88-Year-Old Woman Killed, Robert Frost Hospitalized after Inyo County Crash on U.S. 395 and Gill Station Coso Road
Inyo County, California (February 14, 2020) – An 88-year-old woman from Arizona was killed while a driver identified as Robert Frost, 78, of Green Valley, Arizona, was injured after a big rig accident on Thursday afternoon in Inyo County, according to police.
The accident occurred on U.S. 395 near the Coso Road Rest Area.
The CHP said at about 2:00 p.m., on February 13, a 2016 Nissan Versa, driven by Frost, was traveling west on Gill Station Coso Road. John Stiegler, 37, of Ridgecrest, was heading north on U.S. 395, in a 2014 International semi.
Stiegler then struck the side of the Nissan after he failed to yield while entering the intersection. Stiegler was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash.
The impact sent the Nissan rolling into the center divider of the U.S. 395.
The 88-year-old woman, a passenger in the Nissan, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Frost was airlifted to a hospital in Bakersfield for treatment.
Stiegler reported no injuries due to the crash.
An investigation is underway.
Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, Mr. Arin Khodaverdian believes that car accident claims are rarely straightforward regardless of the circumstances involved. “Liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim and it is crucial, therefore, to have an experienced attorney on your side,” He said.
Mr. Khodaverdian has worked for many years as a wrongful death and personal injury attorney. He and his team of attorneys have helped thousands of injury victims and their families recover over $100 million in compensation. “In one case, we recovered a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim who was killed by a negligent driver.”
Swift action by an experienced attorney helps preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and begin to pursue those responsible for the incident.
