Needles, CA – Lavon Salabye, Dolores Garcia Killed in Sunday Crash

Fatal three-vehicle collision in Ventura County

Needles, CA (July 30, 2018) – Three people are dead and three injured after a serious collision in Needles on Sunday.  Authorities say that the crash occurred on Needles Highway just before 9:00 am.

At that time, Lavon Salabye, 34, was traveling southbound on the highway when he failed to properly negotiate a right turn.  Salabye’s vehicle continued on, striking three vehicles in the oncoming northbound lane of travel.  48-year-old Dolores Garcia died in the crash along with Salabye.  A third deceased victim has not been identified by police.  Additionally, three people were hurt in the crash.   There is no word on their conditions, although they were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating this crash.  Police have not identified the injured victims.  No additional details are currently available.

Los Angeles Wrongful Death

Our condolences go out to the deceased and we hope the injured recover quickly.

In California, a wrongful death case may be filed against a person who negligently causes the death of another.  In this case, it appears as though Lavon Salabye is responsible for the deaths.  The surviving victims, as well as the family of the deceased, will have to decide if they wish to pursue legal action against Salabye’s estate.

Typically, a wrongful death case must be brought within two years of the date of death.  However, if you have a Los Angeles wrongful death case, it is advisable to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.  Your attorney will help you with the important details to prepare your case and may also assist with negotiating a settlement.  Do not wait until the last minute to take legal action.
