3 Hospitalized, Marc Larkins Arrested after Nevada Car Accident on Nevada City Highway
Nevada, California (March 17, 2020) – Three people were injured in a head-on car crash on Sunday afternoon in Nevada, according to police.
The crash occurred at about 1:35 p.m., on March 15, on Nevada City Highway.
The police said a white 1998 Ford F-150, driven by Marc Anthony Larkins, 26, of Grass Valley, collided head-on with a Honda CR-V. Larkins crossed into the pathway of the Honda, and the two vehicles collided.
The Honda driver, a 66-year-old man, was taken to Roseville hospital while his 22-year-old passenger was transported to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, both for treatment of severe injuries.
A passenger in Larkins car, only identified as a 19-year-old person, was also hospitalized for treatment.
Larkins was reportedly intoxicated at the time of the crash.
Larkins injuries were treated and he was later booked into Nevada County Jail on Sunday for a felony count of DUI causing bodily injury and a misdemeanor charge of driving without a license. He remained in custody as of Monday on a $75,000 bond.
The crash remains under investigation.
According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary so as clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, 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. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
