Aaron Islas Killed in Fillmore Motorcycle Accident at Victoria Avenue and Teal Club Road

Aaron Islas ID’d as Motorcyclist Killed in Crash at Victoria Avenue and Teal Club Road in Fillmore

Fillmore, California (March 6, 2020) – The motorcyclist who died in a traffic accident that happened Wednesday night in Fillmore has been identified as Aaron Islas, 33, of Ventura.

The fatal crash occurred at around 11:16 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, at the Victoria Avenue and Teal Club Road, northwest of the Oxnard Airport.

Authorities said Islas was riding a 2016 Indian Scout northbound on Victoria Avenue when he collided with a southbound 2012 Peterbilt tractor-trailer that was making a left turn onto Teal Club Road.

Islas was pronounced dead at the scene.

The truck driver, a 40-year-old Oxnard man, was unhurt and stopped at the scene to cooperate with the authorities.

It remains unclear if speed, alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident.

An investigation into the crash is underway. Anyone with information about the accident is urged to contact Senior Officer Jose Diaz at 805-385-7749.

“Far too many motorcycle collisions are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other motorists. Sadly, when this occurs, motorcyclists are the ones who tend to suffer the vast majority of injuries”, according to Arin Khodaverdian, Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. Under California’s rule of comparative negligence, a victim may be able to collect compensation for injuries and other damages even if you were partly at fault for the accident.

What to Do At the Accident Scene

Nobody is ever prepared for an accident. However, knowing what to do in case you are involved in the accident is very crucial. The following steps will help you ensure your safety and the safety of others.

  1. Stay at the scene and don’t panic.
  2. Check for injuries and immediately call for an ambulance if anyone is hurt.
  3. Notify the police even if no one is injured. The police will examine the scene and document the accident. At this point, it is important to record accurate information. You can later request a police report.
  4. If the accident is minor, it is advisable to move the vehicles to the shoulder and turn on your vehicle's hazard lights to ensure the safety of other motorists.
  5. Gather information about the other drivers involved in the accident. Also, talk to witnesses and get their information.
  6. If possible, take photos of the damage to your car and the surrounding area.
  7. Do not admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone. Do not sign any papers unless requested by the police.
  8. Do not leave the accident scene until the police have left.

After leaving the accident scene,

  1. Contact your insurance company as soon as possible.
  2. Get a copy of the accident report from the police.
  3. Get a property damage valuation.
  4. If you were injured in the accident, keep detailed notes of your injuries and track your medical treatment.
  5. Contact a reputable personal injury attorney to protect your rights.
  6. Seek legal advice before you contact your insurer to discuss your car accident claim and compensation for your personal injuries. A qualified attorney will help you recover the maximum amount of damages.
