Fatal Solo-Vehicle Crash on Creston Rd in Templeton; Alleged Driver Arrested

Templeton, CA – According to KEYT, in the early hours of Monday, March 11, 2024, in Templeton, a solo-vehicle crash on Creston Road killed one and injured two others, while the driver fled the scene.

The California Highway Patrol reports that around 12:29 AM, the driver of a 2008 BMW 328i lost control of the vehicle while speeding eastbound on Creston Road. The vehicle left the roadway and overturned multiple times, ejecting its passengers in the process. One died and two received major injuries in the crash.

A 20-year-old Paso Robles man, believed to be the escaped driver, has since been arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter as well as felony hit-and-run.

Single-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a single-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.

Passenger Liability

The liability insurance that drivers carry is not just meant to cover accidental harm caused to those outside of the vehicle. A driver is responsible for the safety of those in their vehicle as well. While making a wrongful death or personal injury claim against someone who knew the victim personally may prove emotionally challenging, the financial burdens following a vehicular accident can be hefty.

A good personal injury attorney can help grieving families seek proper compensation for the loss by navigating these tricky issues, as well as negotiating on the victim’s behalf with insurance companies, who routinely work to minimize the payout of any claim they cannot deny.
