Yorba Linda, and Jordan Romine, 24, of Huntington Beach. Only Mr. Romine survived. 

Around 8:41 PM, the Sauer, heading south, attempted to pass a slower vehicle and collided with the Jeep, heading north.

Important Notes for Injured Passengers

Injured passengers may file a claim with the driver’s insurance company. However, some insurers try to minimize the amount paid out on injury claims. When injuries are serious, a seasoned accident lawyer can work for you to maximize compensation for your claims. Always speak to an experienced attorney after any accident resulting in a serious injury.

When injuries are fatal, some surviving family members are eligible to file what is called a wrongful death claim. A “wrongful death” occurs when the intentional action or negligence of another person or company results in someone’s death. A wrongful death claim is what surviving family members file to seek financial compensation on behalf of the deceased.
