Hwy 101 Crash Kills Arroyo Grande Driver, 18, in Pismo Beach Blaze

Pismo Beach, CA – According to the San Luis Obispo Tribune, an 18-year-old resident of Arroyo Grande lost his life in a fiery crash on Highway 101 near Pismo Beach late Tuesday night, May 2, 2024.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports that at approximately 11:42 PM an officer patrolling northbound on Highway 101 in Pismo Beach noticed a vehicle engulfed in flames on the southbound side of the freeway, near the Mattie Road off-ramp. The vehicle had evidently been involved in a severe collision.

Upon closer inspection, the officer discovered a single individual lying on the western embankment of the southbound side of Highway 101. Although the officer detected a pulse at first, the driver unfortunately succumbed to their injuries. They were pronounced dead at the scene by a San Luis Obispo ambulance response team around 11:57 PM.

The circumstances surrounding the crash remain under investigation. The CHP’s initial report indicated that it is unclear whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

Liability in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a solo-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.
